Hey All, Reaching out for some input. A very brief background: grew up logging in Florida, never surfed anything under 9'6. Moved to Ventura, CA in August and picked up an 8'5 Hot Generation for bigger days at the point and fell in love right away. What I'm looking for: I'm in love with driving the hot generation from the middle and connecting sections that I could never make on the logs I grew up surfing. The only thing that I'm missing is the feeling of getting back on the tail for quick turns that I love on my pin tail logs. Can anyone weigh on on a board that I can surf from the middle with a nice, narrow stance and still be able to drop some weight through my back foot and surf a bit more vertically than my hull? I'll be surfing mostly long point waves of C Street and Rincon but also want something I can throw around in the beach breaks in our back yard (living one lane up from the dredge in Ventura) Hopefully all of this verbiage makes sense. Thanks in advance for any input!
