Anyone tried the duke 5,11 or 6,0 allready? Looking for a new surfboard. (85kg, 2-6ft waves.)

Does the 6,0 perform well in chop and higher winds? Is it still agressive in the turns?

Has anyone ridden the 136x44 gintronic? I'm looking into getting the Gintronic really soon, and was wondering if it would be a better size for me at 85kg? I'm guessing it would get me going way earlier than the 136x41 north sky pro I'm currently riding. I'm just worried about how it will behave in super nuking conditions?

I'm 72 kg and I ride a 133x42 gintronic and I like it a lot. I think the 44 might be too much in big winds though.

Something new.
Looks a bit like a Boardriding Maui Paipo and a blunt pitchfork.

It seems this one is called the Turbo.

There was a hint on Facebook of another new board.....a carbon fiber model of some sort.

Any info?

Hummm, Carbon fiber and Shinn do not fit in the same sentence. I would be extremely surprise to see a carbon board from Shinn.

But would it be better, worse, or just different?
