Awesome trip Ken-

I had a buddy that supped in LA that just moved to Eugene but sold his sups.  Knew there was a reason for him to keep them! Could have probably hooked you up!

Hope all is well!  PS- got 4 miles the last 2 days in a row in your NSP! Been loving working out on it.

Whoever e-mailed me about the Wedge (Ed?) try sending a PM on here for me to answer.   The email adress the message came from was an automated Zone address I cannot reply to.

RNB goes in anything. on the one I had the deck was domed but just very slightly.  Not rearly as much as say a Sunova board like the Flow or Casey.

The Flow has a flat deck.  You must be thinking of the Speeed.

Badger- You are right.  mixing up models.   i was thinking of the Acid.  Too much fun to choose from at Jim's Extreme Windurfing Sunova Demos.

agree- Also had a 8'8 RNB @ 215 lbs (at the time)   way too big for you.  It was even too big for me in full winter gear (132 L) as a shortboard

The RNB is an amazing all terrain shape.  if you ever get into some juice....you wont want the New Deal especially if this is your one board quiver.

If I may jump in on the conversation, would you consider the RNB a good (US) east coast beach break board?  (Assuming you are east coast from screen name).   Did you consider the B-Line at all? (I like the outline, but unsure if the rocker would make it too slow for east coast conditions unless it's really pumping).   And since you have th RNB, is the decked domed any or is it somewhat flat?

Thanks for any comments!

I have a Genration Wedge which is very similar to the B-Line and you are spot on with your rocker comment RE east coast waves.

its VERY rare that that board gets out (needs at least a waist high wave and clean conditions)

I would not consider a B Line as your only board on the east coast.  I consider that a quiver board for sure. 

RNB goes in anything. on the one I had the deck was domed but just very slightly.  Not rearly as much as say a Sunova board like the Flow or Casey.

RNB is a fantastic option on the east coast if you can only have one board

Hope that helps!

I have both RNB and New Deal but in different sizes: 8’4x30x120l and 10x29x139l.
I am 6’4 and 235 pounds.

Both are great boards but completely different.

RNB is a very fast board that for me works best in small to medium waves. Very dynamic and you want to surf it actively.

New Deal is a high performance longboard and you need to surf it as one - trimming, active footwork. Very versatile- works well in a very wide range of conditions from small to double overhead.

Despite 20l volume difference both boards are very similar in stability. New Deal is very stable. RNB is incredibly stable.

The 8’8 RNB will be way to big for you. To get the performance you need to go as small as possible with RNB. No more than 20-30 liters over your weight in kilograms.

New Deal will be more versatile and will work better at higher weight to volume ratios.

Creeeeek! happy birthday buddy!!!!

Hoping to get another session with you during 'family vacation' at the cape this summer.....

I think my wife now accepts I will scoot out a few mornings to grab some waves with you!

We ended up on United. Went out from LAX so it was free going, just regular bag free’s $40 & $50 second bag etc. flew back into NJ and was charged $130 and $140 two bags with 2 boards in each, so not to bad for riding your own boards!

United's free california surfboard rule is so enticing for anyone living in CA.   Its amazing it will cost $150 buck each way to get a board to Florida from NY  But EWR to LAX is free (or $40 with no credit card or status)

I had a pre covid trip to LA last Feb and brought my 6'4 shortboard for no other reason than it was free and surfed three great mornings at El Porto before meetings!

He must be talking about the Sunova Wedge, not the Starboard Wedge.

Whoops!  Yes- I was talking about the Genration (Sunova) Wedge.   I had no idea Starboard came out with a model with the same name.  Sorry!

I had the same journey.  went too small and realized I lost all that was fun about sup.   I stepped back....sold a ton of boards and now have two.  Great conditions: 8'2 Genration wedge. (118L) Everything else.... 8'0 l41 ST. (128L)

I wasnt a beliver that the L41 could be a 'shortboard' until i rode it.   im heavy enough to bury the tail...but its just parralel enough to be great in mush and chop.  I dont feel the instability issues others have mentioned. and the shape is fast, fast fast.  No need to bottom turn if you dont have the right wave to get speed

I'd keep the performance shortboard  you have and look into a totally differnt shape for mush and chop.  Just my opinion of course.

As an FYI I traded a traditional 'surfboard' shaped 8'2 130l for the l41 and was VERY happy I did.

ive surfed older generations of the SB pro and own the 8'2 wedge.

what specific questions do you have?

IMHO the wedge is the next gen in performace sup.  To ride a SB pro the way you ride a wedge youd barely be able to stand on it to get the same performance

check out the Genration boards- specifically the Wedge.   I'm riding a 8'2 x 28 x at least 4.5 (Genration doesnt list thickness) at almost 230lbs in winter gear floating above the water and 'semi' stable at 118l. which is crazy volume for an 8'2 x28

its a full on performace shape but they figured out how to make you able to stand on a surfboard.  most dramatic stepped rails i have ever seen and by far (in the middle) the thickest and it works....well!

Gear Talk / Re: new fin setup for JL Super Frank
« on: November 02, 2020, 01:29:29 PM »
How many fins did your Super Frank came with? My 8' SF came with 5, one is a center fin (same 4.5" as the rest). I do prefer the thruster setup over the quad in general.
I bought mine used and it only came with 4 JL fins. How do you like the SF with the thruster? Have you tried it in 4'-6' waves? I'll snag an inexpensive Ho Stevie thruster setup and try it out. Then probably try out the nubster (found one for $16 on Amazon) and see how that goes with the quad fins in.

Def. try the nubster and the quad first.  Easy experiment for a couple bucks and I run one all winter on my quad for a little extra hold. Plus very easy to find rather than a single large center futures fin.

Also- Pass on the Ho Stevies.  I get it- they are cheap- but they all break.  I broke a set I had as 'emergency fins' on my prone board the first day out while i was lending a set of fins out

Hey Badger, yes on the sessions page about mid way down.

I will say I’m intrigued by sups with the step deck.  The Flow 2.0 and the l41’s.  I believe Caribsurf was selling a l41 Bruce Wayne that if I had the money would have jumped on it.


LB not to thread hijack but my only two sups now are step-decks.  8'0 l41 ST and a 8'2 Genration wedge.  Both pronounced and not subtle steps.

You can grab either anytime you want to give them a try since I usually cant make dawn patrol with the kiddos anymore to board swap in the water.
