yo dudes! how many replies here... I was out on an epic session today with my 7mt on a surfboard. I love surfing and I usually go strapless but today I've tried strapped and I have to say it was real tough on my knees. With overhead waves and chop of all kind (UK South coast style) it was a real killer for my injured knee, probably even worse than a twin tip.
Another vote for the blunt, I have completely trashed knees, and the landings are butter smooth. Plus, it's light so that it doesn't torque you around. Don't wear heel straps, and be sure and bail both feet if one comes out. Nothing like a nice lever arm to twist your leg around, with only one foot in the straps. Good luck!!
Can't wait to try the Blunt.. And yes I always kick my board off if I get stuck with one foot in it.. I also keep my straps quite loose for that purpose
Yo Rosen, how are ya? It's been a while since we last posted here... You reckon to give the Trax a go? I thought it was a stiff-ish board, maybe not enough for the freestyle junkies, who are probably after steel!!!
The Mako as I said it's great I'm just not sure about the construction as a demo failed under my feet
