RE: RC Surfer
Now I know what you go through every time you operate your surfer.
Just got home from glassy 2 1/2 foot "Point Moore".
I ran 12 packs there today and there was about 30 4wd vehicles parked on the beach and about 50 people in the water constantly.
They were riding every kind of water craft imaginable.
Paddle boards, surfboards, boogie boards, people body surfing, mums and dads holding toddlers or teaching little kids how to catch waves.
All packed into a very small area, right where the main break is.
Anyway, I was standing out in the water about waste deep and shredding my way through the pack.
Got the Dude some sick set waves from the peak 'cause he could beat everyone else out to the takeoff zone on the sets.
If there was someone on the inside the Dude was just dropping in on them and surfing along with them or just leaving them in the soup behind him.
When the mob would get too thick then he just shredded around the edges of the pack until a set would come.
Don't know how I didn't crash into anyone.
My board looks trashed and needs to be stripped and cleaned thoroughly.
It has had 2 dozen packs rammed through it in 2 days.
Also got the Kyosho Lisa turning well now, I tried that at "Pages" at 6 am this morning on some clean little lefts, only about 1/2 to 1 foot though.
I took off the side fins and used the original rudder, also noticed that the servo arm was shorter than the one on my NQD because it had been cut off or broken at the top hole, so I replaced that and now the board is super responsive and turns perfectly.
But I still have to clean up the shredding machine and charge up again so it is ready to run again tomorrow.
Geez, i'm glad I usually have the waves all to myself, that really was mega challenging today.
Blowin' minds again!!!
