Saraina Koat Mentawai : Surf Charter Boats

Saraina Koat runs some really sweet charters to the Mentawais. I HIGHLY recommend them: organized, good crew, good food, knowledgeable guides, and nice boats. Also, a boat is totally the way to go. You have far more flexibility andchoice of breaks. Plus no bugs since you are offshore and the mozzies can't smell you from that far away

Meaning, of course, they don't have a gimmick. Just well-made stuff. These board shorts are made of quick-drying, extremely durable but comfortable nylon, and sewn in Southern California just as they have been for nearly 50 years. They seem to last just about forever. Many of the standard board shorts one sees today were originally patterned on Birdwell's. If you're looking for a liner, don't look here-- say hello to freedom as far as interior appointments are concerned. I've been wearing these since I was a kid and am currently rotating three pairs, all custom-ordered in my choices of color/cut/material. Birdwell Beach Britches is a small, family-owned, very low-tech company, so dealing with them takes a human touch and some patience sometimes. But it is well worth it!

  • A good choice for handling the fridged waters of lake superior; great shape, and thickness to battle the not-so-buoyant fresh water. yes, we surf lake superior

  • this is crucial for travel.

  • This stuff has been around for ages and is used, if I'm not mistaken, for keeping one's board maintained. But it sounds SUPER dirty, doesn't it? It also comes in snowboard, skateboard, hockey and other assorted "flavors."

  • Wax up those boards ladies! This wax is beneficial to the oceans, air, water, land, and the creatures of the sea and is completely nontoxic.

The water pressure is so low including the amount of water that comes out it feels like your showering under insect pee. Made with cheap parts and the neoprene's already falling off the bottom. It's crap. Got ripped off.

Man, these boards are beautiful. Made of chambered Oregon fir or spruce, with no foam whatsoever, a stick crafted by 42’s Lars Bergström is built to last “for generations, not months.” I’d love to get one under my feet, and seeing how they are made in my home state, I just might. Buy local!

Made from 80% petroleum-free Japanese neoprene (with a patented merino wool wicking grid inside), Patagonia claims that they have made the most environmentally friendly and warmest wetsuit on the market. More slick skin is totally logical (less wind chill) and the high cost is justifiable when you consider Patagonia’s amazing warrantee program. Rumor has it that a hooded version’s on the way!

The VAPOR utilizes Body Glove's revolutionary neoprene technology, Vapor Flex. Vapor Flex is a super stretch neoprene laminated between a tightly woven, water repellent, nylon-spandex exterior, and a tightly looped, body-heat insulating, Thermofiber interior. Vapor Flex is the key ingredient that makes the VAPOR the warmest, driest, and lightest wetsuit on the market. The VAPOR also utilizes Fluidseal, a liquid stretch tape that allows zero water penetration, along with Body Glove's ergonomically designed Floodgate. The Floodgate is an internal zipper barrier that maximizes warmth by preventing water flow. And if that wasn't enough, the VAPOR incorporates an innovative, five major panel design that maximizes stretch by reducing the amount of seams.

A cheap pair of shorts can leave a nasty rash on the inside of your thighs that can burn for days. Quiksilver puts a lot of research and development into their products and I have noticed that their boardshorts have “surfer friendly” seams. I recommend the Quiksilver Game On II boardshorts…or for that matter, any Quiksilver boardshort.

Leashes tether the surfboard to the surfer’s body and help prevent the surfboard from flying into other surfers. Local breaks are getting crowded and this could save some poor souls teeth. If you plan on surfing in France a leash is a must. The French have passed a law mandating that all surfers must be leashed to their boards. Price – about $20.00

I don't actually have time to surf anymore... and when I do have time I sorta alreay know where I want to go based on what's happening in the water and how many people I feel like punching in the face (because that's how we roll in L.A.) but I bought this book because it made me laugh when I was flipping through it in the bookstore: They called out a certain Ho'wood producer as being a kook and made other apt-and-vaguely-cruel cracks. Worth getting if you know your spots and if you don't... and a decent option if you're looking to upgrade from Bank Wright's guide (even thought he wins in the "author whose name most qualifies him to write a surfing guide" category).

  • If crack had a smell (oh..well maybe it does...I wouldn't know), this would be it. The best smell in the world.
