Hej Peter,
Enjoying the epic Scandinavian summer? Water is so clear, but warm too.
Just ordered the Moses 633, so stoked to try it asap.

Can you pm me and show me your favourite spots in Denmark?

I am riding a 94cm aluminum mast and fuse with LF Impulse wings in ocean surf (shoulder high to overhead beach break) and bay swell. I used to run away from breaking ocean waves but have started to chase them cautiously. Have used a short 47cm mast but bottoming out was a problem. I prefer the long mast in waves for this reason. Have not tried a 70 cm mast.
