Jimmy Lewis - Sale
« on: December 29, 2018, 05:37:21 AM »
If anyone's looking for a post-Christmas gift to themselves... JL is running 50% off on a lot of his line, including the SuperTech (I'm probably grabbing a 8'3"), etc.

Yeah, have fun with it, great board. Really nice session on it today, just wish it was 5" shorter, ha. JL boards are really light and extremely durable (I dropped a WW off my surf racks at the top of my garage, not even a blemish). Just watch the rails with paddle dings.

Are you going with wax or deckpad? I know I shouldn't buy yet another board, but damn, I have a trip in 11 days and downsizing would be nice.

I bought hexatraction after all these glowing reviews on here and web. But I am not impressed at all - impossible to even prone paddle it in rash guard - I keep sliding off the board. Also it might work for regular suping or downwinding but performance sup surfing I don't see how. Maybe I will change my opinion but the first time using it was underwhelming to say the least. Wax is great - never lost a contact with my longboard. So I might end up ripping those hexes off and just waxing it. We'll see.

P.S also bought a kwad model for wife - price is just too good.

Yeah, I'm a big fan of waxing it, that's my only complaint on the Super Frank, the deckpad can get a bit slick from time to time.

I’ve waxed every SUP I’ve owned....the pads too....still the best traction possible.

Not a hijack! Just piling on the Hexatraction thoughts. My personal experience with it relates to water temperature.

When it goes below 50 degrees it is almost useless other than providing a thin layer of protection.

Back to winter wax on the schnozz. My Infinity New Deal felt like a skating rink in 37 degree water.

What size are you looking at? I mean......my 8'3 with fins and wax was 15 lb on the dot. I don't know that carbon is worth the extra money unless you are going really small. Just my opinion.

I don't know what my boards feel like in 37 degree water and I never will.
