Brunotti Onyx

Postby Chris1973 » Tue Nov 11, 2008 9:12 am

This is a short review of the Brunotti Onyx board 136x40.
By no means expert but i'll try to share some light here.
Kitting for 1 year in mostly choppy / gusty conditions.
Weight 90kg.
Boards: now Brunotti Onyx 136x40 and waiting for the Mako wide 140x40.

First impresions:
Just got this board and right out of the box is definetly a looker. It's a woody with some very nice black graphics on it (looks like tribal or maori, i don't know). Nice abs sidewalls, nice and comfy straps with mid soft deck pads and G10 fins. The overall feeling is that this board is a touch too soft. The weight of the board is actually quite light, maybe one of the lightest boards i've ever seen.

On the water.
16-20knots and quite messy chop (as usual). The board might feel too soft in land but on the water it's actually not that much soft. i would say mid soft (like the 555 i had) and definetly a chop eater, very comfortable on the knees and the pop is not that bad at all. I found the upwind drive off this board quite good , maybe helped by the small concave on the bottom.

Overall a quite nice allround board.

Wow, i actualy like the 08 graphics better.
I think i'll grab also an 08 pro-x when the 09s come out and the prices of the 08s drop.
