12’ custom Search aka my PtBreak
« on: February 27, 2019, 03:52:44 AM »
Time for a dedicated Sunova thread as she’s taking shape. Seven are being made for USA, I believe there’re three or four available. Here’s pics as of yesterday, more to come as they progress! Cheers

Nice looking board. And at 12' in length, nice to see you decided to go with 5 fin boxes.

Pretty cool looking board!  what is expected weight? I'm curious because my Bark Expedition reminds me your board and I use it when I go to a break I have to paddle a half a mile off my launch spot. But out of water it so heavy lol ( it's 14' long).

25.2 lb without fins and deck pad, this board is more inline with the Bark Excursion, more stability and geared towards surfing   :D

wait...what kind of handle is that??

i think you are northeast rbgar (was going to go with rbg, for short, but she might not please you).

if so, and if you need a buddy to paddle to any nice distant points, holla me!!!

sounds fun

Wish I had the distant points.  Something like this?  What a spot!
Love this board, though I’d order mine thinned out a bit and 31”.

that's a favorite pointbreak of mine, but no distant paddle requiring big board--i go in right by the flag pole--the peak's like 150 yds from there

and you might not make too many friends on a 12 footer there--gets very crowded and chippy on a nice day, certainly on the first peak out front of the lighthouse

seemed to me purpose of this board is for pt breaks too far for proners to get to--that point, including its 3 or 4 peaks, can easily have a 200 proners on it on a good day

well if you need a partner to paddle to something distant id be happy to join you--i have an old 10'11" walden magic that would fit the bill, tho it's heavy

i often see a distant sandbar or something and wonder how it'd be if paddled to--but too chicken to go on own

rbg...  I keep looking at those specs; I could use those 2" in the center. (maybe a longer period wave too)  Good for you - looks a great choice.
