Sure I was assuming. It does depend a little on how you like to ride, but a complete surfing feel (disengage kite) with either of these board in 2 feet waves will not work. In addition it will depend a little on how the wave is shaped etc. at 5 feet the global will excel. if you have a slow wave..ride it thruster, if you have a faster wave ride it quad. I also love to bump and jump that board. I think the 5'10 is the board of choice for Jaloo in the ksp.Manuel V wrote:Tautologies,
Thanks for your comments,
Just to be clear 2 to 5 feet "face" waves, so relative small to head high waves
not 2 to 5 "hawaiian" feet, you know what I mean...........
The comment on 5'10" size is because I'm relative short and light at 5'8" 160 lbs and
The global would be taller than me.
For paddle surf for 2 to 5 feet face waves I use 5'6" to 5'10" boards.
This is definitely key!!!Manuel V wrote:Tautologies,
This weekend I receive and offer on the 2012 Axon 5'8" and the global 5'10" that I can save good money. But I don't want to save money and buy a board that don't work for me.
Well, if you already have a board for the smaller stuff, and you want something for a little more aggressive riding, I think the straighter outline on the global will be a good one. It will definitely be surfy once it hits the 3+ foot, liking a slightly sharper wave. I like the globals a lot, I had the 6'0'' moving down to the 5'8'' this year not because it was too big by any means, but I just want one board for really powered stuff, since I am *well* covered otherwiseBy otherhand I know that I would not find the "perfect" board from the first try, that this is a curve of progression, adapt and learn. That is the reason that I was considering the global 5'10" I hear a lot of good feedback from that board..........
Hell yes. The Slater set is really nice!!!Manuel V wrote:Yes Naish OEM fins are not the cheap fins that normally
you receive when buy a new board from other companies.
I have the FCS Slater K2.1 5 fin set (quad or Thruster) and other fins sets
that I would like to try with the global.
Thanks for your feedback...........................
