  • Thanks SeaCliff, awesome info in there. I feel like I'm always on the right board with my GH twin, from a paddling and buoyancy perspective. It's just that once I'm up, I wish I could be more aggressive and vertical. which is certainly not what a fish is meant for, even though some very skilled surfers can make it happen. It seems like in general you just sacrifice a little of one thing for the other.


    The neckbeard and new flyer both look great from a template standpoint.

  • Step a bit back on the GH. And thank me later.

    Oh and get another board. The answer is always to get another board...

  • SeaCliff - that was a fantastic post. You can always tell who SeaCliff is on the beach because he brings his entire quiver every time he surfs - there will never be another session he wishes he could have back...


    glasspeak - don't know if you got a board yet, but there's a HyptoKrypto in the for sale that looks like a great deal if you don't mind the ding on the bottom. Looks like perfect size for you as well...

  • Please allow me to say Seacliff is constantly on the wrong board. He has at least 15 logs and refuses to ride most of them. hey Seacliff bring a step up, here he comes sMe old birch quad.  ;D I half kid.
    That said the most high performance surfboard for new York is what ever you normally ride and a plane ticket to somewhere with surf for a couple of weeks, your everyday sled will feel like a rocketship

  • If your looking for a long board, I cannot praise my high performance Becker 9'3 Briggs model. nothing works like my boards for the east coast. works on small summer surf but gets me in some barrels many might not come out of. love tat thing.

  • This interview below with Pyzel is helpful to this discussion, especially the volume in liters question.  Rocker (to me) is as important and maybe more important, or at least more noticeable than volume. I can get down to the low 30's/high 20's without giving up much as long as there isn't much rocker.
