Puakea rudders?

Due to the current Zombie Apocalypse I'm lucky enough to be spending alot more time paddling. I paddle a Kahe Kai. When I surf I sometimes feel I could use a little more rudder. I also venture close to reef and have done serious damage. Thinking it might be cool to have a few rudders available depending on my "mood" (yes I'm bored). Anyone have any experience with Puakea's Grip or Flatwater rudders?

Florida boy here. I spent 4 months each of the last 9 years on Oahu paddling with Lanikai, but my annual Hawaii sojourns have come to an end. I'm looking for a used OC2 on the east coast to introduce this wonderful lifestyle to new paddlers. Willing to drive reasonable distances for a fair deal.

Hurricane OC1 loose alma

Just bought a used Hurricane in great condition but the front iako will only lock in the heaviest position (6th). It's loose and pulls out when rigged lighter. Do the grooves in the alma locking the iako in place rub down over time? Anybody with the same experience? Solutions? Duct / electrical tape? New alma? Thanks!

OC1 for a beginner with ocean experience

Hi Paddlers,

I'm trying to get into OC1 and think about getting a boat but there are so many choices and essentially most have good reviews. I'm 5,8 and 165 pounds (unfortunately 54 years old). I've been racing/surfing SUP in ocean conditions for the past 6 years and did OC-6 many years ago. There are a good number of deals for a Huki VX1, Scorpius XS and a Pegasus.

Any advice of which boat I should think about getting? Or any other boats that you think are good for a beginner like me who has paddling experience.

Thanks so much,

Tips for beginners

Ok, let me start out by saying I have great respect for the true watermen (and women) on OC1s. I’m only an intermediate paddler and want to share what I have learned so far and ask others to add to this discussion.

Tips for beginners:

Take a clinic if you can – you will learn more in 3 hours than you will on your own in six months.

As you insert the paddle blade in the water (the catch):
-Is the face of the blade at 90 degrees to left and right (not fore and aft) of the hull or are you inserting the blade in the water at an angle (left or right)?
-Is the shaft near vertical?
