How to setup the Soloshot 3 so it works 100% of the time. Below are two videos: 1 – is how to setup, calibrate, and be free of interference. These methods allowed me to overcome a very low success rate to now having the Soloshot 3 work 100% of the time.
The second video is how I securely lock my Soloshot 3 and tripod when at the beach, extend the battery life, protect the Soloshot 3 from rain fog wind, and wearing the tag armband.
A tutorial I made for SUP The Mag on how to paddle out through the surf. In this video are a couple techniques I learned this past year, as well as how I get out when it’s overhead plus and heavy.
Filming some of the best paddlers in the world gives me a chance to see what they do in slow motion. After trying the techniques myself I make a video and hopefully this helps others.
So here are 4 ways I use to get out at Ocean Beach:
A Clean Beaches video I made for SUP the Mag.
I started monkeying around with renewable bamboo because I had some poles collecting dust in my garage. Building with free bamboo seemed better than ordering another couple hundred dollars worth of carbon tubes. Now that my eyes are open to building with bamboo, wood, and other plants it’s a no-brainer for me to start building with these materials and stay with it even if…
Over the years living in several different houses my surfboards also needed a home. Putting them in the rafters or loft of a garage or shed was quick storage but pulling them out was always a hassle. So I have made several versions of a wall mounted multi-board rack, and I am stoked with this wood rack I am using now. I made a video tutorial of how I built this wood rack for SUP the Mag.
I built it around 3 years ago and it has held strong and sturdy. Purchasing an unlimited board required re-configuring the rack to accommodate this 17 foot board. It was surprisingly easy to rearrange the rack arms. I am stoked to report the rack has held the weight of 3 downwind boards, 2 sups, and several shortboards totaling about 140 pounds.
Making a rack out of renewable plants is important to me, and I love the smell of wood in my garage:
I am renaming San Francisco Tube City after seeing so many epic barrels this beautiful warm winter day. Twice in the past three years I have wished I brought a prone shortboard with me, a shallow fast reef break in Maui and this day at Ocean Beach.
Driving to the beach I had no idea it would be hollow and barreling. The last time I saw this many barrels it was huge and serious…
