Thanks again everyone. So i have looked into the h-3s, are you riding as a quad with these or tri?
Great, thanks for the input. So, I noticed that the nexus h3s come in different sizes. Which would u recommend?
Thanks again, r
Yet another EF size recommendationGreetings,
New to the forum and want to get some input for my 1st FW purchase. Some background: Moved from San Diego, Ca to China 3 years ago so surfing chances now are reduced to a few times in the fall at some typhoon swell beach breaks in china (waist to HH average) and trips to Philippines, Taiwan, Indo, a few times a year. Also usually get back to SD in the summer. So I used to be an advanced intermediate surfer (4-5x/week average sometimes 2x per day) to surfing on holidays. Have gained a few pounds too. So paddle shape not as good but once up and going, I still pretty much have it. Love to ride fishy type boards and do well with loose boards (I think I surf real front foot heavy and often ride my thruster with a little center fin even in bigger surf successfully). Have outgrown (outweighed) my Merrick Flyer II (6'4"x 19 1/4 x 2 1/2) and just not getting much out of it since I have weight and lost some paddle fitness.
So, since I am in China and I need a new board for my christmas holidays, I am in the search. Was thinking that a 6'4" Spitfire would satisfy the small to medium wave range and then a 6'6" Hellfire for the bigger stuff. However, I can't get those now as I am stuck here. But I found a 6'3" El Fuego in Hong Kong that is not too much more expensive than the U.S.
Finally the question: given my surfing level now (intermediate to advanced intermediate) and weight (about 200 lbs or 92 kg) do you think a 6'3" EF is enough float etc... for me. I will use this board for China surf and when I travel and know that sizable swell is not on the forecast. Thinking that EF should handle about knee to a bit overhead and most average breaks. Will probably purchase a 2nd FW for my quiver (the 6'6" Hellfire) for more sizable swell.
I appreciate any and all replies, and my apologies for writing such a long post. Real excited to get on a FW after reading all of the posts here.
