Here is a photo of the new sleds that arrived a few weeks ago! Thought i give some feedback on both of them!! The Alternator is a 6'0 and absolutely flys! I think the slightly extra bit of foam and flatter rocker are suited to the waves down here in Vicco! Ive noticed that it has soo much drive off the bottom, and speed through turns, which def helps!! I also dont know why more people dont froth on the alternator? I havent surfed any of the newer models but does anyone agree with me when i say that such a solid all-rounder is almost forgotten amongst the more progressive new models?
The other sled is the 5'6 potatonator, and it is a massive improvement from my 76 peter sheely twin! Ive only had one good session on it with a small 1-2ft shifting beachy. It was strange at first to have so much foam and width under my back foot, but after a a while it was a godsend to get soo much drive and speed from an otherwise powerless wave. I think it has the perfect mix of surfability and fun...perfect for those days where you would usually struggle, and constantly miss sections and never quite get enough speed! everyone should have one!
Keep up the topics lads! The forum was such a good place to get information on everything firewire!
