New Board!!
« on: December 08, 2018, 01:18:09 PM »
This is a Kings 52 board. Its designed for the river but surfs amazing in the ocean!! We were at SanO and it was my 9th day on the ocean. Was able to catch a lot of waves once I figured it out. Im no pro but the short light board is amazing. I also have a custom 36 inch front wing and it flies like a dream. Im 62 and 180 lbs (no foot straps).

Very cool board. Youre surfing it well. I liked the video. The dude in the orange kayak is always at San-O. Hes a really nice guy. Thanks for sharing

Saw Sam out on this board today.  He was flying it really well, especially given that this is only his 9 or 10 session in the ocean!

Good seeing you out there!! The board is awesome as well as the foil set up. Dave made me a 36 inch front wing to surf the river waves (the normal wings are 32 inches) and the board is designed for the river waves as well at 52 and 110 L. Its super light with big powerful wings which works great in the ocean!!
