    Anyone ride trails when the surf is flat?

    I weigh 225 and run 26psi rear 24psi front with 2.5" tires tubeless on 29" wheels for my enduro e-bike and similar pressure on my acoustic hardtail (a couple more psi due to 27.5" wheels). A few of my bigger buddies use Cush Core and run slightly lower pressure. The new, wider rims allow one...

    Anyone ride trails when the surf is flat?

    X3 on Pinkbike classified, there are a ton of really good used bikes on there right now, just google the reviews on the specific models. Indeed 1x12 is really nice & the dropper posts are a must. I would plan on going over budget as opposed to trying to save a few $$ because quality components...

    The Great Delusion

    Yeah, that was my 1st choice mainly because it has the Bosch motor. However I got the Pivot for a stupid-good price that was a one-time offer so I had to jump on it.

    Selling a classic car in Hawaii (Big Island)

    Dad passed away this summer so my brother and I are trying to help mom sell his 56 Pontiac Chieftain 2 door wagon. If it were on the mainland it would be no problem but it is in Hilo so options are limited (it’s the orange/white one that used to cruise town for anyone living there). Its not...

    Big Island recommendations?

    There were no waves on my last trip so I spent a lot of time swimming at both Carlsmith and Richardson Beach parks. Poke at Suisan is pretty tasty. Even when its small Honoli'i has longboard waves

    OCCY 1989

    It was trippy to see him with a deck pad in those 1st clips, let alone the front traction.

    HIC live video?

    I found a link but it seems sketchy. It's pretty sad considering that Haliewa is one of the most enjoyable contest venues to watch.

    At what point is it ok to take a dump in your wetsuit?

    True, I kinda got off track in regards to the thread title. However, I have seen a few locals wear 2mm fullsuits in the morning when the rivers are flowing strong down into the rivermouths near Hilo.

    Going to try and just spend time with him. Ask him to tell me stories. Yes, this so much. I just went through a similar situation 2 months ago and feel your pain, your post brought back some emotions. Drop what you can and visit ASAP for as long as you can. I was lucky because I can work...

    Spray vs. Technique

    Before Parko won his title some felt he was getting underscored because it looked "too smooth". I recall it being said (possibly by him) that he needed to "dirty it up a bit" to show the effort he was putting into his surfing.

    Spray vs. Technique

    This could be an oversimplification but I would say it often depends on the level of competition and distance from judges to the waves being ridden In a local contest without any replay and the judges are a couple hundred yards away then throwing spray is definitely gonna get you some scores...
