chris have any more test runs on this fella?
one downside for me is i know NOTHING about futures
Could end up being an upside!
ha possibly.. i don't know what i'm going to do .. so many really good looking boards.. like the mb alot.. with the ...lost mini driver as well as the rocket v2 i'm going to be lost trying to decide on something to be a board to complement my dominator
i resisted futures, but nev was on them and happy, so that was good enough for me...wont get off them now..
I have never used Future Fins before until I started riding Firewire surfboards........now i do not have any boards with FCS and won't go back to them.
Thinking about the michel bourez MB_606Q 6' 6" 19 1/2" 2 13/16" 36.8L Squash.
Hows its rocker comparison, Will it be an easier paddle than the Hell fire? I have the Hell Fire 6-4 at 36.7L and I need to get it moving real fast on a glassy performance wave where is has no problems at speed and manuverability ~Love that board. Too bad the waves are subpar most of the time.
I weigh in at 200lbs, I am part Giraffe 6-6 with long legs, I have been really spoiled on the 6-4 Dominator 41.5L catching everything, guys in the water ask me all the time what I am riding lately. Dominator is great but I need that inbetween board for when its a little punchier but not quite HellFire glassy and hollow and more than the mushy light waves Dominator excels on.
I had posted this in another thread, but it was unaswered... any body?
I'd have thought the Michel Bourez board would be more suited to better waves than the Hellfire. Having not ridden one I couldn't say for sure, but the extra width in the Hellfire should give it an advantage.
That said, Chris said his 510 MB goes amazing from waist up to head and a half so maybe it does have more bottom end than you'd expect. Maybe that extra thickness in the MB gives it that extra scope.
yeah the Michel model, is a wider shorter high performance shortboard so its important to remember that you aren't going to be using this as a step up because it won't have the length. The hellfire has a unique shape with the diamond tail, and entry rocker, so I feel it goes exceptionally well in bigger surf. Look at the michel as being your go to shortboard in anything from waist up to whatever you are comfortable taking a slightly shortened squash into...
Hello Chris: Could you be more specific on the rocker of the MB model?. You said on an earlier post it had the same rocker as the Taj model. The rocker on Taj is very pronounced, i couldn't ride it propperly. My 6,2 Taj was so sensitive i coul'dnt make a strong bottom, the board went faster on one side than me and i always ended with my mouth or back in the water.
You have to be almost a Pro to ride that kind of rocker. I want to know if this is the case of the MB.
