Whats do you guys think is the wave height/hollowness limit for this board to ride?
Its a 7´0 hybrid 20 wide, and 2 3/4 thick at the center but its very thin at both the tail and nose, has a thumb tail and slightly nose rocker and kick in the tail.
I understand this:
The slack rocker is a bit of a problem for steep drops.
The dimensions make it hard to get out on big days
So i was wondering if it would be a good idea to get a regular short board for the bigger OH to Oh and a half days.
I was thinking of asking a local shaper to make a 6´5´´ 6´6¨size.
I am 5´10 and weight 160 pounds. I can catch small medium waves just fine i struggle in the head -OH days. I am currently having difficyuylties turning the funboard but i didnt have the same problem when i surfed a 6´5´´ shortboard before. (i had a diferent problem back in those days i struggled catching waves) But back in those days i only surfed chest high waves.
On big overhead + days the wave has more than enough power to stabilize the ride.
The funboard would still be used on small medium days and on mushy pointbreaks.
whats your opinion guys?.
And is the black beuty or the mx a nice shape to ask the shaper to copy? I tend to turn with both feet instead of doing the skateboard kicktail thing so i guess a front footed designed board would suit me better.
