Someone posted an alibaba link and I got sucked in. Here's that camping shower I'm using. Looks like you can get it for $12 bucks, not sure what shipping would be. I like it. I did have to add a couple zip ties to keep the tubes on tight.

A guy I foil with posted up his tracking numbers from the other day. These are typical for foiling spots here on Maui, probably close to others on the mainland.

22 waves in 2 hours
Paddled 3.6 miles
Longest wave 321 yards

And these are waist to chest hi waves, think about your fitness level if you did this everyday. I hope someone does some heart rate overlay stats sometime. You're doing ALOT of cardio on those long ones. bowdown

Never will I ever track my waves with an electronic device.

I would rather beat off, play the guitar, and snort opiates.

I guess it takes all kinds.

My brother gave me a GPS watch, it was kind of fun. I'm surprised it's only a 15 MPH top speed. I'd assume you'd hit 20 pretty easily on the foil.

so heres the secret hdip....since youre getting kinda good on that thing...

4 foot tide and higher...malibu is THE place to be...

2nd point to the end of the wall is easily doable on a foil

if you can pump back out and get a 2 for 1 then 3rd to the wall is doable...easy...

theres a pretty solid group of us now that foil regular at the high tides there...Sarlo, Andy, Keola, Jesse, Swen....pretty much it....you should jion us because you good now and can control it....couple guys showed up in july getting catapulted all over the place....they were told A'ole....boy you no can!...go away...maybe you come back next summer

2nd to the wall is a loooooong run over half a mile ....easy....2800 feet

and if you can pump you get to the sand ....pick up the backwash....and JAM back out to sea!....all the way out level with the end of the pier

friken GOOD FUN!!!



quit yer bitching...just get out there and...RUN WHAT YA BRUNG!!!

But I've had a moratorium on "Malibu" for over 15 years now. Well I've been a couple times in the last year with my 4 year old, only because his cousins were there, but I didn't even bring a board. I can see how that'd be a good spot though. We'll see. I hate crowds. I surfed zuma today and had to get out and walk up the beach twice today because I couldn't stand sitting next to people.

I got a foil to get away from people, not to go to the most crowded spot around. Maybe at the high tide it would be OK though.

Also I foiled a spot all by myself yesterday, for 20 minutes til I was joined by one surfer. Then after an hour a SUP came out and was asking me all about it. I think we'll see a lot more foils next year.

Then you can say, "Foiled again!"

Don't think I don't use that joke regularly when my brother asks me where I surfed that day.

No no no you're doing this on a two foot wave ....for real ...you know hiw we do...we're not even going for the same waves as everybody else it's like your owns surf spot in the middle of a surf spot... they can't even think about the waves that we ride... That's what's so much fun about it everybody is sitting sitting in pretty much flat water and we just blasting all over the place... It's like you're 16 all over again....and that littye bay between 1st and kiddie bowls in front of adamson house where you paddle out is the best part of all....

sit at the top of 1st point...paddle for the set and yelll...go Go GO!...take the right....im going LEFT!

going left at malibu...awesome!

Good Stuff Hdip and Kaser1.

Got my first injury on the foil, went over the handlebars on my first wave trying to correct on the takeoff. Took the front wing between the chest and shoulder and bounced an elbow off the mast. Luckily wearing a wetsuit top which kept me from getting cut, nasty bruise on my chest and sore elbow.

I've gone over the bars a few times, first instinct is ball up and cover your head and go deep.

Got cute yesterday doin a floater over the foamball and went in alittle off balance and paid the price...almost. Board flipped under me and the front wing near missed my mouth. Lifted my shoulder and turned my head, all seemed in slow motion, out of a movie. tomato

I dont think I ever will either. I'd rather pay someone to record a video from shore.

Its kinda cool to do Runtastic on the Snowboard setting when we're riding the mountain though..??.. Although my wife handles that and Id' probably never do it either.

Scariest wipeouts I've had are going over the falls and trying to kick the foil out in front of you but it's falling at the same rate and it looks like you're going to land on the back wing.
