Nice video, thanks! However, it’s very hard and even sometimes impossible to understand what you are saying, for me, non-English native speaker, who uses spoken and written English in everyday job.

If you guys decide to add subtitles, take into account a hint, that subtitles can be autogenerated and added to vimeo without spending too much resources.

Hey Bohdan, really sorry about this. We have started looking into subtitling these videos. We will do it asap. And try and get it added to the previous ones too! Thanks for bringing this problem to our attention and reminding us to get it done! Happy paddling Reuben

Regarding coiled leashes… you can tightly wrap them around a brush shaft, alloy paddle shaft etc… and pour boiling water over the leash. This will rejuvenate the coils!

Bingo… Top comment Ciaran. You sound like the man who has stretched a lot of leashes ;-)) Really great idea.

Ha, ha, cheeky Reuben! We only use coiled SUP leashes on our flat water sups and even then, our 3 boys don’t tend to stretch them too much when spending more time swimming alongside the boards than paddling on them in the summer. The reason I know this works is because myself and a couple of mates were lamenting at the state of the coiled wing leashes and coiled wing board leashes. Wing and wing board leashes often get really stretched especially some of the wipeouts we’ve been having when perfecting our gybes. So we tried “coiling and boiling” around… Read more »

Yeah cool, I put them tightly coiled in a warm room and I have used a hairdryer on them too but I’ve never thought about the pouring boiling water over them. I might have to make this into a little video feature of course giving you the credit 🙂 ‘coiling and boiling’ got a good title ring to it!
Happy SUP, Winging, sailing and surfing

I’m the “guy from the States” that had the pump issue. For those interested, the Body Glove pump was not calibrating back down to zero. It’s “zero” was 3 psi, which accounted for the difference. I just didn’t notice it until I emailed Will who suggested trying a third pump. The second BG pump we have is accurate and confirmed the Thurso was correct. The single chamber BG pump just seemed more convenient (lighter), quicker and durable for “topping off” my board and tossing it around a bit. So now, I’m finally keeping my board pumped to the correct psi,… Read more »
