Re: Bolinas!

Was out there Saturday for surfing. It was completely offshore, but the skim looked awesome. The only problem with that place is that there's tons of rocks, and that since it's flat, it's difficult to get enough speed to reach the meat/power of the wave. It would be fun if the winch was on the Stins...

Re: Newb here looking for help.

Looking back on when I first started, this is what I'd recommend as far as learning/progressing: 1. Get comfortable sliding around with the woody 2. Once you have that ^ balance then buy either a used or less expensive board that's still of quality. Also checkout https://www.facebook.com/SquareSkimb...

Re: Bodega conditions thread...

Looks like today and Sunday are pretty alike. Not sure how it will be with the big swell, but if it's good today at wrights then I want to come up tomorrow.

Re: Grip Pads?

^ I saw that a couple years ago, but no matter how many times I've done it or how careful I am it always gets screwed up. Make sure the tail pad is back there pretty far as I see a lot of guys with it way too high up. Since it's kind of tricky, and pretty much permanent once it sticks I'd just get s...

Re: Grip Pads?

I've seen boards with tail pad and arch bar, and boards with arch bars on tail and nose (I think I like that set up better for some reason...) You forgot to mention tail pad on tail & nose (Potter has it like that I think). I would just go with all 3 tailpad, wax, and archbar. Get either a 21" or 3...

Re: Skimboarding school?

Thought about this a while ago. Truthfully I would just make it a "beach theme". One week session, different beach each day. It couldn't be just skimming you'd have to buy some wavestorms and boogie boards etc. The skim would only be "sand/tourist" boarding as I don't see 8 year old's investing in $...

Re: Hike-in skim spots

I was in Santa Cruz when the shark attacked the kayak at Pleasure Point a couple days ago, so it was kind of on my mind when surfing there. Supposedly 7 surfers witnessed a seal get mauled that day as well. Also while watching the lane for a couple hours I saw a grey fin (figured it was a dolphin) b...

Re: Hike-in skim spots

I was talking to my coworker about hiking point reyes today ironically... Should you be worried about sharks at all when skimming out there? They say there are a lot of seals on the shore. Great tread, my wife is into hiking, and I'm into water sports so I'm gonna try to combine both in the same da...

Re: Hike-in skim spots

Yah high tide is best. Depending if it is rocky or not you might want to bring a pair of booties & stronger board. I got the same costco board as Deebo and it's been really fun just fooling around with it there. Last week I was skimming alongside Cowels in SC at mid tide and it was the best skim I'v...

Re: Hike-in skim spots

I've been surfing at Bolinas quite frequently and I'd say the skim has actually been looking pretty dam good around the groin. When it's bigger I usually just surf right in the "rivermouth" and I'm only a couple feet away from the sand. Definitely worth a look if your there. Not sure if it's been do...

Re: Don't hide car keys near car ever.

That sucks, and it's kind of weird that he was only interested in your GoPro which was of course hidden in your glovebox. He must of somehow seen you before with it, and that's what he was going after. If you pull up his name you get this link...http://vivavelella.wordpress.com/2011/11/02/sailingfro...
