The larger nugget is pretty freaking amazing for small wave surfing. But the nose rocker is less than the FW baked potato making it pretty easy if you just regularly surf it on beach breaks.

it all depends on your weight, one or two sizes cant work for everyone and im sure if you are bigboy production boards will never be sized for you. ive lerned this the hard way, now i get boards made to suit and its greatly helped :thumb: I'm 230#'s int/advanced rider after riding a Sector 60 V2 for a while I want a light wind board for small junky waves and the Sector's really only do one thing well, goes up wind like no tomorrow but try to throw a bottom turn etc forgetaboutit! I'm getting a Strecth SuperBuzz :jump:

stretch boards are nice- if i was visiting my sister in Santa Cruz soon i would get one and carry it back. 200usd cheaper than production North, Firewire and Slingshot.

Why not the Mr Buzz ?

How are rockers for flat water speed and Lightwind?

Stretch and Trip at Real say the SuperBuzz will be a better Kite Surfboard instead of MrBuzz, i think it's a rocker thing. Those guys havent steered me wrong yet :thumb:
