Ok Rick, I was convinced an Acid would be my next board after demoing one.  But then you go and make things difficult with the Creek...and now the Flash!  I checked the dims on the 8'6" Flash on Seabreeze and it's only 3 liters less than the 8'7" Creek.   Can't wait to see how they differ in terms of plan shape, rocker, foil, etc.

Comparison test, right away!!

I was surprised that the Creek came in so close to the numbers of the Flash.... I would wait till the official sizes get posted, because some of the sizes given on Seabreeze may be off.

I have put in a requisition slip for a 9'3....  but Tino said they have a 9'7, so I may go that route, since this will be a board for when the waves are ON... and that usually means wetsuits for me.

My experience with Sunova's is, that all have a place. I use many of them, depending on conditions.... and there is always one that says "pick me"

Since yesterday morning I have ridden the 9'4 Creek, the 9'2 Skate, 8'10 Flow... all surf differently and bring their own fun to the session. The Skate has been the star both days.... such an amazing board to surf in the right conditions!

When I get some full board pics of the "Flash", I'll post them up!
