Maui Maliko Run Summer Downwind Fun

Monday, August 7th, 2017

The summer trades on Maui have been epic and we’ve had some unusual ground swell, making for super fun Maliko Runs. This was shot yesterday August 5th, 2017 and if you like BIG glides and BIG music and a splash of humor, you’ll love my video.

My long time good friend, Bill Hofmann and I have seen it all together and have paddled winter mountains of water on Maliko. It’s no joke out there and of course the camera ( special top secret GoPro mount ), never really shows the trued size of the swells, but it’s still cool.

This day the swells were topping out in the 6-7ft range but the extremely high tide with the full moon, made for silky smooth glides that connected forever. The wind was gusting up to 35mph, and a steady 25-30mph.

I hope you’ll comment and share the stoke. Be safe out there and where your leash, bring hydration and phone and/or personal beacon.

2018 Starboard Ace

Friday, August 4th, 2017

When there’s chop, you need pop. With the new improved nose shape this board just wants to keep going and going, the added volume allows the board to pop through chop whilst hammering upwind, prevent pitched when downwinding and also gives you super easy catching ability for any bump.

The heightened sidewalls allow for more grip on the waves, less rolling and less splash into the cockpit. On the top of those sidewalls we’ve also added more beach hand mounts to make the board easier for beach starts. The inside tail of the board has been widened with more dug-out rails, this creates more room for your back foot when buoy turning and surfing. The board has been made with a lighter highest grade Biaxial carbon technology, combined with pigment infused resin this is the fastest and lightest Ace ever.

Meet Travis Grant’s M2O winning board from NSP

Sunday, July 30th, 2017

Please subscribe to Distressed Mullet TV here on Youtube by clicking the SUBSCRIBE above.

In this video, DC (Dale Chapman) and Chris Chamberlain walk us through Travis Grant’s Molokai 2 Oahu-winning stand up paddle board, the first unlimited production board to win the M2O.
DC is the shaper and was also on Travis’ support boat for the 5+ hours across the M2O’s Channel of Bones.

Travis’ Board Dimensions:

17’10” x 24.5″ wide unlimited board was designed by Travis Grant and Alain Teurquetil and shaped by DC for NSP. It has a progressive rocker, designed to get up and over the waves, with edge on the rail through the back and rounded more forgiving rails throughout (rolled bottom that Travis likes from his OC-1 background). There are no concaves.

There’s a super interesting section where they discuss Travis’ decision to take two waves into the finish on a board of this size.

Marcus Tardrew SUP racer designer downwind on his 18ft Sunova Dugout

Wednesday, July 12th, 2017

“The dimensions on this one are 18×24.3. It was our first prototype.
They will be available and some shops are starting to order them so they will start popping up. The standard sizes are 24, 25.5 and 27. All 18 long.
Yes it is foot steering.
No you really don’t need to move back on this board as much as other unlimiteds but it’s very different to any other unlimited as you can see.”

SUP Surfing Progression: How To Ride a Low Volume board

Sunday, July 9th, 2017

Want to take your SUP surfing to the next level? If so, you’ll probably be looking to lose some volume in your next board. While providing close to shortboard levels of agility once you are on a wave, low volume SUPs are not exactly the easiest things to paddle around on. In this video, the Blue Planet Team provide a few pointers and also a few reasons why one would ride a small Stand Up Surfboard.

Stand up paddle boarding – The Flip Rescue

Sunday, June 25th, 2017

Stand up paddle boarding – The Flip Rescue (Board to Board)
The flip rescue is to pull a stand up paddler out of the water who can’t do so themselves usually do fatigue.

The rescue comes from the raft industry. It also works for pulling swimmers or flipped kayak/canoeists onto your board.

The shown method is for stand up paddlers to pull another stand up paddler out of the water. If practice often, it can be completed in rough water in less than a minute. I’ve done it in whirlpools for a fatigued student at Deception Pass in Washington State.

How to..
– Paddle your board over to the capsized paddler.
– Ask if they’re cold, how long they’ve bee in the water
– While doing so, flip their board fin up. Easiest to do so with two hands at the tail.
– Climb on your knees from your board to theirs using your paddle as a brace across both
– Pull the victim in and have them face you in the Middle of their board
– Drop both paddles in the water between the victim and their board
– Ask them to cross their arms, then grab their hands (not wrists)
– While doing so, stand up on their board and step their opposite rail.
– Kick your board back (should be on leash)
– Then fall back into the water.
– Once they’re their board, move to towards their tail (same side) and reaching over their board, pull their legs on
– Get back on your board and tow or push with your board (nose to tail) them back to shore. Call for 911 or the CG on channel 16 if you’re unable to reach shore to prevent hypothermia or to properly perform CPR.
**Practice often to do the flip under a minute and be open to them falling back off, or having to find a Plan B solution. When you tow or push them to shore, ask the victim to lie prone (chest) or sit to prevent from falling off again.
**Always wear your PFD and leash to stay off the news.
