12 Laird Stand Up Paddle Board Flat Water Review PDF Print E-mail
By: Stand Up Paddle Surfing Magazine   
Thursday, 18 December 2008
    The Laird series of stand up paddle surfboards by Surftech will forever have their place in the history of the sport as one of the earliest production models available to the general public through retail outlets. Designed by Ron House with input from Laird, this board has for a long time become the measuring stick for stand up paddle board that followed in terms of stability and performance. We recently had occasion to try out a brand spanking new yellow 12’ Laird right off the shelf, shiny and new. For this review we had two riders, one experienced stand up paddler of about 175 lbs and another complete newbie, never before been on a stand up paddleboard paddler of about 230 lbs. The fin installed was the stock 9” single fin that comes with the board. The waves were down so we took it out into the flat water. In this article we’ll cover the shape, stability, and overall impressions.

Surfboard Fins - Everything a Surfer Needs to Know PDF Print E-mail
By: Robb Bailey   
Wednesday, 10 December 2008
    Surfboards tend to come in several different shapes and sizes. When you walk into a surf store, you will likely see boards ranging from 5 to 12 feet long. In addition, you will find a wide assortment of fins for the surfboard - one, two, three, four, or even five of them in some cases. The fin is an essential component to your board. Without it, you won't be able to catch or turn on a wave as easily. Each fin serves a different function. Long boards must have at least one fin placed directly in the middle of the tail of the board ; short boards should have at least two fins evenly placed at the tail.

A Review of the Aqualglide Aluminum Adjustable Paddle PDF Print E-mail
By: Stand Up Paddle Surfing Magazine   
Friday, 28 November 2008

aquaglidepaddlesm.jpg    The Aquaglide aluminum adjustable stand up paddle is a great for friends, family, and lessons. We’ve had occasion to use them and they definitely have some strong points. In this review we’ll look at the construction materials, adjusting mechanism, and overall impression.

    The paddle features an aluminum shaft with a molded plastic handle and blade. The handle is contoured and comfortable for any size hand and is textured for a non-slip grip. The molded blade is surprisingly durable and functional. Like most stand up paddles, it is set at an angle to maximize the efficiency of your stroke. Although it lacks the refined shape of a carbon or fiberglass blade, it holds its shape and doesn’t seem to bend or give even with aggressive strokes. The aluminum shaft is extremely durable and ready for abuse.

How to Make Your New Wetsuit Last Forever! PDF Print E-mail
By: Stand Up Paddle Surfing Magazine   
Saturday, 22 November 2008
wetsuitcouple150.jpg    Keeping out of the frigid waters is a big plus for stand up paddling in the colder regions of our blue planet. Many stand up paddlers have embraced the freedom of being able to get out on the water at their local breaks without a wetsuit and without contracting pheumonia or getting frostbite from sitting in subzero temperatures. We've also seen photos of stand up paddlers venturing out on the water with grey skies and snow on their boards. For those who are braving the elements of cold and wind and simply must use a wetsuit, this article is for you. It was actually written for divers, however it applies to stand up paddlers and surfers alike. We thought it was a great article on how to preserve your wetsuit and we have the right to republish it here on Stand Up Paddle Surfing Magazine. It's extremely informative and if followed will help your new wetsuit last forever.
