Shinn Dundee
Shinn Speedball v1 (v2 is meant to be better)
Shinn Turbo (Dundee replacement)

I have owned the Dundee and speedball v1, both are pretty good in the waves.
Have Turbo on demo, had one go on it so far, in waist to chest high waves. Pretty damn good so far

I also ride SB

Or SurfBoard ?

Can be great fun to spray waves on a TT yes :naughty:

I was trying to get Bob out of hiding
Got no advice myself
I am fully out of the loop with TT's
BTW today looks good again with our SE 15mph to make it #98 for the year
Wanna place your usual bet to see if i will kite all the remaining days in May to make it 100

P.S. Always very nice to hear from you :thumb:

Cheers DK

I pulled the trigger on a 2013 Tronic 144 wide. Got a great deal and from all the info I could dig up sounds like it should do the job nicely. Speedball and Mako also looked good .

Thanks for the your suggestions.
