To be fair it's only a couple of surfs old but... Any other board I've had new I can tell if it'll work and I can surf pretty much straight away. I'm 6'4 245lbs and been surfing 17 years most days. I normally ride a variety of longboards but have had several fishes over the years. I've bought the 6'4 potato, with MR in front and sf4 rears. Taken it out in 3ft slight onshore really rippable waves and I just can't get the thing on a rail to bottom turn, I feel like such a kook! I should be flying on these waves and instead I'm just stuck near the bottom with no drive and no rail, what the hell is going on? A couple more surfs like that and it's going, someone please help!!!
