Latest Downwind Video

OK, so its not wintertime Maliko, and its standup, but it was partially shot from my canoe, and most important its downwind. Not bad for the middle of the Arizona desert. There's two main runs in the lake, a four miler and a 13 miler.

or on YouTube as long as they don't delete the soundtrack

OCP definitely figures in the jibofo/debmaui story. Its a pretty funny story.

Rambo, The posting started as a "horror story", then Jibofo jumped in and it started to become a "funny story", continuing to meeting at the end of the Na Wahine O Ke Kai; "a love story", it's the "never ending story" a great story...... that all started on OCP!

Yeah, I think that was filmed here. I recognize some of the breaks.

#8 Wed, 02/24/2010 - 4:46pm

Looks like fun. What board was that?

#9 Wed, 02/24/2010 - 5:42pm

That is a great story and tribute to OC Paddler and the online community. I am very happy for you.

It is especially funny, since when I originally saw your responses to my "808propertymanager" posts--

I thought you were subliminally trying to hit on me-because you were so obsessed ;) with what I wrote.

I guess JiBofo sent some pretty impressive private messages.

Yeah, Jibofo/Deb, i remember the property posts...hahah. How very chivalrous of you Jibofo, to stand up for a young lady's honor............ May I propose a toast to the new couple.,,,,,cheers.

Board is a Naish Glide 14' x 27". It goes pretty good but I think it would be even better with less nose rocker and more of a displacement entry like the S.I.C F-16 and F-18.
Yeah I'm a chivalrous kind of guy.

#13 Thu, 02/25/2010 - 11:49am


Yer right on about the nose rocker ... and sounds like the people you like to have around you : )


#14 Thu, 02/25/2010 - 2:05pm

we've also sup this run on a Hovie SUP 10'10", Starboard SUP 15', and the Naish 14'. ALL fun in the perfect condition for the board. live to paddle but paddle to live!!!!!

#15 Thu, 02/25/2010 - 4:18pm

Hey, if you have the video please show it ... nice to see the different boards running with at least one constant.

Did you guys ever try out the Hobie 12'6" race board ???

Just wondering.

#16 Thu, 02/25/2010 - 5:15pm

Didn't have the cameras on the other boards. The Starboard K-15 is real fast in mild conditions but the rounded bottom and soft rails can make it tricky in fun downwind conditions. The Hovie 10'10"is a fun beginners board but way too short and wide for a good downwinder. Haven't been on the Hobie but at the races here it looks very similar to everyone's stock class racer.
