Based on your statements above, I'd personally avoid the Shinnster (for now). The Shinnster is more of a "quiver" board imo.Alysum wrote:I'm 82Kgs and like to ride in flat water/chop/small swell with a view to progressing to wave kiting in the next year. No jumping or tricks at this stage, I've never been a surfer and still need to completely nail the transitions on a directional & be totally confident before progressing to small/medium waves.
The Shinnster looks like a fun board and I was wondering whether that would be a good board before getting a proper wave surfboard in the future ?
Another thing is that the Shinnster at 160cm is relatively smaller than a SB which is better for travelling and tougher than a SB (planning on a world trip next year). It's not just a light wind specific board is it ?
Firewire Vader/Vanguards seem to be popular boards as well, I have no idea what size I'm looking at though.
Any tips appreciated ! Cheers.
