    You think this particular comparison works while showing them on two different waves?

    I don't think the comparision works. Pretty sure the second video is Florida beak break not a point and Justin Q would kill either wave on a barn door. I liked both videos thanks for posting. I got a JP pig and a SWT currently in production from JP so it was still nice to see the 2 videos even though both of my boards will be used in sloppy beach break waves.

    I think I would generally agree with the description, and I think some parts of those clips do seem to exemplify each of those boards. You're right though -- there are a lot of different variables between the two videos besides just the boards. Without someone having ridden both types of board themselves, it may be hard to see those examples and fully get it.

    A semi-related story: Last time I surfed, a guy asked me how I liked my board (Phillips pig). I was telling him how I loved it, and I mentioned that it likes to sit right in the pocket without outrunning sections like some of my other boards tend to do. I meant that it was a nice attribute, so I was a little puzzled by his disappointed sounding reply: "Ahh, yeah. Must be all the drag from that big fin. Ya gotta get a fin like this instead... [lifts board to show me his cutaway fin]." With that, he spun around to take off on a wave, and he promptly got swallowed behind a section that the pig would have easily made. I wasn't saying that the pig gets outrun by the wave, but moreso finds its own little zone of equilibrium within the wave. Outrunning also isn't necessarily a negative attribute for my other boards. It's more a matter of understanding the tendencies of each board and riding them accordingly.

    Describe a color you've never seen... People always say my boards are too heavy, too round, too flat... Sigh.
