Re: Sess'n Sunday 10:30am at the Gray Whale

I'm digging this vibe. If anyone's interested I'll be headed out to the Bodega Bay area this coming Sunday. Hope this mellow south swell keeps up.

Re: Snowboading Mendocino National Forest Video

Just stopped in after a 6month+ cramik-less stint and this is what I find!! That's got to be the coolest thing I've seen on this site. Props for doing that solo too, but if you're ever going again, I'm in. Goes to show skimboarders can lead varied and interesting lives, and I'm glad you saw fit to s...

That was super duper awesome footage, and also BRMC is one of my favorite bands. Basically my last four minutes were just general goodness.

Re: what the hell is the science behind sideslipping?

From what I understand: While the rocker gives a board it's characteristic handling capabilities, it slows the board down when planing. People sideslip in order to present a uniform, relatively flat surface to the water, thus reducing drag. One sideslips (turning the board sideways) because the midd...

Re: Do any skimboards have a stringer?

Very interesting. It's not surprising that there is more than tradition that plays into (most) modern stringer-less skimboard production (with the exception of maui's). The effect of higher force on a thinner material is one difference between skimboards and surfboards that had never adequately cros...

Re: Do any skimboards have a stringer?

I suppose this relegates maui skimmers to the dustbin of sub-par materials and construction

Re: Vintage pics

I'm not old enough to have any of this vintage stuff, but I love seeing all those old pictures. It reminds me that people skimmed long before all the carbon boards and traction and whatnot. Where there's a will there's a way.

Re: cramik cup

I think this is one of the best ideas brought up on here in a long time. This type of organization I think would go a long way to benefit the norcal skim community as a whole in order to bring the tons of people that live here a little closer and also to provide prospective visitors some incentive t...

That dental floss trick is genius! Plus I hear the mint stuff really protects your ankle from gingivitis.

Re: glue for wetsuits seams

It's pretty stretchy when its dry, should work pretty well on the ankle. The excess from my repair is on the inside of my suit against my skin and i don't even notice it. I think it should hold two sides of a seam together fine, as long as they are close enough to hang naturally next to each other w...

Re: glue for wetsuits seams

Not to shamelessly advertise, but I only have experience with one wetsuit repair product and I am very happy with it. I bought a can of "Block Surf" neoprene cement to repair a hole in mine about six months ago and the repair i made looks just as good now as the day I made it. In talking to my old c...

Re: X-mas skim?

I would love to go out the day after Xmas. From what I remember I think you live in Rohnert Park, and since I live in Cotati maybe we could carpool?

Rohnert Park/ Santa Rosa people?

Hey, I'm looking for a ride out to skim. I live in Cotati (right next to Rohnert Park) but I don't have a car to go out. Hopefully someone on this site lives near there.

Tell whoever that is to post on here because like I said, I'm leaving from my school for Santa Rosa Saturday afternoon, and I'm not bringing it with me unless someone wants to buy it
