GONG inflato - new video
« on: August 11, 2020, 09:26:19 AM »
This little board looks like a tugboat but performs well with boss on top. I could not see any delay, as the deck absorbed the pressure when he pressed his front foot down.   One could be excused for thinking it safer in a lineup ...but, Oooops!  "There's a machete underneath!"

Still safer, with a regular rig you’re 100% sure of a hard surface if you get hit. This one lowers that to 50/50, right? Pono, Beasho, do not run the area vs probability numbers on me lol.

But for the rider? I say much safer overall. And I’ll say it over and over, what a great travel rig with a wing and breakdown paddle.

^^^ This ^^^ Cuz...

I so want to pull the trigger on either the Flint or the Hipe, but just can't bring myself to go through another marvelous magical mystery tour of "Dude, Where's My Car order". Like the great orator GW once said, "Fool me once, shame on...shame on you. Fool me you can't get fooled again." :D

Fingers crossed, and good thoughts for you as you enter the shipping order time forgot, but stoked for you also, and look forward to your ride report as soon as you get it.
