Pigs are fun.
are you nuts? Riding a classic noserider and a tyler, but wanna add a pig?
whats wrong with you?
I hate pigs, with my guts. I have a couple of them. Modern pigs.
They are only good when the wave has a punch, and speed. If not, they are turds.
But I guess you have those waves daily in Cali. Here in RI, not at all.
I would get a JP noserider, or a Coop.
Exactly what I’ll be riding it in. Set the line and run.
I found that my modified Pig Styled after the Takayama/ Nat Young pig That was built in the 1990s was one of the most versatile Boards I ever owned. Worked well in beach break slop and was stellar at Cardiff and Swamies. Great memories of surfing it at Church on a very small day.
My first surfboard was a 9'2" Con pig shape from around 1964. I never really bonded with that board. It looked beautiful, but I thought it was a dog. On the other hand, my friend had a 9'6" Hobie, a very early 60's pig shape that was one of those magic boards. Therefore it's the luck of the draw I suppose. I had a 9'8" Bing Nuuhiwa Lightweight that is more of a modern pig template based on the Magic Sam board and in my opinion is arguably the best longboard to come out of that era. There is something to say about those boards that have to wide point back from center.
Tenfooter’s comments were entertaining. Hating an entire design based on a few experiences from a niche is pretty classic.
One has to be careful about discarding any design based on a few bad experiences. I have found that you can have very similar shapes and there will always be that one board that stands out from the rest for some reason. It's one of those things where the end result ends up greater than the sum of its parts.
Wine me, dine me, and then swine me. I’ve found that wide point back longboards work best for me in beach break.
