Hi all, I am trying to decide if a chubby chedda is the right board for me? I am 5'11 and 66kgs and intermediate to advanced. I was really keen on firewires but ended up buying a Superbrand Vapour because that's what my local shop had. My previous small wave board was a Fullcircle 5'8, 19, 2.25 im not sure of the volume but I really liked the board. The vapour I just brought is 5'8, 19.25, 2.25 @ 25.45 litres.
While I think the volume is pretty good, the board just doesn't feel responsive enough. It catches waves real easy but it just feels real stiff/slow when trying to get the tail around on turns/cutbacks, really regretting the purchase.
I am looking at selling the Vapour and ordering the CC in a 5'7, 19, 2.25 @ 25.5l, pretty much the exact volume as the Super Vapour.
My question is even though the CC is the same volume would it be more responsive? I have heard that the tail is quite loose and responsive? I am aiming for a small wave board that is more like a shortboard made for small waves that you can throw around, rather than a performance hybrid such as a Spitfire.
Any help would be really appreciated, thanks guys!
