Saturday, January 28th, 2017

Donica is the baddest girl on a foil! Loving her smooth glide style. It is so interesting how all the sea creatures seem so interested in our equipment, must be part of the vibes also because we feel like part of the family.

SUP Surfing Dogman 10ft DEEP 2017

Saturday, January 21st, 2017

They say it’s not the size of the boat but the motion of the ocean that matters. Well…at least thats what people with small boats say. See Dogman in motion at the helm of his 10ft DEEP LipStix and know that size really does matter.
Check out the boards here:

“It’ll be a day for the race boards” – Jpoll
How wrong I was… Wind picked up nicely and the runners became steep. I estimated some were around 3ft when the wind and ocean swell lined up.

Nice chill crew on the water with me today, not may people I’d rather paddle with. Fellers, you know who you are. Once again, thanks for the company.

We’ll see you at the next one.

SUP Downwind tip: take the onramp to the freeway

Sunday, January 1st, 2017

Downwind tip: catch the smaller slower moving bumps to connect into the bigger, faster moving swells. I first heard Guy Pere use this great analogy: find and use an “onramp” to the build the speed you need to merge onto the “freeway”. As you come off the faster moving swells, look for an “offramp”, a smaller bump that will keep your speed up as you come off the back of a bigger swell, which allows you to maintain the glide and look for another faster moving “freeway” to merge onto. Just like when you have to merge into fast moving traffic, you need to accelerate first on the onramp to be able to pull into the fast moving traffic. On our Hawaii Kai SUP downwind runs, the offshore winds create slower moving, shorter fetch close period bumps that move to the left- the onramps. Longer period windswells and open ocean swells move to the right and move too fast to catch without building momentum of the onramps. It’s hard to get long rides on the freeways but the speed from those faster moving bumps are the reason why the fastest guys are so fast on downwinders.
I hope you enjoyed this Stand Up paddle downwind tip on connecting bumps, please give us a thumbs up and subscribe to our channel for new videos posted on a weekly basis.
