Title: WTB: Von Sol Flying Manta
Post by: Mayday on March 22, 2018, 02:34:54 PM
Show me what you got, if anything.  Looking for something in the 33-36L range. Usually in the 5'2 to 5'6 range.  Ive seen a bunch of these get passed around over the years and im looking to take a turn.

Canít seem to find one though. Would order new but trying to sell my no friends first. Contemplating a Hydrodynamica mini Simmons instead but donít know how good of a groveler it will be.

You are correct in your pause... MS arenít as flicky and maneuverable as a Manta. The Manta is firmly in my top two fave grovelers.

@Mayday what size did you land on?

A stock 5í4 in the wired tech (no idea on volume) And right now Iím regrettably in the 180lb range. Try to shed a couple before summer but surfed it Monday in marginal conditions and it floated me great in full winter gear. Board just flies. Hoping for another shot on it in some bigger stuff later.
