I would highly recommend the ELF for your waves. It is a great down the line board and most of those waves on the south shore seem to have that characteristic. I think I remember in the old forum Nev saying he wished he had an ELF on the south shore. Steep bowls may be a problem, but on a normal day it would be perfect.
I had heard that the timber tech will eventually replace rapidfire tech?
haha right on! I'll have to follow to see more 5'4 cheater fives. I have definitely been stoked with it. So far no longboard this week!I did like the BP quite a bit too though-a little tighter.
Ok so I have had a chance to ride this board in anything from chest high upper trestles to knee/thigh high swells at home. I am pretty stoked. It definitely catches knee high east coast waves and if it gets a chance to get a speed line it will take it. I can't believe that I have been able to do fast and aggressive maneuvers on waves that I swore were only longboardable. I have had quite a bit of fun on it the last few surfs. It took me a little while to figure it out, but once I started using my back foot more it really took off. Shoot I have been so front footed for much of my surfing life I hope it helps my surfing more. I am definitely happy that my long board won't see the light of day as much haha. I also have the schmitter fins. Anyone have any experience with those? I have V2F4s as well but those are small for me as it is.
Regardless I am stoked. And the 5'4 is plenty of board.
Picked up a 5'4 spud from usedsurf for a good price. I got to demo the 5'5 baked potato the other day-fun board, it held pretty well in shoulder high waves, I probably would have gone the BP route but from what I can gather the SP goes a little better in the micro stuff. The volume on the 5'5 though gave me an idea of what I was looking for. SO glad I did not go for the 5'6 spud. Thanks guys. I put controllers on it and now I am just waiting for the right time to try it out. Can't wait to try those fins on the el fuego too. I'll post once I get a chance to try it out in some diverse conditions.
Yeah that paddle out to threes is not fun! First time I missed the channel a little and got stuck on a coral head I felt pretty haole after that one hahah. In my experience the 5'2 wasn't that great of a paddler. I am assuming it is just the length of the board, not necessarily the volume correct?
Iggy I surf mostly in NJ, but haven't done Maine, but I know you can relate to having the extra weight with the 5/4/3...two more months here with that! Hawaii boi I imagine this board goes insane at places like threes/fours?
I am going out to the west coast in a month. I am going to demo it one more time, but most likely will purchase one out there. I am hoping to find one in the white RF.
Thanks guys. I just wanted to see if it would work well in knee high stuff. I live on the US east coast so while at times our waves can get juicy ( and I have boards for that) , most times the period is below 10 seconds ( 6-8 more so). I demoed a 5'2 last year and it just felt meh it felt like my ELF almost would have been better. I didn't know if more volume would help in those types of waves ( I am 180...ride a 6'1 ELF). I was thinking even 5'6..although I know I could do a 5'4, I want all the help I could get with knee to waist high waves.
Also thank you so much for your contributions to this forum! It helped me greatly last time!
how small will this board go in?I would love to hear anyone's experience regarding this board in really small surf. How small was it? What were some of your waves like? I currently have a ELF and love it but I am trying to decide whether or not I want to buy a spud. I hate riding longboards...well I hate lugging the log is more like it haha.
