I m sorry for my bad english.
Hey Loris, how often do you surf?
For your weight I would consider the 5'4"-5"6"
Now if I were you I would take a look at the potatonator as well if you are into looking to progress and push your surf a bit further on small waves
165cms 89Kgs dry...working on that at the moment...but not working!!! :)
Potato 5'2" /Vanguard 5'6"/Potatonator 5'8"/ Spitfire 5'8" / Quadraflex 6'0" / Flexflight 9'0"
Fins: Elevons, Solus, Controlllers, Jordy,AM2,
How's your Sweet P going Suncoast?
Nice little pulse we had today (Sunday).
Hey cuttle, only got a few days to get into it, in that last swell period we had before it died,,,,,
(cant believe how flat it s been), but i suppose we were due for it after such a good run of waves,
First impressions, waves with some push the sweet p lights up, waves with lack of push i'm struggling to get it moving, probably just need some more sessions on it to sort it out,
Interestingly in the smaller gutless waves, i had no problem getting onto waves, just finding drive and speed was the problem. The sweet p felt like i was riding a container ship, actually felt like i could have ridden a smaller version, in the 3-4" moffs i scored for a few days in that last swell, the 5'8 felt great under foot.
no missed sunday(shift work) was there a few around? keen to let it rip again we get some swell
I took my 10 yr old daughter down for a surfing lesson and lo and behold the corner at Alex had some great looking chest high, clean ones coming through consistently.
Only had a 6' kneeboard and my 4'2" prone (pu) board so I took the kneeboard out for a paddle.
Unfortunately the Sunday longboard crew were working rotation on any and everything so only the odd scrap left for me.
Back to surfing lessons provided me with more stoke.
ohh man....longboard gangs are like biker gangs...
