Just wondering you're thoughts of the performance/hybrid boards that are coming out. i.e, Hayden shapes - Hypto krypto, DMS - crumpet, firewire's performance/hybrids... Like all these 5' foot whatever and like 19 -20" wide.
Ive been surfing for around a year now, Gold Coast of Australia. And feel I have really improved, in turns, confidence, take offs you know the whole lot. Im currently riding a 6'0 sideways stock board which is thick and is almost 20 wide.
Im considering buying one of these performance/hybrid boards as I like the width, but I was wondering have any of you guys have ridden these types of boards in waves similar to Snapper, Kirra, Burleigh heads, South Stradbroke Island or just normal beachies out the front?
So yeah thoughts on boards like these opposed to everyday surfing at your local break, they say these boards can hold 6ft which I reckon would be a bit weird. (yes i know i still have alot to learn) Just if anyone has insight on these types of boards and would like to share that, it would be great!
