Being new at this SUP stuff, I have been having trouble on this board. But today. I went with a friend who had a 12' board. I used his and he rode mine. His 12' board was easier for me, even with the swells and he had a great time on mine. He says it's very maneuverable and fun to ride. Even though the swells were huge for me, he rode them easily. His comment was that it was a good board. Made me feel pretty good.

That's great to hear, Ron. I'm sure you'll be more comfortable on the shorter board as your experience grows...

[attachment=0]IMG_1661.JPG[/attachment]I won a paddleboard lesson at the crab races here in Paamul. This is my instructor on my board. She caught a wave and had a real nice ride into the beach. She said the board is fun. With an instructor like this, I may take more lessons. Not sure why the pictures are on their side..

Looks great, Ron. I was thinking about the Rampage before the Torpedo. Cool boat.

I will probably order the plans for the rampage and the book about Inboard installation before we leave for Mexico in Sept...I think it would be a fun boat with a 350 and i/o drive. At least that's what I'm thinking now

Well Chug, a 350 may be wimpy but when you're living on a small pension a blown big block is kinda out of the question. And the pics that are sideways. Who cares man, she looks good no matter how the pic is laying.....lol
