    RE: RC Surfer

    Hey Kite,

    Keeping me stoked
    seems like I had a quick session after having looked thru your daily surf adventures
    that sure looks like a great place to surf your waihine

    Maui weather report says 2-5ft North Shore surf - so maybe there will be a ripple later today - I am ready

    RE: RC Surfer

    Thankx MJ

    I am just trying to make them Surf as good as the Maui Crew...

    Thought you might enjoy a short video....my new video bracket was a bust...I used it for about 30 seconds...just didn't like the weight at the Radio.


    Put the camcorder back on the Helmet ...tried to keep my head still..easier than the camera at the radio.
    Got 17 minutes of acceptable footage with minimal head shake...whittled it down some....


    Scary huh?


    Here is a photo shared form a new friend, Lori

    even shared a wave with her husband Carl




    Ended up busting the mounting screw on the video camera(from previous Mcgiver) so I did not get any footage from Sunny Thursday...next week!

    '
    I have been working on my Bro********.com website which will be launched 'mid week'...........its been great fun putting it all together.......had to learn how to do it all....

    Things are really looking up for rc Surfing Globally, by the end of 2012 we should have- NQD - Pro ******** - Surfcurls....supplying 'production' boards with Maui******** -Surfrider and Bro********......supplying 'custom' boards....and possibly even some others......with prices ranging from $60 - $1200.....there is a board for every one to chose from !

    RE: RC Surfer

    Hey Curls........its great to hear you have a team put together, to for-fill your vision........its all looking good, I am very keen to 'sea' the first board in action. When will your new website be up and running -offering the 'full custom' service ?........ the upcoming Bro#3 could be a good 'launch'....

    Custom built...is exactly as you spell it out.........meeting an individuals (clients) specifications.

    For YPC.... our Bro ********s are/will be 'custom built' to my design specifications...based on what has been proven to work best to my liking, from my own rc surfing experience, working within the framework of my preferred production costing budget and expected surf operating conditions ..... then offering it as a proven product to a keen 'client'

    So I guess you could say, we are offering 'YPC Custom built' rc Surfers'...........

    RE: RC Surfer

    Hey Boyz....

    I'm still in San Clemente...

    I just finished charging my batteries, looking at 1500 images, and 5 batteries worth of video!!!

    Heading back out for more...a couple photos????



    Gray Cloudy Marine layer kind of day...not sure whats up with my camera...sure making the water look delicious....



    getting closer to a barrel[8D]




    The pros are starting to get here for the Hurley Pro...caliber of Surfing is going through the roof!

    They seem as excited as the regular folk when they see Nikki in action...I just keep handing out them there cards...



    I just love San Clemente...if I can figure out how to make a living...I would move here full time...for now it's where I spend my days off...


    Maui...Time to come home.

    Ok, maybe I am being selfish...wanting to Surf with you regularly

    Aloha Dom,

    Kudos for great web site - you sure move fast in towards your vision & goals.
    I admire & commend you for all that you're doing for our wonderful sport.

    I did'nt know that you raced those offshore inflatable cats - SA & Oz folks are nuts with what they are doing with those things.
    Wish I could have done that when I was younger!
    What boats did you use?

    RE: RC Surfer

    Thanks Hugh !......rcSurfing has been an absolute STOKE for me thus far....

    When we raced Inflatables, Lisa-Marie was my Co- Pilot. We raced in the late 80' into the 90's . First raced a 'Neptune' round nose tunnel hull, then we were awarded a Team sponsorship from 'Stingray' when the pencil nose tunnel hull was launched. It was a great period for us.
    After that , we got into Free Style Surf 'stand up' Jet skiing.........which was the ultimate for both of us.

    Then we started our family.........LOL.....the most extreme thing we have ever done......LOL

    Hope you get some classic surf soooooooon!.....looking forward to your photos and videos
