Adventures in fin fitting/tuning.

Apologies if you already saw this posted on the DAWG Facebook page....While in Hatteras last week, Glen tried my board and rig to see if he should rig up. He came back asking what the vibration was. I hadn’t noticed, but in looking it over, we found the fin to be loose in the box (Powerbox). Turns out the screw was tight, and not too long as I tried a shorter one and it still had a little slop from side to side, not fore/aft. I always torque them down good, as I lost one on Cass a few years…See More

Shaun Arntz replied to Bob Schoen's discussion instructor info and new "how to" book
"Ah that would make sense. And I guess I should have said more like the figures you see on bathroom stalls rather than stick figures. Anyway thanks for the info and the description. Would it be okay if I emailed you for a more in depth conversation…"

Bob Schoen replied to Bob Schoen's discussion instructor info and new "how to" book
"Hi Shaun. It appears you are referring to the "complimentary" ABK manual, page 19, as the Tricktionary book is all full color pictures - no stick figures.  I am not sure why they show light wind and high wind with normal stance, but…"

instructor info and new "how to" book

There is a new windsurfing instructor program taking hold. https://www.windsurfingipa.org/The web site is worth a look. It is supported by many pros and others to help promote the sport. It is geared towards getting more instructors out there, but there is a lot of related info as well. It appears to be better supported than US Sailing was (they are also backing this program and forgoing theirs). They are offering a gratis Level 1 rating for those…See More

"Hi Jason.  There is a very enthusiastic group of guys/gals that sail Cass. I have a group email list of about 30 that will show up depending on the wind and their ability to sneak out of work or chores. We'll email the group to see who is…"

BIC Nova centerboard fin plug "found"

Sorry to send this to all.... Someone recently bought a BIC Nova from Larry Campbell in Waterford.  I ended up with a box of parts from him that contained the center fin plug that fills that hole when that center fin is not used (typically for beginners/ learning).  Obviously I have no use for it and would like to get it to whoever bought that board. Contact me if you are that person.See More

I got the OK from the park on a date. Saturday, May 12th from 10 - 3. Please pass the word. If you can print out and hang the attached flyer around town or your workplace, great. I am working on "door prizes" again this year, but likely won't know what I'll get until much closer to the day. Looking forward to an…See More
