Many of us enjoy a wave that provides an opportunity to just kick back and enjoy a solid trim.

What board / surf device do you feel provides an enjoyable trim?


Here are a few that come to mind:

10' Bob Simmons

A giant glider style board

A surf mat

Pig

Oh yeah. My trim machine is a 10'0" G&S Retro Redfin. Just a really pleasant glide and trimming experience, but it also turns pretty smoothly. One of my most memorable moments was on a head high wave that dished up a section that looked impossible to make -- I stepped up to the trim position and the afterburners kicked in, but less like a bucking bronco and moreso smooth like a Cadillac. I often use it as a ripple rider, although it seems to get better the bigger the waves are. (I've never gone more than OH though.)

I've had boards with a fair amount of rocker that still trim well, and I have had boards with no rocker that trim well. I think a bit of weight is a significant contributor to the feel of trim that I gravitate toward.
