Anybody ridden it?
Thinking of getting a new board and i have a 2012 custom and a nobile nhp (not sure of the year) a few years old though.
I love the custom when the wind is cranking but takes a bit to get going so i usually end up taking out the nhp.
The new Custom looks like it would be a bit better in slightly less wind than the old one.
But then maybe its the thick and heaviness that i like about the 2012. I seem to be able to be really aggressive with it. Evan on the beach i have no problems just throwing the thing down. It seems indestructible! I would never treat me nhp the same way =)
Anyway to the point:
Whats the rocker like on the new one? (i like big rocker)
Is it as stiff?
Does it seem as tough n strong?
There is a shop i can go look at them but its pretty damn far from where i am and i cant be assed to be honest.
So any info would be great.
I tried, it was the first time on a custom for me so I cannot compare with the past customs.
In summary is now on my wish list. Best board that I tried that test day by far.... super smooth in the chop and very good upwind. However they told me that the old custom is more similar to the custom cbl.
It was easy to edge hard and jump, soft landings although the board is stiff.
give it a try, I think for strong wind a choppy sea is the perfect choice.
