Surf Board! Input!

Postby whitey68 » Mon Dec 31, 2012 4:30 pm

Im 210 to 220 just curious which surf boards will work the best for me in waves, chop with great up wind abilities. A board that flies well wouldnt hurt either soooo, let me know thanks, Whitey :thumb:

I'm 245 lbs. tried lots of surfs. Getting ready to try Nugget soon. Will let u know. I decided a few months ago to have John Amundson make me a Custom. Best decision I have ever made buying boards. He can design board for exact conditions where you ride. All production boards I tried in past are designed for much light people. Most. Had WAY to much rocker for me. I ride on East coast of Fla.

Just my 4 cents!

you gotta give us a little more..otherwise everyone will say oh this one...there are so many different conditions to ride.

wave, chop, flies well (dunno what you mean), geat upwind...

I'll give it a stab...the biggest Naish Global. It will not be super for light wind..but pretty good, but it will rip in most conditions, and definitely in chop. Upwind like a dream on the quad set up....
