Go hang out at the dump and get that scale : )

When you and Ocean Addict chatted with the guy on the website he said the 10 footer was 21.5 pounds and the 11 footer was 24.2 pounds. If those numbers are correct, that should put the 10'6 under 23 pounds. The board didn't feel heavy at all so that sounds about right.

I'll try to find a scale. I want to know the weight as well.

I was eyeing this board which is sold locally. So so construction, but I like the shape. Not as thought out as the Tom Carroll hull wise, but similar in use. Good price.
It's not overhead to me!

@ TallDude

I've seen this 10'6" VESL board in a YouTube video. The video for it is below.

And it does come in a 11' length also.

I just went for a short flatwater paddle in the river on the Outer Reef. The board is very stable just as I expected. Even though water temps are still in the upper 40's, I didn't bother to wear a wetsuit and just wore my regular clothes and bare feet.

It's fast for a 32" wide 10'6. The slight semi displacement nose actually does part the water a bit, but I don't think that will interfere with how it surfs as it will be out of the water once the board starts to plane. It tracked along well and has excellent glide. It will definitely catch waves way early. The volume feels just right at 165 liters.

I didn't stay out long. I'm not into flatwater anymore. These days, all I want to do is surf. Looks like we might have some waist to chest high waves coming on Monday and Tuesday.

That's their all-arounder model in the video. Their Outerbanks model is more surf shaped, thinner and a little narrower I think?

Thanks for taking your Outer Reef out for a flatwater paddle. I can glean some info on it from your comments. You're the only person who I know of who owns an OR here on the Zoner site.

I don't think so. VESL is produced by the Paddle Surf Warehouse as their house brand. The guys at PSW are pretty surf savvy. Their shapes are an evolution of what people like and what works. They have a standard all-around line, but their surf shapes are almost exactly what I would want. They vacuum bag with a carbon /veneer composite, but no PVC sandwich. They sort of took over the Riviera's spot as far as local popularity, and the right price point.

@ TallDude

I surfed on over to the VESL site and saw the 10'6" Outer Banks model you mentioned in a previous post. I took a loo at the hybrid design and the board has 3 fin boxes.

But I also ran across another 10'6" model, the Paddle Surf Performer. It does not look like it has the hybrid design and is more tuned for surfing the waves, but I think it might do well for flat water paddling. And what really caught my eye, it has 4 fin boxes. The link to it is below.

@ Badger

I forgot to ask you this, but when you took your new Outer Reef for a quick flat water paddle, did you paddle it with one single fin or did you paddle it with a 2 + 1 fin setup?

I had all three fins installed.

The side bites are very small, typical of many boards this size. They are FCS II so they just snap in without the need for an Allen tool.

Yes, it tracked well. I think the bottom contours helped this, especially the V in the nose. I doubt this will in any way inhibit how it surfs but I won't know for sure until we get some waves.
