MEAN! Nice to see you guys getting wind up there. That pueo seems to be workin pretty nicely for you painteur. Why the hell wasnt it ever like that while we were training for molokai hoe?

Sweet footage. Wish we could have had some of that wind for the Molo relay... How long is that run? Where does it start/finish? Sure looks like fun.

#2 Mon, 05/11/2009 - 8:31am

Also sprach painteur. You've taken it to a Ramboesque level, brah!

#3 Mon, 05/11/2009 - 8:34am

Thanks Jim and hanshead. Unfortunately we don't get that stuff too often.
It's about 22 miles from Point Dume to Marina del rey. Our run was abot 20 miles because the beach break at the point was too gnarly to launch. Had to go below it.

Nice video, where did you get that bungie system from?

#5 Mon, 05/11/2009 - 8:46am

Just 20? You guys are slackin'. Nah, I'd most definitely perish if I tried that right now. I just got my whitewater guide license, and no oc1 for about 6 weeks. Lot's o' freezing cold miles, not much paddling. I'll have to take the cam when the river comes up...

keuhl vid painteur.

do you feel like the camera rig on your ama changes the way your canoe handles? i tried doing a run with my go pro on the handle bar mount thing that go pro makes. had it placed right at the point where the rear iako turns to go into the ama. it was probably just a mental thing, but damn the ama felt unwieldy on that run.

probably a hard question for painteur to answer jc9... he's got so much shit strapped on, how to pinpoint where it comes from? camera in the front, camera to the rear, pole camera on the iako, kite in the front, tuna trolling rig off the back... i'm surprised he hasn't been stopped by homeland security going into the harbor- he looks like a surveillance vehicle....

jc9 0 yes I can feel the weight of the gear. It's between 1-2 pounds. It's a little harder to get the ama to release from the surface. I later noticed also that I had it rigged for flat water, which added to the drag factor. The bungie system is home-made with glue-on loops from Jude HUKI's website. The weight up front helps me get over the hump and I like to see how much liquid I've consumed. This vid wasn't shot with gopro's. They (actually me) failed. My new favorite camera is the Oregon Scientific. Not much heavier, waterproof, holds 8gig card, has a viewfinder, and records for 4+ hours. No wide angle but I gladly trade length of recording versus wide angle. One of these days all Cameras will work perfectly.

Nice downwind run video. Great to see more OC1 videos on here to watch.

where did you get that bungie system from?

They sell those loop mounts at most Surf/SUP shops here in Hawaii as well. They come in singles or pairs depending on where you go and either have the peel and stick backing or is glued on with epoxy. Better to use epoxy as the peel and stick backings tend to come off in the heat and the tension of the bungie cord.

The ones I got go by the name of E-Z Plug Leash Mount and were from Go Bananas on Kapahulu.

Love that drop at 17:30 Painteur, i know that was bigger than it looks. The extra volume in the Pueo front half seems to help eh.

What happened to the GoPros Painteur, forget to turn them on?

Cheers Rambo

#11 Mon, 05/11/2009 - 9:58pm

Thanks e7m and painteur, yeah I would like a bungie system in front for the same reasons.

#12 Mon, 05/11/2009 - 12:59pm

Nice vid as usual from the Dume run crew. What were you guys using to send out the distress call?

#13 Mon, 05/11/2009 - 2:18pm

That looks crazy fun! Downhill all day long..Thanks for the vid!

#14 Mon, 05/11/2009 - 2:21pm

Kimo that wasn't much of a distress call. We had 2 marine radios with us and communicated about dachos tech problem. Worked perfectly for that and if it would have turned nasty we had the ability to call the Coasties, including automatic GPS reading. Very reassuring in our still very cold waters!

#15 Mon, 05/11/2009 - 3:15pm


can't beat $40 .. worked good.

painteur has a fancy one with gps with distress button...

#16 Mon, 05/11/2009 - 6:14pm

That could be the best $40 any paddler ever spends, especially for the cold water folks.

#17 Mon, 05/11/2009 - 9:45pm

Very fun to watch. Thanks

#18 Tue, 05/12/2009 - 12:11am

i didnt know they had alright downwind runs in cali wow. not bad at all im inpressed

#19 Tue, 05/12/2009 - 4:32am

Breakwall runs in long beach were good most of the time, and going straight out and back in marina del rey was fun, but u had to wait till the afternoon for the wind to pick up. But for some reason there was never any wind on race day, ever.

#20 Tue, 05/12/2009 - 7:18am


come over to Nor Cal. durring the spring and summer. good runs here.

#21 Tue, 05/12/2009 - 12:21pm

I think the water is still a little cold for me. And I'm too poor to take trips like that all the time...
