Re: KB on Lake Champlain-Burlington

There has to be a spot or two around Burlington, but Plattsburgh (Cumberland head) can be really epic. This spot works with a south or south south east. When it comes from the south and sunny you usually get a thermal, so add 10 knots to the base forecast. I almost always go when it coming from the ...

Re: How many winters does your wetsuit last?

Funny I have a 2013 O'neill psychofreak 4.5/3.5 and really love it, it's super warm. I use it 15-30 times a year and it's still in pretty good shape. The liquid welds are cracking in some areas and started to leak in some areas, like the groin, but not enough flush to buy a new suit. A matter of fac...

Re: The lightest snappiest surfboard for overhead waves?

Ha this can go on and on...everyone got their fav and there is no right answer. What I can confirm is that the Airush active carbon are very light and super strong. My cousin has the 2013 compact in this construction and while some paint chipped off it is still pretty much perfect and he rides it ha...

Can you post a pic?

Fin size

I've ordered up a new surfboard. It comes naked. So I need to get some fins. It will be a quad set up. And I'm going more for speed control, so will be flat foil...etc Anyways, I was just going to go with a medium size, but I realize that I'm not sure whether I should be going bigger or smaller. In ...

Re: Don't show us your hook

FYI. I picked up a harken low friction ring at my local sail shop. Cost was like 30 $ Canadian without tax. The size is 20mm and 14mm thick. IMG_7649.JPG It is incredibly smooth, as smooth as a pulley I would say. I actually would prefer a little resistance as its slides across. Purpose of using the...

Re: DSD Stallion 5'4 - anyone rode it?

As I understand the stallion is more like the Vader. Both boards have lot of rocker. I've never used a vanguard, but more than one person has told me it's bouncy in chop, so it was immediately a no go for me and my bad knee. But I have tried a Vader 5 3, which was set up as a thruster and I was impr...

Re: DSD Stallion 5'4 - anyone rode it?

I rode my buddies 5 2 the other day, lake chop and small waves, 25-35 kts (a couple of gusts into the 40s) Holy moly, I have to say I was really impressed with board. I have a bad knee so I'm sensitive to a board the bounces through chop, but this board was the boss. I think it's the smoothest surfb...

Re: where can I get Dyneema ribbon/webbing (like Airush load Frame)

I don't know where you can get it, but the material is called Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE, UHMW) so search for that. I can't help but think that any webbing you find is going to be massively over specced for use in a harness. Thanks! this is exactly what I was looking for. My p...
