Just got my Baked Potato today (5'3 RF) after 3 months of waiting (!), and it looks hectic! Was so stoked to take it out for a paddle today (2-3ft mush). Handled perfectly, was super fast through the lines, tore up the swell. Was sooo happy!
However, I found that during my ride it had sustained a slight crack on the side of the nose - totally devastated! Was just wondering if anyone else had encountered softish rails, as I was surfing a beach break and really don't understand how the rail could have gotten damaged? Nothing of any significance occured: no massive wipeouts // spills, no drop-ins, nothing really that could have explained how it occurred (perhaps seaweed? there was a little // alot washing around inshore).
Have loved my FST Hellfire for the last year, and whilst I am absolutely stoked with the Baked, a little bummed that it occurred on the first ride and that I will have a week downtime for repairs. So, the high (great board, soo fast!) and the lows (damaged rail) of surfing!
