Hey folks! This week, being the 4th of July and I’m traveling and a lot of you guys are too, we don’t have a guest… But, I didn’t want to leave you hanging so I decided to answer some fan questions and talk about the rules of surfing. Last week I was a guest on SUPFm’s podcast and their audience is general paddle boarding. They asked a few questions about basic entrance to surfing and I thought we should have some of it on the record here, so if there are some beginners who are just starting to surf they’ll know the rules of surfing.

For fan questions, I answer Bill and Cindy’s questions about foot stance while paddling, common SUP injuries and how to avoid them and where should you start surfing.

Please let me know if you like this format and I should do a few more or if it’s terrible and I should never do it again 🙂

Shirts were delayed a bit but they’re coming. I am also trying to get some long sleeve surfing shirts…

On a fun note, we have a 5-star swell headed our way and if all works out some incredible paddle enhanced surfers are flying in tomorrow to surf it with me. We’ll be doing photos/videos and releasing them here, so stay tuned for that! Pura Vida!!! Erik

    I’m new to your blog and paddle surfing in general. I thought episode 9 of the pod cast was interesting. Especially the part about spotting waves for the surfers. I definitely noticed that I see the sets coming much sooner then the surfers. Next time Im out I am going to make a conscious effort to point them out 🙂 As far as ideas for other topics, I would love to hear about different types of boards and shapes. There seem to be so many options out there, and I feel like my My local shop will sell me what ever happens to be on the floor.
