I know what you are saying. It sucks to get a taste of something you would want to do every day, but work and geography keeps you from it.JaredS wrote:Thanks KY for the suggestion- I reviewed the specs on the RRD and it seems to be more geared toward light wind/flat riding. I am looking for a responsive board that can handle chop and hold a rail - then do a quick slash on a bowly section (very small prairie slab lol). Also something that had some pop for a bit of strapless puntin fun. i can hold my own on a shortboard so no worries about that. I have ridden a cab skillet on maui north shore which was amazing in those waves but sadly those days are few and far between for me...

Naish Global. It does not have quite the low end of the skater, but you can ride the board so loaded..and for the bump and jump stuff...when you ride it quad you knees will give in before the board does...ie. you can smack really really hard. It has 5 fins boxes and comes with straps, but will do fine without. It also comes with a boardbag and with really high quality fins (the ones that don't break when you go off the top of the wave)...and it is built tank like...JaredS wrote:Strapless and ideally a board with 5 fin boxes for versatility. The conditions here (canadian prairies) change quite quickly so one day I could be riding flat water and the next day will be 1ft wind chop. This board wont ever see a proper wave but still need to scratch that itch... Would prefer quad over tri if I had to choose. Bump and jump and smack a bit - couldnt have put it better myself..
