The Mule for Stand Up Paddle Surfboards PDF Print E-mail
By: Stand Up Paddle Surfing Magazine   
Tuesday, 30 October 2007
ImageOne of the challenges of stand up paddle surfing is transporting the board. If you are going to be walking or biking your board around, the MULE is an excellent option. It exceeded our expectations by far! The MULE is simple and easy to assemble, and once you adjust it to your board length, you basically just slip a loop over the tail and one over the nose, and you're off. You can load your board on a MULE in 20-30 seconds.

ImageTraditional ways of carrying a surfboard don't always work with stand up paddle boards. They are too wide to carry under your arm, they are often too thick to fit in a bike rack carrier (not to mention the wind that blows you off the road as soon as it hits the board while you're peddling along), they're too heavy to carry long distances, and they can be somewhat awkward to manage while juggling a paddle and leash. Mule Transport Systems' solution to this is the MULE.

How To Buy A Surf Rack - The Best Surfboard Racks On the Market PDF Print E-mail
By: Hayley Gordon   
Wednesday, 24 October 2007
Unless you live right next to the beach, getting your surfboard to the shore can be a bit difficult. If you've got an SUV or a pickup truck then life is easy, but if you have a smaller car you'll probably want to invest in some quality surf racks. There are actually a number of different options available for the safe transport of your board.

If you have a small compact car with no factory racks, you can buy aftermarket hard racks from companies such as Yakima and Thule. They offer racks to fit just about every car. Although they can be a little pricey, if you are an avid surfer then the investment will be worth it.

Surfing Wetsuits 101 - How To Pick The Best Wetsuits For Surfing PDF Print E-mail
By: Hayley Gordon   
Monday, 22 October 2007
Winter is a fact of life for many people who enjoy the sport of surfing. However, cold air and water temperatures don't have to stop your sessions! Enter the wetsuit, probably the single biggest invention in surfing since the surfboard itself.

Wetsuits are tight fitting bodysuits made of flexible neoprene rubber. They work by trapping a thin layer of water between the neoprene and the skin. The body heats up this water, thus keeping the surfer warm.

When picking out a suit, you're going to want to get one that is specifically designed for surfing. That means seeking out your local surf shop. Don't go to a dive shop or swimming store. Surfing wetsuits are specially made to endure the specific repetitive motions that surfers make when they're out in the ocean. For example, non-surfing suits can have seams in bad places that will cause major rashes when you've been paddling for a few hours.

Review: Brudda Brand Epoxy Ding Repair PDF Print E-mail
By: Review Staff   
Friday, 07 September 2007

Image     Dings are a common issue with stand up paddle surfers, especially for those starting out and those riding big waves. It's inevitable that the paddle is going to jump to the side and..."crunch"...put a hole in the side of your board. It happens, and sometimes you don't even notice until you're out of the water rinsing off your board. it's just part of the sport. We've seen Brudda Brand Bulletproof Epoxy Ding Repair on the homepage of Stand Up Paddle Surfing Magazine for some time now, and it's about time we did a review on the product.

Image     Brudda Brand claims to be quick and easy, so we put it to the test, and it passed with flying colors. Brudda Brand has the consistency of clay or play dough. We broke off a piece and mixed it with our fingers, then filled the ding and smoothed it out with a wet finger. It was extremely easy to work with. The Bulletproof product dried and the board was ready to go back in the water in less than 5 minutes.  When it dried as fast as it did, we were sold. The product activated itself so we didn't need to put the board out in the sun or anything to fix the ding.

Gear Review: Infinity "ottertail" Paddle PDF Print E-mail
By: Alan Sidlo   
Saturday, 18 August 2007

     Part of the genius of infinity's ottertail paddle lies in the relationship between its blade's position to the paddle's shaft. the blade is mounted in front of the shaft which is cut in an angle to set the blade's offset. The shaft forms a supporting spine running almost the whole length of the blade making for more soundness of structure.
