    RE: RC Surfer

    If your kyosho has the stainless steel brackets that hold the deck screws
    it should be easy to change over to a wing nut system.

    Just get some 5 mm threaded bolts long enough to mount
    under the the brakets (using the holes the bracket already has)
    and able to go thru the deck lid, then epoxy them in or tighten them with hex nuts.

    Then get some ss washers to go over the rubber seal washers and install wing nuts.
    just have to make sure the washer under the wing nut keeps water out.

    I haven't tried it, or ever seen it done, but in theory
    it should work great....

    RE: RC Surfer

    Yes it does have stainless steel brackets. I will give that a try. Good idea. I was thinking a electric screwdriver would help too. The old wrist get sore after a while. LOL , Hey good luck with the new board. It really looks cool. And I bet it handels as well or better than the kyosho board. I was digging around in my old rc marine box and found a Tekin 4-32 Marine ESC. The thing still works. Tekin makes very good stuff. I hope the get back into the marine speedos again.

    RE: RC Surfer

    Park,

    Thanks for Thumbs up on the new board. It takes a lot more time to make them than I thought it would.
    The One thing a like about it, is I finally have some control over the Supply and Production making the boards in house.
    It was difficult to keep supply for the boards coming from Asia, and having to depend on them...

    The Electric Screwdriver is a must have.

    RE: RC Surfer

    Hey,Hey,Hey....

    Last week I spent Surfing San Clemente with Maui John and his friends...

    I missed out on a lot of cool photos since I stripped the mount on my camera.

    John gave me some footage shot from his Go Pro at our session at the Strands...

    I managed to pull out these photos from the first video file...




    Randy's Surfer




    A photo of Slash doing his thing...




    Poor John...we were just dropping in on him all morning, he was fending us off with a very large stick that his GoPro was mounted on.


    I am impressed by the quality of the photos taken from the actual video...opens new possibilities for sure.


    Will post more as I go through the rest of the "thrown away" footage...wish I could have saved previous days with InDaTube at State Park...

    RE: RC Surfer

    Last week we were at Lowers Surfing 2-3 foot surf...I noticed a Japanese Photographer with a real nice Canon Lens...I'm a Canon kinda guy so I walked up and introduced myself and handed him one of my cards...saying if I happen to get in the way of your camera will you shoot me a photo or two...

    Maui John later noticed a stuck on the side of his $10,000 lens...he was there to photograph a couple Japanese groms that were just tearing it up!

    No way was he interested in taking photos of us...commented MJ


    Hayato sent me an email today...


    Hi,Tom!

    This is Hayato,photographer.
    I took a super cool pictures on that day!
    So, I send these for you.

    See you at Lowers again!

    Hayato Masuda














    Yep...photographers, no matter how jaded or feed up with people asking for photos, cannot help themselves when they find themselves in the presence of a Rc Surfer...

    kitekook     The same thing happen to me too. There was a wedding on the beach. While they were waiting for the bride to show up. The wedding photographer walked over and snapped a few action shots of my RC surfer.

    RE: RC Surfer

    Kite - amazing pics, I love that last one with both surfers.
    I wish I could surf with you and MJ!!!

    Just seeing if I can upload a pic of my finished board (started earlier in the year on Cana's site). Its 33 inch and running on 4 cells. Water/self right tested but not hasn't been run in the surf yet - hoping to rum with itsFishi when he is up here over Chrissy. Has stayed nice and light using carbon and epoxy and needed around 300gms of lead on keel.
    If this pic works I will put up a couple more...

    RE: RC Surfer

    Hey Barrels...........good to see your board complete.....it looks great....love to see more pics of the inside and bottom.
    I like the tail shape.........reckon it will style !

    I had a 'very keen' persistent buyer, bend my arm to purchase my 'personal Bro' ( every thing has a price)........it was quite a sad moment to part with 'Bro'....... we've had some great sessions together.

    Anyways......at least I will go into 2013 now knowing how to build one.......rather than wondering if I could, as at the start of 2012.

    Looking back on 2012......its been a really fun and fascinating year - developing my Bro ********........next year I would like to focus that much more on 'really learning to rip' in the Surf......I have a few exiting moves in mind......
