Just prematurely surfed my 6-3 Activator today, on crappy, dissapointing less than knee high slop waves to me. Now a 6-3 is the smallest board I have ever ridden, but I had no problems paddling it into these crappy waves and standing my 6-6 foot 200 pound long legged giraffe body on the board. There were no faces to manuver on, so I could not throw out any snaps, I did manage one good cutback that did not hang up.
I should have waited for real surf instead of slop that could have used a sweet potato or a long board. Trade winds are forecast to tuning for a swell thursday Head high. Will ride it again then.
