Meetup with Joe Blair and his stand up paddle board at Legoland

As I mentioned in a recent post, I’m on a trip in California. I was able to make a stop by Infinity Surf and Ron House’s place on the drive from Los Angeles to San Diego and then resumed the trip from there. My wife has been a little peeved at me because after the day is done I get right on my computer to check out what’s happening with the stand up paddle scene, check the comments on and get some work done.

Stand Up Paddle Surf Instructional Video

(click thumbnail to launch video)

Ran across this pretty cool instructional video on Stand Up Surf. Very well done.

California stand up paddle surf pioneers Steve Boehne (Infinity Surf) and Ron House (Laird Hamilton’s shaper)

I’m currently dry because I’m on a California trip but I did get a chance to stop in and visit Steve Boehne at Infinity Surf in Dana Point and Ron House in San Clemente. Both run unique operations and it was very interesting to see the similarities and differences in their design and direction. Steve developed the odd shaped otter blade stand up paddle. His perspective is very different from Todd’s at C4 and you’ll see why.

Must get stand up paddle surf

Winds howling, high tide, not much swell… but I had to get some stand up paddle surf today. I have had nothing else on my mind since meeting up with Blane Chambers this weekend. I was up on the North Shore of Oahu running some errands and was able to drop by Wahiawa on my way back into town. Rachel and I drove to his shop and walked into what could be considered a modern art gallery. Super clean and spacious (for Hawaii standards) with all sorts of boards in the racks. It was easy to see that the shop capacity is much more than what’s on hand today. Continue reading ‘Must get stand up paddle surf’

Duke’s OceanFest 2007

By Todd Bradley of C4 Waterman

With arms outspread in a gesture of welcome to all, the larger-than-life bronze statue of Duke Kahanamoku on the shores of Waikiki Beach delineates where the pavement ends and the ocean that Duke loved so much, and mastered so well, begins. The annual Duke’s OceanFest celebration recently brought together surfers and surf enthusiasts from around the world to enjoy the many forms of surfing that Duke loved to savor at Waikiki. If the “father of surfing” were still around, he would have been honored to see his beloved sport and all its offshoots being practiced and enjoyed by so many.

Stand up paddle surfing behind a boat and in white water rapids video

I found this video surfing youtube. I guess you can stand up paddle surf behind a boat. I kinda want to try this behind a jet ski but i doubt the wave will be big enough.

Stand up paddle grip review

I just put on the C4 grip on my stand up paddle. My paddle is 78″ long and the blade is 8.5″. I have another one that’s 80″ long which I use for downwind paddles and when I let my friends use my other boards. I think I installed it wrong but it still works. I don’t know if I like the grip diameter being so big but it does make the paddle easier on my hands and add a lot of extra grip. I like that it’s a bright color which makes it easy to spot in the water if I drop it. The downside is that when it gets dirty it looks really dirty.

Save your rails on your stand up paddle surfboard with video

When I first started stand up paddle surfing I would hit the rails of the stand up board A LOT. I still hit it and have even taken chunks out of the rails. The carbon fiber stand up paddles are strong and easily dent and ding the epoxy boards. My friend’s board looks like a shark ate the rail. It is wasted almost the entire length of the rail. I gotta get a picture to post but I don’t think he’ll like that.

The first solution was to tape up the edge of the stand up paddle with electric tape. That works reasonably well but a hard hit and the gel coat comes off the rail. Then I tried ‘rim rubber’ which is made for kayak paddles. It looks like door jam material and you use Aqua Seal glue to make it stick. It looks and works great on kayak paddles because they are relatively flat on the blade. Continue reading ‘Save your rails on your stand up paddle surfboard with video’

Stand up paddle surf Dreaming

Been dreaming of stand up paddle surfing. Thinking of stand up paddle surfing. Wishing I could stand up paddle surf. Finally cracked and grabbed my 9′6″ Chambers this morning for a quick paddle at Old Man’s. It was gale force winds, but I had to get wet. No one in the water anywhere so waves were all mine. Managed a couple fun rides and got my fix.

I’m dreaming of a new board. Custom Chambers? 9′2″ Chambers production board? Hand shaped Jimmy Lewis? 10′ C-4 boardworks? It is amazing the selection of boards we have available today. I remember not too long ago when I had to use a Surftech Munoz because there was nothing else around.

F-16 High Tech Stand Up Paddle Board for distance runs and downwinders

My buddy Jeff Chang at Wet Feet Hawaii turned me onto the F-16 stand up paddle board for distance runs. I guess they do up to 30 mile paddles on this bad boy. I can’t wait to get him to let me try his out. Jeff got me so excited yesterday when he was telling me about it. He said that it was like riding a continuous wave the whole paddle run. It’s because you can actually ride open ocean swells and any little bump during your ride as long as the wind is fairly strong.
