Best way to secure OC1 for long (14 hour) drive?

Hi everyone,
3 years after moving from Maui to Wyoming, I'm at last getting another OC1.

Since Maui was short driving distances, and I had cradles on my Jeep - I'm curious if this is the best method for long distances and higher speeds.

I now have a Subaru Impreza, with factory cross bars.....just wondering if hull up, or hull down (in cradles), is the best option.
I'll be driving from San Francisco to Wyoming (about 14 hours).

Mahalo for any advice!

OC 1 on a lake in Wyoming?

Hi fellow paddlers, I moved to Wyoming from Hawaii 3 years ago....and I REALLY miss my OC-1.
I know lake paddling is definitely possible....but can anyone tell me the best way to go about actually getting one here.

The logistics are really the only thing stopping me - if anyone can share their story of getting it shipped to them - how they packed it, who they used, that would be great!

Found Iako

Did you leave your iako behind in a post-paddle brain fart? Post here or message me to identify where and what type of iako you abandoned so I can get them back to you!

UPDATE: Owner found, iako returned, crisis averted. I don't know how to delete this post...

Cool weather top

Back to OC1. Live on east coast USA. Lookin for cool weather top that’s not super tight like wetsuit, etc, Something for spring and fall. Lookin at the Vaikobi one. Warm but unrestricted...easy to get on and off.

Steering blade shapes: Tahitian vs "regular"

More and more paddle companies (at least, that sell on the Internet) are offering "Tahitian" style steering blades for V6/OC6 with taller (?), skinnier, lozenge-shaped blades. For folks who use or have used them: how are they similar to and different from more traditional (well, for the last 25 years anyway) steering blades, such as the Foti and Biscuit (Kialoa), or Ahi and Aku (Kai Ko'o)?


Paddling DVD

Will try again. I suffered a bad snowboarding accident a few years ago. Thought my paddling days were over. I did get out on my OC1 this past summer. Found I’m really deconditioned. It’s turning cold here. I’m trying to get my conditioning better. Do the paddle erg, stationary bike, elliptical, etc. Have one paddling video.....te aito from 2012. Videos/DVD’s keep me sane and are inspirational. Any recommendations would be appreciated. I don’t know how to look for them. Mahalo.
