Thanks for that feedback. Interestingly enough I just got an 11' cruise control from Jimmy Lewis for exactly the reasons you mentioned below. It looks amazing, the finishing is really nice! I'm frothing to get out on it but I'm limited here in Calgary due to the winter so now I just sit and stare at it.  :'(

I found the following link and it sold me on Jimmy Lewis:

Not too many local shapers where I live haha.

Appreciate the info. everyone.

I hear ya, it's tough enough to get my 7'6" fun board down there let alone trying to run with an 11footer. This is my 2nd time to Sayulita and I have not been to Punta Burros yet so thanks for that recommendation, I'll try to check it out for sure. Have you gone a little further north and surfed Sayulita beach yet? Its got a really nice R and a good L that breaks if the swell is up a bit. I spent 2 weeks on that break in 2008 and loved it.....all though I anticipate it's gonna be crazy crowded over the christmas season.

Too bad you're going a few weeks after us or I would say we should paddle out together!!

If I try the downwinder I'll let you know if it's worthwhile.

Great is awesome, looks like a sweet day to be out. Pretty glassy, cruisy waves.

Do you have any good SUP surf recommendations for the Sayulita, Punta de Mita area? I've surfed there before but I've never surfed on an SUP......I'm stoked to give it a try but want to get a sense of a good wave to try it on.

Any advice is appreciated.

I agree w/K-541, there's snow on the ground like that just make me want to cry.....need a vacation.

Has anyone done the open ocean downwind by Punta Mita Expeditions in Sayulita Mexico. I'm heading there over christmas and want to get a sense of what it is like.

Hi all,

I'm new to the site and was hoping this might be a good source of information for me. I'm currently learning about all different types of boards and finding out that almost all look great but no all are well constructed.

Can someone help give me a sense of the 1 or 2 best styles of construction for quality and value in a board? What's best? Sandwich construction, Bamboo technology, plastic, other?
