Surfing Raceboards
« on: February 03, 2020, 03:25:47 AM »
Took the Bump Rider Speed out today in some waist-to-knee surf. Plenty of 1+ minute rides, chasing reform after reform across the reef. Love surfing this board, but it's so unwieldy at 6" thick and 265... Probably going to have a custom 14' surf shape done this summer, and save the down-winder for...down winding  ;D

Blue Planet Bump Rider Speed 14'x27"x6" 265L with "Up Surf" 9" honeycomb fin. Using one of the carbon down-wind race fins I have makes the board A LOT harder to turn.

How about FOILING looks like you have a perfect spot there

When the tide is deep enough ;-)  My main surfing buddy bought one, and has been using it, but I can't bring myself to try it. I tell myself that I'm not interested, but the truth is that I don't need another addiction.

Ha ha, once you try it and learn to fly you will never use your race sup for surfing.
Addicted to foiling at the moment.
