Great rack tho. Surfboards, 14' SUP all held strong. Also had full sheets of plywood on it!

Oh man, 5:10 makes me ashamed.  That guy is violating one of the cardinal rules:  "If you are just learning to SUP surf, stay away from the lineup"

This. It hurts to watch. He didn't even try to get over the wave out of the way...

They're both great boards. If you can demo them that's great. The Sunova boards have lower volume per size than the Infinity. The Balsa Construction makes the Sunova a little lighter and pretty durable.

Hard to say...

Some reviews have been less than kind on those boards. Check Seabreeze ...

8-10mm might be ought on that size. Most seem to be in the 5-7mm range. Try getting a FCS Flight Bag but it will need to be oversized to accommodate the width and thickness.

Gear Talk / Re: What length is your surf paddle?
« on: November 05, 2018, 12:49:47 PM »
76" tall, 245 pounds. BP Surge 82 surf paddle at 72". I find the paddle cadence too slow with longer paddles. Plus switching hands I don't get the blade caught up.

Technique / Re: On your knees, or on your feet?

Kneel down or stand up when getting out to the surf is the main objective?

Here’s a quote from Greg Noll on whether or not he would tow into large surf if it was available in his time; “I don’t care if I was shot out of an elephant’s ass as long as it got me into big waves.”

Go surfing.

End of story

This!

from the IG post i borrowed the pic from

"refined nose entry and staged rocker added increased flat water glide and over all versatility. The worlds fastest All-Around Race Design just got more deadly in the flats when you need it."

Thanks Zoners

I'm asking because i just placed my SMIK order for 2019 and wanted to make sure I got the right boards!

JVM

That is great news that there are some SMIK boards headed to Canada! I see quite a few Infinity boards in the water on the west coast Vancouver Island. Would love to see some from SMIK. Let me know if you are ever headed out this way. You would be more than welcome to use one of my boards. 8’7 up to 8’10 and 115-140 litres seems to be my comfort zone at 70 kg and 63yrs in waist to head high beach break.

Cheers

Bob

Thanks Bob

We actually just moved to NS from BC. Surf a bit in Tofino but never saw Infinity. lots of Sunova and ONE these days out there
