    Aloha KH,
    Hey thanks for the info! People still love rc surfing at the beach. Kids keep asking me where did it get mine. Go Pro video will be a blast.
    Take care

    Kyosho surfers pretty cool aye powerpark, hoping to have a go myself one day with a camera, keen to see how you go with gopro style camera

    While back i was taping lumps of lead on the deck to see how it affected the board... if you haven't done this already, i'm thinkin the extra camera weight on nose will change the way the board handles big time, maybe good maybe bad, but a tip i heard from KH way back when he was doing it was to add some lead sheet under the battery to re-balance if too heavy up front...

    as we know there aint much room under a batt on a Kyosho but just sharin what i heard, all the best with the quest!

    Nice to see you still enjoying the ride

    Hello Bearcave:
    I have added some lead weight under the motor maybe less than a 1/2 of ounce. Epoxied it in. The motor I use provides lots of power. So I have to only use half power until the battery dies down. But having that power helps when the waves are crashing around you. I still have to get the camera. Maybe a good black Friday deal will come up. Used camera funds to buy the new used Kyosho surfer. Its going to need some work. But hell that's half the fun!. Curls Im going to need a nose cone and gasket seal. Take care

    An alternative surfer dude for the 'production boards'

    Showing the foot and stance positioning of the Bro rc Surfer's 28" boards Bro surfer dude on a standard factory PRODUCTION board - fits real well between the fix down bolts - you can either epoxy bond it - or - source the double sided bonding tape used by Go-Pro mounts - certainly will give the overall look better scale... a.bigger presence in the water .....and.... you can Shred somewhat bigger and harder !

    Bro surfer dude size compared to the original standard production surfer dude ...

    Stands 36.5 cm's tall - weighs in at around 200g's - Best suited for a modified production board ....

    Hello there RC Surfers! I am an avid RC Modeller and I have an old (duh!) Kyosho Surfer Dude in great shape that I need to clear out of my garage now that I am remodeling my workshop. I fly Jet, 3D, helis and don't live near the coast so it has to go. I didn't get to play with it much anyway. So it is old and faded but no cracks or breaks. It is complete and also has some parts I bought from rcsurfrider.com back in 2005 like a cooling coil, props, foam, and an antena for 72 mZh. I was looking to convert to brushless but never did. It has the original brushed can motor with heat sink coil installed and a pretty nice Airtronics steering servo which probably still works fine but would need a JR/Futaba plug. It has a couple of Kyosho props too. Anyway you get the idea! I think I did a pretty good job painting the Dude but it has all faded and yellowed a bit. I can send pics to anyone interested. This surfer should go to someone who knows what it is, is a hobbyist, and lives somewhere they can enjoy it. I can send pics and if anyone wants to make me an offer please note that I will have to pack and ship it and that ain't going to be free! I am not trying to make money on this thing. But to toss it out would be a real shame. Let me know if there is a better place to post this. I am in Livermore, CA. Thanks!
