    Good results withThule Aero racks and web straps with metal buckles. Yakima round bars seem to hum at high speeds, and Thule square bars seem more likely to dent a board.

    Do you like bigger surf?

    Yes, Few things will put your heart in your throat as fast as paddling up a rising face and trying to get through / over it before it gets vertical. During a particularly sketchy hurricane swell at the tip of Long Island, there was a torrent of a longshore current, jumbled big peaks and a...

    Do you like bigger surf?

    Fully agree with all posts on this topic. TonyPR nailed it with his observations. We surf crappy waves to be in shape for better waves. Friends of mine that have stayed out of the water and then head out when it's macking are usually the ones complaining of injured backs and torn tendons/...

    Noserider Sizing for Bigger Guys

    I had an 10' Infinity "Rad Noserider" that had plenty of volume and paddled easily. You might keep an eye out for one as they've been around for a while and used ones are out there. If you're looking for a big pig I'll bump my green Phillips back up to the top of the list for you to look...

    An Ode to Bodysurfing

    Again this is funny timing! I was going through some old surf stuff yesterday while looking over my collection of board bags, and ran across a new pair of Churchill Makapuu fins, unused and still in the box, and my old "Hand Gun" bodysurf planer from the early 80's. was just now logging on to...
