Yes, they take off easier than shortboards, but they're very loose (ie unstable), and also lose drive very quickly so you have to work them rail to rail to keep them moving. They're also utterly unsuitable for headhigh waves as they dont have enough rocker.

Thibb wrote:Drowningbitbybit, you don't make them sound very appealing as transition boards. What kind would you recommend for someone who is used to a 7'2'' minimal but wants a bit more maneuverability without losing too much foam. I've been thinking about a new board for three months now, but I just don't know what type to go for.

all true apart from you can use them in head high waves as long as theyre not steep pitchy head high waves.

Also Drowningbitbybit, you have a 6'6 hybrid, I'm just curious as to why you chose that over say a 6'6 short board design? Would it be your day to day break is better suited and if so why?
