    Sweet! It would definitely be nice to be right on the water, going to start looking into parks.
  2. Much appreciated as always!

    Much appreciated as always!

    Would like to check that area out, need to look into cheap camping options even if inland a ways. What about Jan/Feb? Might be after the holidays before I can hit the road.
  4. Haven't been on the forums for quite some time,...

    Haven't been on the forums for quite some time, been biking my brains out. Meniscus issue is some weird "rent" as the surgeon called it, in my meniscus wherein it folds in upon itself and gets wedged...

    Thanks Hellgate.

    Looks like I have a torn meniscus so waiting to consult to see if surgery will be necessary. That knee has been a problem since the 1980s so maybe it's time to deal with it, lol.

    Haven't been out on the water lately, it's hard to load up and drive out to the lake when I can get a great MTB ride in from the house. I have decided to oversee a field work project through November...

    That makes sense, this one won't pop out easy now that's for sure, ha.

    Lol, not too much to handle, unless there are more than 3 in the camper at a time. :fmicon:

    Plug mount is solid. It appears they mainly epoxied the bottom of the plug, maybe that was for easier...

    I have been mountain biking a lot lately and neglecting my fin plug repair. But I got it taken care of yesterday. I kept putting off a run to the hardware store for epoxy since I ran out the other...

    Yeah, I'm definitely not worried about a small amount of urea in the gray water tank. Maybe the smell of the suit is the concern....

    I will have my camp trailer which has a shower with a nice skylight, should be perfect for hanging/drying. I like the warm water trick!

    Yes, will shoot you a p.m. but I don't recall if you can access those right away as a new member.
    edit: looks like I can't p.m. you yet until you get a higher post count

    I have them on craigslist...

    Ya, it's a kook barge, and definitely appreciate all the good input you have provided in this thread.

    Epoxy resin is their suggestion. It looks just like the picture I posted earlier, figure 8 of foam in line with the plastic surface piece so I think your right Ottime, it was probably not installed...

    Is it really that complicated? I mean the plug is intact and fits flush and firm back into the opening it just needs sealed properly without dissolving the foam. It doesn't seem like rocket surgery...

    Yes. I have an email into the company I bought it from on how to proceed but haven't heard back yet. I will give them a call tomorrow if I don't hear back. My fault, just want their input on how to...

    Your suggestions helped on paddling Ottime. I also found tracking was easier with my legs lifted slightly off the board for some reason, but my core is still too wimpy to hold that for very long,...

    There are occasional waves if a larger boat passes nearby. I try to avoid them as much as I can. I have had a couple of annoying encounters in my kayak with boaters not really paying attention to...

    I'm embracing my inner kook, ha. Ya, I'm sure waves would help a lot. Great advice, thanks!

    Thanks Ottime

    Much better success with the wetsuit today by being a little more patient. Plus just getting the hang of how to contort my body has helped. Paddling stamina wasn't great, seemed to...

    Thanks guys,
    Been rinsing and hanging folded over in my shower stall with the fan on or window open to dehumidify. I found about the bread bag trick and was using that, helps a lot! The issue in the...

    Got another paddle in yesterday, it's already feeling a little more efficient and I realized that I was paddling with the nose too high, much more efficient once I moved forward and put it a couple...

    Thanks, I did work on sitting/spinning some but suck at it so needs a lot of work still. Inside of both thighs are a little bruised and sore. The board kept wanting to twist with the rail flipping...

    Thanks nortonwhis,
    I got out and paddles my board around a large windy lake yesterday. Boy howdy, do I need to work my shoulders and chicken wings, I tired out pretty damn quick, ha. Not quite like...

    Yeah, the whole C19 thing is going to require adjustments on the fly probably and good points on Mexico. My plan right now is to take a couple lessons somewhere and try to camp in an RV park, state...

    Received an O'Neill Epic 3/2 yesterday in a Medium/Tall. I watched a lot of fit videos to make sure the fit is right. The fit is great throughout except arm and leg cuffs which are a little long. I...

    I do appreciate the advice, mostly went with the shorter one based on their recommendation. And I'm thinking at least two months now and maybe a lifetime. If I really get into it, I may end up...

    Thanks, I saw a few others that were a little sleeker, but the shipping was over half the cost of the board in some cases. I really want to get out on it a little and start working those shoulders...

    Hmm, that's what they recommended for a 6' 165# rider over the 8' 8" Heritage. It gets a lot of good reviews from beginners heavier than me, 74L of volume. It's a start I guess and will see how it...

    I have a floaty barge showing up this Friday (South Bay Board Co - 8' Verve). I'm looking forward to getting it out on open water here just to get a feel for paddling, standing up, etc. Hopefully...

    Great, thanks. I need to start looking to find a spot to park the RV and plan lesson locations around that probably. Are you talking pay campgrounds or just places to park and not get hassled by the...

    Yea, a little hard to be stealthy with an F150 and camper, ha. A short commute wouldn't be terrible. Saw that thread right after I posted the question, my bad.

    Now I'm trying to decide if I even...

    The general consensus from what I am reading is that I should be starting on a ~ 9.5' longboard. Any reason to veer from this advice if I want something I can grow into that isn't too difficult to...

    Good to know on factories and eyewear, will skip that. The more I get stoked reading, watching surf videos, etc. I can't imagine that i'm not going to enjoy learning and getting better. So the plan...

    That's awesome, I may very well take you up on that Ottime. Will pm as time gets closer. Yea, I had heard to avoid used suits so will look for a new 3 or 3/2 probably around $100ish.

    Also, I can't get past the concern of messing up my aging eyes with all that UV, sand, wind, salt, etc. Yet I rarely see surfers wearing eye protection. I'm sure it can be a PIA given continual...
