Complete Tear ACL

I had it done after a player tackled me from behind playing soccer. My legs were very strong, but I did not want the extra stress put on other parts of my knee. I believe getting it fixed was the right decision. I have averaged 3+ soccer games a week for the last 18 years since the surgery. Probably...

Re: Woo 3.0 and iWatch 3?

I tested Woo 3.0 with Android watch and it is unusable on water. Any splash of water causes watch to exit Woo app and go to a Clock screen. I think watch treats it as a "palm gesture". In short, it works OK as long as you never fall :naughty: Here is a short video demonstrating the problem: [youtub...

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

BTW I think this topic is completely appropriate for this forum for many reasons, but the main one: Rising sea level can be viewed as the future Number 1 Access Limitation that faces the sport. Beach already skinny? Try adding more water and see if that helps. Anybody enjoy launching directly out o...

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

This is a stressful read to me. There are an incredible amount of weird claims and assertions here. If we agree that science is our best bet at understanding the world, then why not just follow the scientific facts on this? A huge consensus of actual experts say we influence the environment in a ne...

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

So you can afford to pay an additional $500 on top of your vacation costs to assuage your guilt over contributing to global warming. It seems that every hand wringing solution to Anthropomorphic Global Warming is one that widens the divide from the haves from the have nots. Each solution makes energ...

Re: Are there foot hooks that don't %*-"@! break?

Lots of interesting alternative approaches posted here.

Pics would really help. Please post pics of your ideas

Also specifications such as what size PVC pipe. I see one example looks like it is gray which is schedule 80 and one white example which is schedule 40.

Re: Vacuum pressure for sucking water out of a surfboard?

If you have a vacuum pump, then you need an intermediate reservoir to regulate the vacuum and collect the water. I have made a reservoir out of an old kite pump with a valve and a vacuum gauge http://i156.photobucket.com/albums/t28/bertas_photo/Board%20Repair/DSC_0111_zps0ab6825a.jpg The tube that ...

Re: Vacuum pressure for sucking water out of a surfboard?

thx for the suggestions. It seems easier. Per the Board Lady, https://boardlady.com the water will not exit the board by gravity alone. I am assuming you are stating that once you cant see the water coming out if the hole that is good enough and I should just repair it at that time.

Vacuum pressure for sucking water out of a surfboard?

I am putting a vacuum set up together to extracting water from a surfboard. I am copying the Board Ladys setup. https://boardlady.com/vacuum.htm I have read that you can use too much vacuum pressure and ruin a board. I have a 1/3 HP vacuum that pulls at 3CFM. How do I regulate the vacuum pressure so...
