I hope to report back soon. I just picked up a 5' 9" Black Dump Truck in Hydroflex XXX/Supercharger. There isn't much on the internet on this construction for kiting.airsurfer wrote:Anyone try these yet for strapless riding? Wondering if this is really a more durable surfboard that still feels lively and responsive.
I am interested in the Roberts ILL too. I am 76kg and I think the 5'10 should be fine or must I choose the 5'9?mike dubs wrote:I have the Roberts Ill in supercharger triple x construction. Had mine 10 months and ridden it a 100+ times. This is my 16th surfboard including North, Slingshot and Cabrinha production ones. custom boards, resin 8, Firewire and 3 BWS boards.
My Hydroflex is super strong, flexible and light 2.7kg with pads and fins. I don't pump mine up and its great in chop and cranked turns (I asked Rebstock, who rides them and he doesn't pump them either). Mine has been washed up on pebble beaches, blown down the beach, washed against groynes and jumped big and hard and looks like new. The beauty of them is the bond they create with the fibre glass and foam.
Only board that turns better was my Mulcoy BWS pro, but was always being repaired.
it's expensive to get shipped, but wont hesitate to get another, when and if mine dies......! May be a while!
I finally got out on my Black Dump Truck yesterday.airsurfer wrote:Thanks let me know how you like the Dump Truck.
