    Heck it's fun to dream ...

    Years ago I had a guy that wanted high performance rc Kayaks
    I didn't want to mess with it, but I looked on the web today
    and found this: The information states the figure paddles strong.

    At least the paddle part is possible.

    RE: RC Surfer

    Hey- Ya the dude makes the board bank for sure. For a while the arm on the actuator was worn out so he wobbled a bit more that normal. That is at Sunset Beach.The Boardshark guy tends to only take so much abuse and then he starts to break down and I don't jump. ThanksCave, I like being( Kilowatt Karl ) I am a bit led footed on the throttle too.
    Aloha, Karl

    RE: RC Surfer

    Hey Curls........... I just bought my 4 year old daughter, 'Cassidy Ray' a baby doll that actually 'swims' by rotating her arms and kicking her legs........maybe !.......LOL ( I'll send the link)...........are you thinking the surfer should 'duck under' as well.........?

    Honestly...... don't know about the rest.......but I am more than happy with the static ******** function as it is.......anything more, as Karl mentions, just eventually leads to extra bother in maintenance and repairs = cost !........and the risk of a great session being spoilt by a breakage !

    Keep It Simple !

    RE: RC Surfer

    Surfcurls

    Yeh reckon the $70 ******** is long gone too and was lucky i was sittin down when i checked the price...didn't even bother checkin the postage.... 

    Anyway for those out there that like the rcsurfrider custom thrusters... on the Australian Ebay there is a used twice Mick Fanning replica dude custom board with a bad billy fin and side fin water intakes re-listed for sale now.... 10days to go.

    Even though the $500 askin price is a bit steep for me i asked some questions and the seller said it was bought last month for $599 but his 8yr old finds it hard to handle.... it was rinsed off after both sessions but....

    I'm tempted to make an offer if it don't sell in 10days but its still a bit exe for me.... just sayin but worth checkin out if your keen.

    regards bearcave

    RE: RC Surfer

    $500 for a High performance built Kyosho board with Dude is a good find.
    That board looks real clean, and Ed did a nice job on it.
    Costs and prices are only going up...

    With Redbull coming off another F1 car constructers win this paddle incould be big... and apart from other pre-requisites them rhino chasers will need some broad shoulders to paddle hey.

    Surfcurls
    That rcsurfrider board on ebay is a classicyesbut did you see the $119.99 free delivery to Australia 1/8th scale rc mosquito class-757 rc surfer listed by vivi-toy...

    Looks like an nqd dressed as a mozzie..... guess $70 a few years ago equals $120 now

    RE: RC Surfer

    A couple of things to consider.

    it's an Alibaba listing, Some are scams, another thing is its
    F.O.B China, so the shipping is charged to the buyer
    and I bet it's going to be costly.

    Years ago Alibaba had listings for $13 a board
    then they wanted a 500 unit minmum order
    and shipping was Thousands of dollars
    and they wanted the money paid upfront
    by wire transfer, Thats a huge red flag ...

    Theres an old saying "if it's too good to be true"

    RE: RC Surfer

    Speaking of shipping,

    Wondering How Others Travel with or Send their boards by Air.

    Sail Dog Packs his in a hard suitcase when he goes to BVI.

    MJ makes wood crates to ship.

    I cut Foam and then card board encase them.

    Any suggestions are encouraged.

    RE: RC Surfer

    Haha Kite you could be right!
    Mightneed another cave to store the minimum order and not sure Bearly There Enterprises has a complaints department big enough to handle all the 'happy' customers if i was to sell them unmodified.... lol.

    Surfcurls
    yeh good points... i remember you sayin similar about alibaba type sites a while back when jimmi was trying to buy some un-assembled ones.
    Yes the old "if its too good to be true it probabaly is " sayinshould always be remembered.

    The $500 thruster is exe but anyone who buys will have something that works more than once.... even tostrip then modify a cheepy chinese up to acceptable level would prob cost more than that anyway....

    I think i paidabout $60 for my nqd then bought another.... was acheap starting point when you have never done this before but they are woeful in all areas.....one of them worksbut everything was eventually replaced or modified except for thesteering cable tube... and still modifying or repairing... lol.

    Just my opinion but If you can shape and glass its probably bettertobuild one from scratch..... or pay the $500 plus plusto someone who can build and get something that works from day one....

    I know many here have discussed the priceing around a good ********.... Facts are they are hand built, time is money and experience is priceless... at the end of the day you probabaly get more than what you pay for...
