I’ve got a Zippi, everyone is right his boards pack a bunch of foam
I went 6’4”, figuring I would err on the side of too much foam rather than too little. Doesn’t bother me and I can still ride it even as I get into my 60s. Glad to hear Mike is still shaping them, a great design, super fun
Since the Harley Ingleby Moe got mentioned, I’ll chime in
I’ve got an 8’0, I’ve only got about 6 sessions on it but really like it so far.
I’ve ridden it in some ok and mediocre EC beach breaks ,waist to head high.
Paddles and catches waves great , very responsive on the wave , good speed and...
My wife and I are both in our 60s, we’ve been diligent since last may to stay home (retired) and wear masks wash hands, stay out of indoors and stay distanced. I just finished my radiation treatments for recurrence of Prostate Cancer last month. We are trying to get the vaccine but seems hard if...
The S fins reminded me of a set I’ve got on a quad fish
Check out the fins Robin Mair makes
Hanalei fins, definitely work well.
He has a website so easily available and he is a great guy
I’ve put several sets in my boards
More than worth the money
Apologize for the poor quality of the photos.
My 9’4” DaCopy Cat by Jim the Genius
Can’t say enough about what a work of art this board is, I had asked for twin stringers capturing the fin box.
Jim took it to the next level by tapering them over the length of the board.
With the scooped out step...
I started training 4 years ago, I was 57 at the time. I really enjoy it , as far as injuries- I’ve had a few smaller ones. The thing with BJJ is you can tap, if a guy is establishing an arm bar & you don’t know or cant ex3cute an escape , tap! There is no point in fighting to the death in...
Ha ha I was waiting to see if Ricksurfin answered. Nose riding is not something I am good at, and most of the waves I ride don’t really lend themselves to it. This board trims really well from the middle and front, turns exceptionally well . I like it for catching early trimming and carving-...
I have a 9’3” parallax. I like it , seems kinda like a mix between a hull (yeah I know it isn’t a true hull ) and a performance single fin. It a big board (78 liters I believe) but turns nicely, interesting bottom- all convex, no conclaves at all. Fast , glides through the flat sections easily...
Wondering what considerations other people use when sizing Longboards?
I’ve usually used 9’0 as a size for the East Coast beach breaks I surf, occasionally I’ll go up in size it it is a board more focused for the really small stuff we have
I was thinking that as I’ve gotten older (62) I should...
