Blog review: You know it gets bad when the reporters write stories about the reporters. Well, it's that bad... it's been raining all day long with a stiff south wind two factors that add up to some stinky water for a few weeks. So time to get creative. Here's my review of paddlesurfing blogs and websites (more to follow if it stays flat):

Pono House Blog: Voted place I'd most like to sit around and drink a Mai Tai, learn how to fabricate a race car axle or paddle straight.
NC Surfer: Voted best place to go to see the largest, widest ranging, privately owned, collection of stand up boards in the continental United States. Best site to begin a conversation about the pros and cons of drinking a large cup of black coffee before crawling into your drysuit for a refreshing 4o degree surf session.
SRFNFF: Voted best place to log factual data regarding wind speed, wave height, patchouli concentration and sand flea migration count. Voted Most Optimistic Life Is Good blog and additionally a great spot to argue the merits of the Greenough foil versus the laminar flow characteristics of the retro hatchet fin.
StandUpZone: Shady, go-to standard for paddlesurfing fanatics featuring topics like: "More 'core: Black or Camo deckpad?", "Is it a breakfast burrito or a breakfast wrap and which one makes me paddle faster?", "Am I barreled if half my board and three quarters of my paddle is still sticking out?" and "So I bailed my board at Malibu, what's the big deal?"
