Their going to be hard pressed to even make it. They pushed off from the beach at 930 with not enough wind to blow out a match, they will be bobbing for apples until noon, and then the wind probably will not reach 15mph, so these suckers are crumbs for the asian carp.

Actually, he was potentially saving an injury from happening to those pilgrim beachcombers, he removed a shrapnel of glass from a spent bottle of spotted cow with his swashbuckling, devil-may-care "grab n' go transition.

I guess my 2 cents would have injected an "orange peel" or fish scale effect on the board to give it a textural quality and then understate the billboard name by outlining the tips with the name or some kind of half moon with the name.....just makes for a better presentation on the board-off shots a...

Probably the number one reason is panic. It is quite normal to freak out when your tangled in weeds or find yourself struggling for a breath. You become frantic and your reflexes start behaving spasmodically, this only accelerates your demise. Even if your short of breath you do have to relax and re...

Now, helmets are the vogue thing for biking, skiing, and any other activity where you reach speeds above a crawl. Skiing is probably the best evolution of the hard hat. In one season, you had sonny...

I guess that was my query, would graphics justify the time/cost benefits. The board is distinctive and performance will most always win out over a pretty picture. And, something can be said for having a loud exclamation when one is searching for his ride. But, it would seem to this observer that you...

Those boards do have a refined approach about them, very nice, indeed. Why dont you do more with the graphic end; for such a finely tuned stix it would seem your marketing efforts would be boosted ten fold with some stealth-like visual allure.....

I still dont understand why we dont all carry radios or some sort of flotation device.
Most people take out their cell in a waterproof bag, that is really all you need if an emergency arises.

They do make vests for protection around the ribs and for flotation. You can always modify the usual pfd for kiting and to accommodate the harness. And, you can always wear a pair of "floaties" to provide wings for your ride.
