I thought about real double enders, which could be rode in two directions, one tail (front) wider than the other, but never build one. What I have done were collapsibles, 3 piece, even 4 piece. they rode well, but are tricky to build and to taking them apart and together takes minutes, and they are difficult to get really watertight. One piece of each board sucked…
but finally, I would use my Midlenght 8‘0 Colapintail Clone, for me it works for all my needs from flat to headhigh
My travel board has always been a sub 6ft Fish. Works in grovel conditions which seems to be what I find most of the time. If it gets good, still a great option.
Cause of it’s size, been able to pass it off as a Boogie board to not get charged a bunch of times. Fits easily in a rental car.
That Mabile Twinzer, MeatheadDeath has currently for sale, would be an excellent choice!
7’6’’ reBowls would be mine, it’s such a good all around we that works from knee to well overhead under my feet, definitely my choice for a one board quiver
I did travel to Costa Rica last year with a 5’10 liddle burrito and a step up, I ended up taking the burrito out every time with its great paddle power, side bites, and just always a good time. The convenience of having a sub 6’ board while traveling shouldn’t be underestimated particularly with small planes and rental cars. Far more versatile in terms of transport so I wouldn’t hesitate to grab the burrito again if I wasn’t sure on size limits
This is true... fits in the luggage gaps on buses too. I travelled all the way from Rio to Bahia in Brazil on bus with just a Jim Banks fish. Only time it got skittery was at chunky Saquarema, other than that, all good. (The board, not the bus... the buses were often skittery)
