Quote: If a board that has "more" volume helps you surf better is it really a crutch?
Who cares what the know-it-all wanabes ride. Unless you're an aspiring pro. My favorite board is 8 ft pop out epoxy...that's right folks, made in China. I'll catch more waves and have more fun than the any flondering shortboarder. I may add we usally have nothing more than mush and would go to my shortboard in better waves...maybe!!
-------------------- I've got my new horizons out to sea...
longboard, shortboard, hull, simmons, fish, 4 ft x 15 x 1.50, 5’9 x 17 x 2.0, 6 ft x... 7 ft x... 8 ft x... 16 ft x... single fin, twin fin, tri fin, quad, five fin, 20 fins it’s still about style, always will be you either have it or you don’t nothing else matters
-------------------- What fin sets work well with this board.
if someone has more volume and surfs better than you... maybe your on the wrong volume and you better check your CL's or Beers bro. Sounds like you lack proper volume. If I'm riding a 20cl hpsb and my bro,the same size and weight, is on a 23cl hpsb (and shredding) check the weight to volume ratio and you'll find that the fool is the one who strugles to catch waves and bogs in the flats unable to make it to the inside section to finish with a air reverse. Sounds like you might need to ask that guy who his shaper is and drop your's cause he's got you on a board that don't fit your skills. Or just go get a 5'9" of what ever Slater's on, ride it 5 fin and your good.
