compact is a real funboard, have a 5'5 carbon version quad setup....perfect board but the newer ones have a bit higher scoop...is better , but they do not make them this shortones anymore although the board has a huge range, with my 81 kg and 9M 7M 5M setup.flyingfishza wrote: ↑Sat Jul 01, 2017 5:49 pmI dont have the luxury of being able to test boards, no shops around where I am most of the time.
Looking for as the title says , light strong and snappy, for waves overhead to double, I know asking for the holy grail.
While passing trough Florida recently I laid hand on the airush compact bamboo, love at first feel, probably one, if not the, lightest board I had held in my hands, seems to tick all the right boxes but not really much in terms of independant reviews out there.
Wondering how it would stand up to a hard pounding being so light.

Other option is the north wam

For some reason weight never seems to be a given specification by manufacturers, well aware there may be slight variences due to manufacturing process but would it be that bad to give some guidelines.
Not married to to either option so would apreciate any input either way.
Wishing you wind and waves
