Only one more day and I’m off to Maui to join Pono Bill, StoneAxe and the gang to test out a slew of stand up paddle equipment. More info here http://www.ponohouse.com/ponoblog/the-big-board-comparison/. I think Bill has something like 20 to 30 boards to test in one day. I’m interested to see how this will be done because it’s already tricky to test out 2 boards side by side. Times that by 10 and it will definitely get interesting.
The part for me that I’m worrying about is trying to ride all the boards because I’m not in top physical shape and it may be embarrassing when all the older guys and ladies last longer than me. Actually, that shouldn’t be that much of an issue because I’m already used to it.
The main reason I am flying to Maui is to meet all the cool people involved with this sport and I’ve always wanted to meet Bill and Bob in person. I’m excited and will hopefully have some good feedback in the near future. Thanks Bill!
