THE GOOD NEWS IS................
The good news is that the Paddle Surf Hawaii 9'3" Ripper shaped by Blane Chambers lives up to it's name......it rips!!! It looks aggressive and it surfs aggressive. The future of SUP is like every other new board sport, things start getting smaller and smaller and younger people start getting into it and take it to another level. We at BlueLine realize this so not only will we cater to the folks that want to be mellow and just Cruise we will also be on the cutting edge of performance SUP surfing. We will carry the boards to make this happen. The most high performance SUP board that I have ever surfed is the Ron House 9'1" quad. This board is 27" wide and carves like mad! The PSH 9'3" is right in there. It's a great high performance board tested by the big boys over on the islands. Come by the store and check it out along with all the other boards. We have them all.
Now for the not so good news. While test surfing the Blane Chambers 9'3" Ripper in some great waves I went over the falls and landed on my paddle blade. My foot went limp and after looking down to check for damage I found that I had a big ass gash on my lower front leg. After looking even closer I realized that I was looking at my bone! Turns out the paddle blade cut right down to the bone and cut the tendon along the way. Lots of blood followed. After getting out of the water and heading to the car a friend in the parking lot saw my leg and drove me to the ER. Thanks John. I now have my tendon sewed up as well as my leg. I will be on crutches for awhile and out of the water. Shit happens and it's all part of the game. See you all at the grand opening this Sunday. OUT.
