  • 1st ride on my 5'3 baked

    Just got my new TT baked potato in last week, and finally we get a little bump today. it was a bout 2ft give or take, mostly take today. Honestly thought I wasnt going to be able to get into anything as I was worried about the 32L of the board. I had a blast though!! I know my wave count was pretty high. It paddled so well into everything. I had a few fun workable waves with some good sections. But pretty much everything I paddled for I got into. So my overall thoughts are that it floats me suprisingly well, paddles like a dream, and has good drive and feel to it. I cant imagine how fun id be on a knee high+ day with some power!

        Another Josh in my club rode his 5'3 to great effect into the open finals, smooth as Curren radical as Bertleman, rode piddlers all the way to the sand. Certainly got me thinking...perfect for the low end grovel.

          yea had a blast considering the conditions. Im 5'9 and 150lbs. And running the fcs v2's. I think I could have went 5'1 but the extra float is good to have around these parts!

            most werent strong enough to ride in, but some would break, mush up, and if you could keep pumping enough you were able to catch the reform and take it in, I wasnt very far out though. Id say It did pretty well for being out there with sup's and longboards! I did ride a 5'7 tt baked. And that was a longboard to me, way too much volume for my size. It caught everything and floated me on top of the water pretty much but the ride itself was too boaty.

              The BP is truly a skateboard for the water and so fun in small surf - an essential board to bring to every surf check in my opinion.

                I currently enjoy taking out my PN on small days and that is a 504, but I will ride a 503 BP.

              First surf on my 5'5" TT BP this morning. Clean little 1-2ft runners big on shape, small on power. I got 4 quick waves and loved it!
              I'm running large Simon Anderson Quads and thinking about a knubster as well.
              It really is a skateboard but I love how when you direct it down the line it accelerates instantly.
              Floated my 95kg very well, nice and easy to my feet on these small waves.
              A whole lotta fun!

                Hi, I have a TT BP 5'3'', would like to sell it to buy the 5'5'' because I'm 84KG. anyone interested?

                I'm located in Sydney Australia.

                The conditions of the board are practically new, selling just the board with no fins.
