Robert from Blue Planet Surf got a Onewheel and we tried it out in the parking lot. It’s not as easy as it looks in the marketing videos. Robert gives us a quick breakdown and we review it together.

I recently had the chance to try out the Kai Zen Paddle with the 98″ wide blade on a SUP surfing session. The Kai Zen has a super solid catch and it really grips the water, which means you get a lot more paddle power.

The best treatment I’ve come across when dealing with shoulder injuries is RICE. Rest – Ice – Compression – Elevation. Although I own a Game Ready system, I use Hyperice when on the go because it’s portable and simple to use. Shoulder Icing is one of the best ways to stay in action. Our shoulders can’t heal until the inflammation is gone and one of the most effective ways to battle inflammation is ice.

I saw Todd Bradley from C4 Waterman and he showed me the waterproof camera that he was using. It wasn’t a GoPro. It was a point and shoot Fuji XP80. Todd said that Dale Hope and some others turned him onto it and he liked it.

I wanted to try out the Blue Planet All Good 8′8″x32″x4″ board since I’m really used to riding the Starboard 8′10″ Wide Point. I really love this size. It’s short enough to surf well and still has decent paddle power. Both boards fit easily in my van. The Blue Planet All Good has almost 20 liters less volume than the Starboard and that makes a difference for riders over 215 lbs. Anyone under 190 lbs can ride almost anything but heavier riders have less options and need to be more skilled to ride a board under 9′.

Here’s a quick review of Blue Planet Surf Hawaii’s new 10′6″ Multi Tasker Inflatable SUP Board. It is a fun, all-around board that you can use for cruising or even SUP surfing on small waves. Another good thing about the board is you can let your kids use it with having to worry that they might damage it.

Welcome to another episode of Board Meeting. In this episode, Robert and I will talk about the GoPro Hero4 Session camera. The GoPro Hero4 Session is an excellent camera for use in the water. It is waterproof so you won’t need to use a housing like on the other GoPro models, and it also has good audio recording.
