Nah Skwell 12’6" Race – Seriously?

I have no idea what’s going on here sometimes. There’s me, in my comfy little cocoon, mooching about buying the odd one or two surf boards and pretending like I know exactly what I’m doing and that I have a grip on things when

Naish 9′ Mana morphs into 9′ Hokua – Reef Live.


There seems to be some form of synchronicity in the world of sports equipment manufacturing. Our bike launches are always around September / October with the finished product dribbling though from November to April. It would seem to be the same with paddle-boards. You get the odd few rumours and then some ‘spy shots’ then some outdoor shows followed by very limited stock going out through a few chosen dealers by which time the rest of us are salivating like a long term prisoner on the eve of release. Accident or design, who knows?

Anyway I have been waiting to get get my hands on the new Mana 9′ and you know what it’s like, you pretend to be all cool and chilled out

Very windy conditions from the ENE at 20 knots. So we paddled on the westward side of Pickney Island.

Here are some of the pics from today..

ULI Munoz Nicaragua Costa Rica


So long story made short – here goes – we fly into Managua in Nicaragua, rent a 4×4 drive to our beach, stay a night, drive to the border drop the 4×4 off, get totally ass raped by touts at the border, hand our passports over to some unknown quasi official, get them stamped with exit stamps, walk across the border to Costa Rica Immigration, drive to Nosara, drink a beer and think how lucky we are to be at Casa Romantica and then start to worry how the hell we are going to fly out in three weeks when we have non transferable Continental tickets from Managua. Fun Fun Fun.

So back on familiar ground, woke up at 5:00 am and trundled down the path half an hour later with the ULI Munoz 8’11″ – it’s still dark and I can hear the surf even if I can’t see it. I got to admit I’m a little bit scared. Last year I was pretty much always first in the water but all I could think about this morning was sharks and stuff I was really rattled. Weird how the mind messes with itself. Anyway as I gingerly knee paddled out, got some steam up and popped to my feet I began to get my first feel of the new ULI with some proper water moving under it’s fins. Fortunately it gets light as fast as it gets dark here – and that’s very fast – so the heeby jeebies were soon left with dawn’s dark.

New Boards In New Boards Out Sunday’s Session

What a week!! The new ULI Fat Ass gets officially launched and I think – that’s got to be worth a wiggle – a 9’3″ x 33″ that looks like it surf’s reasonably well and with a few ‘D’ rings added to the front should take a fishing box and at 33″ wide ought to be stable enough to double up for that task. Theoretically that means I can get away with just taking one inflatable away with me regardless of conditions and maybe make some use of it through the summer at home as well. The fishing is something that I have been meaning to play around with a bit more and the heavier built FAQ should lend itself nicely to that.
