Silver Surfer sharing waves on Maui with MJ & Jock
- 2nd attempt with lower mounted GoPro for better self righting, waves were too small to show much.
Did not get into editing or adding good sound track on this test video.
- awaiting better conditions......

Hugh,

Killer action photos........ Key word is "Action"!!!

Question: how far out was the surfing action ?

MJ,

While looking at the Hugh's photos, the movie "Jaws" came to mind.
Remember the line, "We are going to need a Bigger Boat".
Well, I found myself saying out loud "I'm going to need a Bigger Prop"

its really close in,, but it only breaks on a north swell,,


its not to fast and no surfers like it,,, perfect for rc surfen
the only reason we got pics is Hugh's surfer got broke the day before ,


, or he would have been out getting tube

MJ,

Looks like a really fun spot........ you guys are really setting the bar ....... up there. I love it.

I surfed 4 packs every day last week, it was sooo good at Mark's place.

Except on Sunday........ I did sucked down 9 packs for an all day session...... it just keeped getting better and better.

I'm voting for the Bro-Down XX location to be at Mark's........ No surfers, great setup.

I'm crafting a new left arm for InDaTube....... will keep you updated.

Larry

My response: "i don't have a problem, all of you MF's have a problem"!! LOL

I'm in process of crafting a new left arm for InDaTube...... photo attached.

Happy Birthday Dom,

Neptune sure gave you a bunch of nice waves for your birthday.
Maui's North Shore is getting pounded with 10-20 ft waves (face height) this afternoon Thursday thru Saturday.
We are planning to do a Maui sunrise session Friday with MJ, Jock & Karl - car loaded with rc surfers & camera gear.

SHALLOW




what is inside ,, it seems a little pricey you can get a bro surfer for cheaper than that,,,




i know they are the same size, have similar compenants, and work about the same,,



what would we rather have bro ,, or lisa,,, i would pick a bro surfer,,

Afew years back i sold a Daihatsu truck.... it was kindof oldparts hard to getperformed its job perfectly but no one wanted it..
Ithenadvertised it onebay and described all the good bits it came with... even though it wasjust an oldtruck.

Itsoldmainly cause the tray was just the perfect size forthe buyersbobcat digger... all he had to do was make some ramps.

Imo if something is in good condition with everything required to run it and some extra things maybe oldish but good value for the deal someone will buy it and be happy.... if i had nothinexceptsome bucks i'd be tempted shallowminded....

Then again if i had lotsaextra stuffand some bucks i'd be more tempted with Bro or RC Hawaiin.....

but as i amjust mewith no bucksi'm just stickin me 2c in cause i like to be annoying..... lol
