Re: WOO 3.0 pre-order

Polar M600, Android smartwatch. Ugly as sin but IP68 and band is designed with watch housing that fits in from the back and can't pop out or break, so you're confident it will stay on in the water. I found one used on eBay for $120. The reason Android smartwatches are inferior to Apple watches is b/...

What are the bolt rings , are you talking about the washers on the fin screws?

Use nylon washers, or stainless steel.
Sorry... updated to screw inserts, I believe that's the correct terminology.

Re: Sand / water / aqua socks to wear inside boots

wow... this is excellent. I agree, socks in boots is a disaster. so the most portable with protection is probably the way to go. Separately, the Hyperlite and Shredtowns sound excellent, but expensive. Also worried they are too far elevated off the board, but know for sure. My Ronix lines are a nigh...

I don't want them, but only a matter of time until I have to navigate ragged rocks and barnacles after a technical failure or twisted kite. I do have a little pouch I ...
