    Happy Thanksgiving to you all! May you have a day filled with fun, gratitude, relaxation, and…food. Great food. Enjoy every single bite. I tend to have Thanksgiving be a splurge day, and I eat pretty much anything and everything that’s up for grabs, figure out a way to have stuffing in each bite, and wake up wishing I could just eat the pecan pie for breakfast. I must confess that I also totally kick my butt in the gym the day before, and go on a run the morning of my beloved feast. It makes smothering every single bite that I can in gravy, just that more enjoyable. Life and fitness is…

    One of my favorite memories of Christmas as a child was waking up early, sneaking down the stairs to open presents, and staying in my pajamas all day long showing off my new toys to the neighborhood kids. Unfortunately some people grow out of some of these magical moments when they become an adult. Don’t let this happen to you, staying in your pajamas all day long is not only a possibility it’s super stylish … yes stylish. On my recent trip to the mountains I made wearing pajamas out of the house the coolest winter outfit yet. This Tallow onsie has so many uses: wear it to bed,…

    Albee Layer recently made a movie. Called Attractive Distractions, and amazing. Want proof? Here’s a new Tiger VS Bear featuring Albee and his dear friend Matt Meola. The duo goes air for air in two of our favorite clips in the movie. Meola’s is a springy, kind-of-almost-backflip rotation which he sticks ever so cleanly. Albee’s is a double alley-oop — a full 360 if you will. The spin is wild and the landing is perfect. Two fine punts, one place for you to vote. And after you do, buy Attractive Distractions here.

    Months back, Paul Fisher introduced the world to the first ever dick surfboard. And no, dick doesn’t have some sort of other meaning here — we’re literally talking about a surfboard shaped like a penis. Now it’s one thing to go out and ask your sponsor (in this case, SUPER) to shape you a dick board and actually surf the dick board well. Low-brow? Sure. Hilarious? Definitely. But it’s a whole ‘nother animal to make a video like this. Here we see Fisher mocking some facades of modern surf culture and you literally cannot help but laugh. Then, inevitably, Fisher…

    Everyone ponders pulling the rip cord and escaping the rat race at some point. It’s a natural human impulse. Yet very few have the courage to follow through with the urge. Among the many mental barriers to overcome is figuring out where else to go. Will Brady remembers the feeling. But roughly 30 years ago he made the case for southern Oregon to his high school sweetheart, Liz, and fortunately, she was willing to give it a try. Her first experience with this pristine coastline did the rest of the persuading. Will took her to several of the isolated beaches he found while in college,…

This is when the North Sea glows and the pilgrimage begins.” Credits: A Northcore Film By- Chris McClean…

  • Safety Lasso for Inflatable SUPs

    Rob Casey - SUP Instructor, Photographer & Guidebook Writer
    24 Nov 2014 | 7:02 pm
    Having difficult climbing back on your 6-8" thick inflatable SUP?  We've seen this as a problem, especially for those who have little upper body strength or are under 5'-5", especially on boards 32" or wider.  Thick race boards are also an issue. Even a flip rescue can be difficult as inflatables are slippery and race boards sometimes have carved out decks with rigid raised rails which are uncomfortable to climb over.Here's two solutions to try:Stirrup Strap - Use the following North Water U-Link or fashion your own to attach one end to a clip or D-Ring on your board…
  • 7 Tips for Keeping a Paddling Biz Open in Winter

    Rob Casey - SUP Instructor, Photographer & Guidebook Writer
    7 Nov 2014 | 5:14 pm
    Most paddling and surfing shops here in the Pacific NW have either shut down for the winter or are on limited hours.  Now that its getting dark at 5pm, it's impossible to hold evening classes. But when there is daylight, many experienced paddlers are still going.  Seeing this a few years ago I realized I may be able to convince my students to continue their paddling 'season' throughout the year.  I have to do a lot of convincing but when they see the light per se, they're hooked on off season paddling.  Obviously if you're in some places in North America or otherwise,…
  • Cool Deck Bag for SUPs or Kayaks

    Rob Casey - SUP Instructor, Photographer & Guidebook Writer
    6 Nov 2014 | 12:30 pm
    Most SUP'ers get into the sport because they want to do things simply. Many paddlers we see have a board, paddle and bikini or swimming trunks, not much else.  But the Pacific Northwest packs a surprise every sunny summer afternoon. At noon or sometime thereafter the high pressure rolls in creating a strong North wind.  In a few hours the fetch has created waves up to waist high. If you fall in, which most do lacking skills, the wind will make you chilly. Solution? You can put bungies on your board and stuff in a synthetic warm layer or rash guard, or get a deck bag.  Deck bags…

    4 Nov 2014 | 6:26 pm
    In late summer, I asked my neighbor Todd, a Werner/Jackson pro kayak fisherman and kayak/sup repair guy, to cut the top off my $4k sea kayak.  Focused mainly on sup since 2010, I've been wanting to take the kayak out but haven't kept my eskimo rolling skills up to par.  Generally not an issue but I like rough water, so it's essential to have good self rescue skills. Unlike a SUP, you can't just jump back on a closed deck kayak - or at least I can't having long legs at 6'-5". Long story, Todd agreed and the cockpit top was removed by the time we got back from dinner.  Todd…

Occasionally those broken promises are redeemed and all the elements combine gracing us with pristine lines of energy sculpted by offshore wind, reef and blessed by sunshine. This is when the North Sea glows and the pilgrimage begins.” Credits: A Northcore Film By- Chris McClean…

    If you are reading this on Thursday night, then you can be sure that Stephanie Gilmore is simultaneously having an epic dance off with Lakey Peterson and some of the other girls on the ASP World Tour. Earlier in the day, Gilmore claimed her 6th World Title after a close race between Sally Fitzgibbons, Tyler Wright and herself, which has provided a reason to crank up the music, get the drinks flowing and party late into the night. With the World Title race coming down to the final event of the season in Maui, I was happy to see that the event experienced favorable surfing conditions that…

Steph Gilmore, Tyler Wright and Sally Fitzgibbons are all in the running for the world title and its a very close race with a lot of potential scenarios and outcomes.

    While it's always cool to work with fellow surfers and you best bro's from way back when, I think it is possible that it is holding back each webcast's potential. Especially since many from the current commentary and broadcast team lack formal broadcast or commentating experience. Sure, it's nice to have commentators who have backgrounds in professional surfing who can articulate some of the finer details during a contest, but it needs to be matched with some seasoned veterans as well to create a nice balance. That's why I think it could be extremely beneficial to add some experienced…

    Getting wet as you go through surf during a winter paddle can be a headache. Clothing decisions are always a trade off between freezing at the start of your paddle and being comfortable later in your paddle vs.  being comfortable through the surf but being too hot later in your workout. If you live in an area like San Diego (like we do) the problem is compounded further because the water can be chilly/cold while the air is warm. The problem is compounded even further if you are a prone paddleboarder because, ideally (at least in our experience) wearing a wetsuit can be restricting.  As…
  • The subtle art of paddle position. Paddling nuance for SUP and prone paddlers

    image used with permission by Flux Photography Most paddlers know they need to be concerned with paddle technique to improve their efficiency and reduce injury. What is often lost in the discussion of paddle technique is the subtle art of board position. Paddling, like other sports such as martial arts, golf, and surfing is a sport where nuanced and subtle moves can result in huge changes in performance. One of these micromoves is your position (e.g. where you stand, lie, or kneel) on a paddleboard. A few centimeters too far forward or too far back could mean all the difference in your paddle…

It has become frustrating because it slows me down, and even stops me at times while on my training paddles, and I am training for my first Catalina Classic for the 2015 year.  I would be bummed if something like that stopped me.
