weak post

That's what I feel this is going to be...

One more of those SUP surfing videos... you guys seen plenty already. Maybe I should use some different shorts!
But I'm sure somebody will still appreciate it, specially if sitting in an office...
Next one, I promise, will be in bigger waves. Hopefully soon!

Sitting in the office....sure rub it in....

I didn't manage to get out at all today. Had plans to hit the water that got foiled by the dirtiest of 4 letter words....work.

GC.. I see you're using a wooden paddle. What are the specs, blade size, length, etc..? Any changes you'ld make if you were going to make one?

I figure I'll make you one someday just as a thanks for getting my mind off of work once in awhile...:)

Hi Bob,

here's the only spec of my paddle that I know: one shaka sign and a half taller than me...

I wouldn't change anything in it. It's a beautiful piece of art made by local master craftsman Malama who shaped also my canoe paddle.

Seems everyone that has one of Malama's paddles says its like magic. Great to hear true craftsman still live.

Building paddles is something new to me, as is SUP, but just like SUP, I think the bug is in deep.

I've only built two......OK, don't laugh. I know I'll never have the mojo built in that Malama's have. These two are pretty but that's about it.

Hopefully by the time I plan on coming back to the island I'll have something worthy of performance and the wall. Just in case the beer is on me too...:)

I've seen you a couple of times around Paia pre-sup addiction (mine that is). So I'd put your paddle length at 79-80"?

Thanks again for a great blog. If I told my friends that I was getting to know some italian guys ankles very well via the web do you think they would consider me odd?
