I just bought these 7/5 Axxe booties one month ago. I've never had a warmer boot. They are more like a sock, the durability of the sole is TBD. They are easier to get on/off than regular booties with all the over-molded parts.
You can turn them inside out and they will be dry by the next...
In my earlier glider days, I had a regular Christension (came from Cuda) that was 11', very thin rails, and thin overall. It was fantastic. I used to call it the giant letter opener. I regret selling it. It is somewhere in ME.
The best spot (IMO) right now is Newcomb Hollow, which is closer to where you will be. Also, Marconi Beach. "Shark Season" is winding down for the year. But, don't surf alone. I haven't surfed alone on the cape in years and I surf there all the time.
Summer Sessions, up in NH, had one in the racks for months. I think 5'8"? What a fantastic looking board. Too small for me, but I admired it many times. Maybe someone here knows where it may have landed?
