Re: Popular jellyfish sting remedies make it worse

Lifeguards here all have an anti-sting spray that works really well, I'm not sure exactly what kind it is. Something vinegar-based, I believe. Had to ask them to spray me down a few years ago when I somehow got a man o' war tentacle inside the back of my wetsuit... looked like I had been given a few...

Re: TwinTip Fin Size Selection

something between 1.5 and 2" is the default for most boards. bigger = more grip but less easy turning. i usually ride bigger fins because it's usually super choppy here, the extra fin size helps go upwind a little easier. In flat water you dont even need fins. Beyond that, edt has a good response.

Re: Strut length - your preferences

I think shorter masts are more fun, you can really throw them around without the consequence of the longer lever of a big mast. But there is usually enough chop that anything smaller than 90cm sucks for going upwind, i wouldnt even mind riding 100cm or maybe a little longer if I cared about optimal ...

Re: What board in strapless jungle vid?

The skimboard I’m using is a custom skimboard made by a friend of mine. The board is made out of carbon and kevlar with a high density foam core. Pretty much indestructible!

Re: Cabrinha FX 2016 vs 2017

What happens when the bridle stretches or how can you identify it? Cause I have a well used 2014 switchblade that flies perfectly in 15 - 25 knots but when it gets over 30 knots or gusty conditions it just fucks off to the left until it hits the water and becomes almost impossible to control. That'...

Re: Directional, Front pad

I used to only use wax and it's fine, you just have to redo it a lot more than if you were surfing. Your heel will smear the wax and make little holes/gaps in it over time, so you end up having to apply quite a bit every session where your front foot is. I would scrape the front part of the board an...

Re: 2013 Best Kahoona + 10.5m vs 2007 Waroo 11m

I wouldn't have suggested buying the 10.5, that's not a great size for florida unless you're pretty heavy or very very light (like 100 lbs). If you're a heavy guy it would be your mid-size kite, a good companion to a 15 or 16m. Good Florida quivers are something like 14-10, 17-11-8, or if you're lig...
