It was also the wrong tire for the bike, I understand, being a 100/90 which is more suitable to a YZ 250. So, I'm trying to figure out if the number of paddles was the big difference or the other tire dimensions?

it rained on wed and thurs so the sand was still a little wet on fri and it bogged down a little in the hard stuff but this morning (sun) it was stellar when it got softer.
i think the ribs on the king paddle definitely help with the straight line stability. i ran next to a guy in on a honda 450 and he was all over the place.

Saturday was windy, and the sand was pretty firm, at least to me in my limited experience in the sand.
I'll check out the kings, because I was all over the place with the Cheng Shin
pressure does make a big difference, i run down around 8.
geometry makes a biiiig difference too. i push my tubes all the way down in the trees for the sand. its a big help with stability.
yeah...saturday was crazy windy. you really couldn't even be outside without goggles on for most of the day. nice thing was that it ran lots of people off and sunday was much nicer and less crowded. i didn't see too many wr's out there (one 426 and one or two newer wr's and a yz or two). were you out there all weekend or just sat? mine had a desert tank and a luggage rack with a little tool bag.
nice little jump on the mini-dunes on the north side

But, I'll be back for sure, and with a better paddle!
