Hey there everybody! Great feedback and reviews on here! Got my first Firewire (6'4 hellfire) a couple weeks ago and I'm STOKED! still getting used to the meat. Guess I'm used to thinner, narrower boards. I find extra meat a bit odd and a lot to handle taking off when critical more so than my extra meat, lol Currently 41 yrs old, surfing 35 yrs, 5'11, 220 lbs, packed on about 40 lbs from being injured, so kinda kooking a wave here and there but moments of glory. The surf in HB has been overhead and unreal since I got my board but already thinking about the next one because this good surf can't last. I'm over logging, and SUP, which is fun but...
anyway If you had to have one step-down to grovel what would it be?
I know there isn't one answer so let's hear it! I'm open to hybrids but never really explored that avenue. A bro loaned me a Biscuit for four or so sessions last Summer and I hated it, even with larger fins. The flat turning deal is just, ehhhhh.
The new models coming out look exciting, but I don't really want to overlap much. I'm past that stage of the 14 board quiver, just too much!
MAHALOS IN ADVANCE!!!!!!!
