Bobby takes his 5’6″ x 19″ x 2 5/16″ New Flyer for a spin at Rincon
What quad fin set up is bobby running on the swallow tail? cheers.
Weak, he doesn’t do Superman Airs, Reverses, and Flips like all the young kiddies on every wave these days.
Currently in small surf (up to 4 foot) I´m ride in a 5´8 x 19 1/8 x 2 5/16 New FLyer and for better waves I have a 5´11 x 18 5/8 x 2 1/4 , 26,3liters Driver,Wider Round Pin tail, shaped by Mayhem. Now I´m looking another board for average surf and I´m undecided between the 5´10 x 18 7/8 x 2 1/4 Fred Rubble and the 5´10 x 18 5/8 x 2 5/16 T-Low ??? What´s your recommendation? Thank you.
based of the information you provided, the Rubble at 18 7/8 seems the best choice as it fits nicely between your 2 current designs and dims.
I am heading down to Costa Rica in July/August. I am looking to order a step up for the trip. I currently ride a 6′ 1″ X 19 3/8″ X 2 7/16″ FR. What do you think would be a good step up for me to ride? I am an intermediate surfer. I want to get a 6’4″.
I forgot to mention. I am 6’2″ tall and weigh 175-180 lbs.
For a step-up the tried and true formula is take the dims of your favorite short board (the FR) lengthen, and add a round pin.
So 6’4″ x 19 3/8″ X 2 7/16″ FR roundpin for “good waves’
You will have to roder this custom, so please ask for the board to be built “for good waves” so the shaper knows to pull the tail in to reduce the lift.
I currently ride a 5’11″ New Flyer and love it. Is anyone riding a step up version of this board?
If you have a specific board model question, please refer to the individual board page and leave your inquiry there. Thank you!
