its a quad fish so itd be good for knee high to head high mushier waves for groveling and getting loose. Quad fin set ups are faster, and the deeper swallow tail gives you some extra drive, but the fatter shape wont be as responsive as a traditional high performance. So yeah this would be a good board for an intermediate surfer who likes to get loose on smaller less clean waves.
I cant be the only one who hates the way this board presses, but whenever i press a box i can feel the board rocking heel to toe under my foot because of the 3d camber. Same thing with carving into a jump, when you go to flat base you just wash out. It was a good idea rome, hopefully youll get it right next time around.
I snagged a pair of these expecting mediocre gloves, but these puppies are WARM and COZY and the palms are super durable on tow ropes too! Grippy enough to yank your grabs hard and fresh looking too!
So far so good having put them on maybe 15 hours of park tow rope sessioning. BUT, the seams busted near the thumb and the velcro closure ripped off. The palms are good, but the actual quality of the glove is disappointing.
By far a longboard. Look for something about 2 feet taller than you with lots of foam (wide, thick, full nose and tail.) The more foam in your board (the bigger it is) the easier it is to paddle around and catch waves with. Being a beginner, you need a big board so you can learn to catch waves and to turn across the face of the wave and actually ride it. Shortboards and Fish shapes are significantly smaller, and are nearly impossible to learn to paddle and catch waves with. They are made for performance surfing where you need something shorter to turn sharply and thrash with, but they cant be paddled in on smaller waves and ridden straight, they simply dont float enough at low speeds. Short boards depend on speed for them to plane across the water, so if you buy a short board you will have to learn to surf on big powerful waves, going fast, with not nearly as much wiggle room with your footing. GO WITH A LONG BOARD!
After breaking last years model, technine warrantied it and sent me this one for free. Today was my first day on it and its the same amazing park/jib board as the last one. super buttery flex but still has tons of pop with the carbon stringers. Surprisingly lively and responsive ride for a softer jib oriented deck. Took it off some 30's and 40's today and it was fine, not squirely at all. Very predictable and tons of fun. Only reason it receives four stars is because the model from last year snapped in half after putting about 20 days on it, but so far so good with this one!
Pretty darn warm, insulated in the vest area. zip pocket on the chest with a rivet to feed your headphones to the inside. Thumb holes on the hoodie style sleeves. Decently waterproof. Snaps on the hood to close it tight around your face with the hood up or around your neck with the hood down to keep your neck warm like a baclava. Its all around DOPE!
great looking, comfortable, and super warm. Decently water proof, and inexpensive. What more could you ask for?
Super good right out of the box, virtually no break in time, and EXTREMELY LIGHT WEIGHT. Great support behind your calf but extremely tweakable going forwards and side to side. Perfect boot if you want to shred park or street, yet it still has the support to hit jumps and haul ass on groomers. Its the perfect boot, in my honest opinion.
when they are fresh out of the box, they flex nicely and are pretty comfy, but they arent the most durable. Ive broken the heel cup on them and prior to that ive found tons of cracks through the plastic to cap. As far as durability goes, they pretty much suck. Sorry flux.
HANDS DOWN, SO DOPE, CHECK THE 2012 REVIEW FOR MORE
This is what i thought the first 3 months :Seriously my favorite board I've ever ridden in my entire life, and I've ridden dozens of decks. If they made these with a sintered base, there would literally be no reason not to ride one. Soft enough to press through kinks with ease, yet stable enough to throw cork 7s and haul ass on east coast groomers, and still forgiving enough to learn whatever trick you want at whatever speed you want. Literally THE BEST PARK/JIB/STREET/CRUISING ALL MOUNTAIN SLAYING board on this planet, and probably better than other planets boards too.
After riding this board for 3 months, I noticed the core creaking and making popping sounds. Next came the spider web cracks all throughout the top sheet, and finally the board snapped in half hitting a gap to boardslide. This boards durability is pathetic, I mean seriously, focusing a snowboard after 3 months is pathetic. Step it up technine before you lose even more customers.
super comfy ankle cuff, very secure on your leg and on your board, and has lasted over a year with no problems. If they sold these with candy, it would literally be the perfect package.
Mostly surfing Charleston SC I have knee high mush day to day, with occasional swells getting head high. This thing is the bomb for groveling through the mushy waves. Has a decent amount of foam to paddle into weaker waves, thinner rails for a more responsive feel, and although its a wider board, it has a nice rounded out tail, giving you more control turning and making powerful turns easier. Future 5 fin set up is the best, hands down. In my own opinion, Futures have a more sturdy fin box than fcs, and I've never had a problem with Futures. Superbrand also has super sick airbrush designs, I have yet to see an ugly Superbrand board.
this board is super long and skinny for a fish, and rides nothing like a fish. It turns like a fun board, has more stability with thrusters instead of a two fin fish set up. I don't like the way it rides on rail and its too much of a log for my liking. Plus epoxy is a wreck to fix, expensive and looks ugly when fixed.
Yeah they do.
i would say pickle if i were you
buy a cheap plastic cutting board and make one! thats what i did to make rails for the middle for board slides!
you can never go wrong with oakley fire lens!
CAPITA STAIRMASTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've shredded this line out of toledo ohio for 5 years now!
