Question re Vangelis' thoughts: Is there any reason I shouldn't just skip the Picklefork transition-phase, and add a dream board to my Olry? (I'll never get rid of the Olry - just curious if an even edgier board will allow me to stubbornly stick with my 2 lines -- perhaps forever!)
And - what are the dream boards that a guy who can stay upwind on an Olry and a 2-liner, but cann't do too much else, yet, should... dream about? I'm dreaming WaveTray 142 right now, but a Jarvis and Drake were also mentioned -- (too similar to my Olry?)
Thanks for the wisdom!
My reasons for adding the picklfork in between Olry and "dream board" (DB) were only financial. If this is not a concern I would jump to the "DBs" directly. You will progress much faster using these high performers, I've experienced it first hand.
I've tried the WT147 and it was alright (not as enough flex for my taste), the Jarvis I didn't like. I'd recommend you to try as many boards are available to you as possible.
In the SF Bay we are a few who ride X-Shooter 144 and 155 and we love them (a true "DB"). You are welcome to take a look and try them out whenever you got time. (email me directly so we meet at one of the local spots - maybe Crissy?)
I also hear LMG has a cool new design, but I
haven't tried it yet. The Jonah boards are also getting popular in the bay but I find them too stiff for my taste.
All the best,
