Re: Banksboard 1 or 2?

My next trip to the coast, if the swell's decent, I'm gonna try surfing my gen 2 BB boogie board style. I think it'll work really well for that. Certainly has more float than my boogie boards!

Re: Banksboard 1 or 2?

[QUOTE='o Cino;1936286]But when you do catch those 10"+ free swimmers, the BB2 can handle the weight!

Safety warning: If the 10's are swimming, get out of the water. They've been known to slam...

Re: Banksboard 1 or 2?

My board, as well as all of my kayaks, are bright orange for the reasons Diablo mentioned. I've also found a flag invaluable for finding my board. It's amazing how little swell it takes to block...

Re: Banksboard 1 or 2?

I'm not sure there's a "3". I believe there is a first and second generation of the first, smaller hull, and then there's the "2", which is the bigger hull.

So far, I've been able to clip my...

Re: Wax Your Kayak For Speed?

Re: I could picture a bloody fish on the hood.

I remember fishing with my dad back in the 60's and watching the old water cars of the day drive down the boat ramp and out onto the lake.
Modern version of a very old idea.

Re: What's a Limited edition JBL sawed-off magnum worth?

Since it might have more value as a collector's item than a working gun, maybe contact Guy Skinner at JBL. He might be interested in it for display?

Re: CA Winter Wetsuit

Merry Christmas Dano,
Hey, I wasn't talking about Mako suits, (although reading my post, it might have sounded that way, sorry). I have an old suit from a manufacturer that I believe is now out of...

Re: CA Winter Wetsuit

As to weight, my 7mm freedive suit takes the same amount of weight as my old 7mm scuba suit, so I wouldn't expect to take a lot of weight off your belt.
As to thickness, when I decided to buy a...

Re: Why use notched shafts?

I spear in NorCal, and don't shoot fish big enough to bend shafts. For me, the advantage of a notched shaft with the mono attached to the rear comes when I string fish, which is often if they're...

My LDS also has a whole rack of accessories for the Intova. If the camera itself is of good quality, they have a pretty slick system. My only concern is that from...

Re: Scupper Pro 15' vs 17'

Yep, you're absolutely right. I forgot about the rudder option and the pedals that go with it. I have a rudder on my 17' Sea Lion, but would never want one on my scupper. I never found a need for...

Intova Sport HD camera.

Anybody using these thing yet? At $150 it looks like a good deal, and the LDS said they sell a lot of them and haven't heard any complaints.

Re: Scupper Pro 15' vs 17'

That's weird. I've never seen or heard of a 17' scupper either. I've also never seen one with the foot pedals that one has. If it's got the hull lines of a scupper and is indeed 17'6" long, it's...
