good feedback everyone!
My thoughts on this are that the Potatonator offers more rail and greater control in turing maneuvers and gives the surfer a little bit more of longer hybrid feeling. That is the major difference!! The Sweet Potato gets up and goes in smaller/softer conditions and rides a little more like a little plate, wider tail flatter rocker, wider profile, so its super fun and skatey.
They are both small wave boards, but these differences help surfers with different preferences get more of what they want in their small wave boards.
