Gear Talk / Re: 2011 Naish 9 mana for a beginner?
« on: April 24, 2017, 03:42:22 PM »
Thank you all for the great advice and education. I will definitely spend time demoing boards. I am also going ahead and purchasing the 2011 9'5" Naish mana since it is wider and fits the formula Night Wing outlined.

I am going to start taking lessons next week with Randy@ Rudee Inlet Stand Up Paddle. I spent a long time on the phone with him today. He thought the 9'5" Mana with it's width being 31.5 and volume 163 a good board to start with.

Once again thank you all for your feedback. I was just about to pull the trigger on the Naish 9 mana which would have been a huge mistake.

Just to throw a wrench into the discussion. I just found a Naish 9'5 x31x4 3/4 on CL would this board still be to small? I think the volume is in the low 160's.

Sound advice... There is this Tom Carroll 11x32.5 three fin for sale on CL here. Given all the feedback probably makes more sense for me, rather than the 9 mana.

I will also contact Randy @ paddleboard VB and get some lessons in before heading down to the OBX

As for my location in the OBX I'll be staying close to Oregon Inlet.

Thanks for all your guidance, really appreciate it. To be clear, I am a raw beginner and do not know how to surf. Sounds like this board might be a bit to aggressive for me.

Since I am starting basically with no experience what should be my length, width, volume guidelines be in looking for a board. I do plan on demoing all summer but would like to have a board of my own also. I'm figuring it makes sense to try to find something used as my first board.

Besides the fact that I will be living on the beach at the Outer Banks for two months and SUP surfing everyday, I live close to Virginia Beach so have access to get on the water four to five months out of the year.

I will definitely demo boards and lots of them!  I have a chance to pick up the 2011 Naish 9 Mana for $450.00. I was thinking that besides demoing boards, I should have a board of my own. I doubt I can use a demo board everyday and I will be at the beach for two months.

One of my questions about the this 9 Mana is whether as a beginner weighing 175 (80kg) whether the volume of 140 is enough. The current owner of the board says he weighs 140 but knows others that weigh up to 200lbs using this board.

This is my first SUP surfboard so I have not used any other boards. I fooled around on a couple of flat water boards last year in the Ocean just paddling around for about a week.

I will be spending July and August in the Outer Banks and will be SUP surfing everyday.

I'm a beginner to SUP and SUP surfing and am thinking about buying the 2011 Naish 9 Mana 140L. I weigh 175. Two questions, is this a good board for me to be starting out on and does this board have enough Volume for my weight?
Thanks for your responses.

Gear Talk / 2011 Naish 14 Glide thoughts on a new fin.
« on: April 06, 2017, 12:02:09 PM »
I just purchased a 2011 14 Glide that has the original fin. With all the advances in fins since 2011 I am looking for recommendations for a more up to date design. I've attached a pic of the original fin.

Gear Talk / Re: 2013 14 Naish Glide vs Boardworks Eradicator.
« on: April 06, 2017, 03:15:58 AM »
I pulled the trigger on the Naish. PonoBill you were right on target with the price. He originally had the board priced at $850 then dropped it to $795. I offered him $500. and used the feedback you all gave me as rational for my offer. He wouldn't go that low but we settled at $550! The board is in nearly perfect condition, only has a small scratch on it.

Now I need to figure out what paddle to buy!

Thank you all for your guidance.

Just when I was about to pull the trigger on the Naish, a 2014 Riviera 404 Zedonk 14 just came on the market for $500 in my area. How does this board compare to the Naish I'm considering still remembering that I primarily want a board for DW.

Since I live by Virginia Beach my plan is to focus primarily on downwind so I guess getting the Naish for a good price is the way to go. The owner says it is in excellent condition and from the pictures it looks that way. They are asking 850 for it so we'll see if they'll come down enough to make it worth buying.

Sitting here thinking about it.. would you all shy away from this board because the design is so old? Or since I'm just starting out, does it make sense for me, especially at a good price.

Thank you very much for all your comments and guidance.

I'm looking for a board to primarily downwind with.

The Eradicator is 27" wide. I'm 5'7" and weigh 175 (80Kg).

I haven't actually seen the Naish in person. So as far as the rocker goes the picture is all I have. When I asked the owner about the year they didn't know, which is weird anyway. They did say that it is the Naish with a more severe rocker. I've been trying to figure out the year and thought that the 2013 and previous were the ones with more rocker?

So by your comments the Eradicator would be better?

I am new to the SUP world so you'll have to forgive my ignorance. I'm buying my first SUP and am considering the 2013 Naish 14 Glide or a used 14 Eradicator.

I live by Virginia Beach so I will be in the Ocean pretty much all the time. I also will be using whatever board I buy three to four times a week. Since I'm new to the sport I realize there will be a learning curve. At this point I'm wondering which of these two choices would be best for a novice.

I attached the pic of the Naish because I'm guessing it's a 2013 looking at the rocker. The current owner doesn't know what year the board is.

Thanks for your responses.
