8'10 Sunova PLACID _ My Video Review
« on: October 06, 2020, 03:11:07 AM »
Loving my 8'10 PLACID
Super stoked about that, because.... I didn't like my 9'1 at all.

It appears that size matters with this board.
If you ride a bigger Placid, I'd love to hear your thoughts on it.... because I shouldn't have the the only opinion on Placids over 9'

I have found this to be true on several shapes.... love the boards under 9'0, but somehow they don't work for me at over 9'0.
That's important to me since most of my boards are over 9'0  :)

Many boards are equally good through the full range of sizes

You did good Ricky; that's a nice one. Bert taught me: Don't be afraid of wet rails. Those damn corks with thick rails I first bought had me in the water a lot.

Nice Rick!  You make all boards look good.  Probably not a board for me as I only surf off the tail if Im lucky...unfortunately.

Thanks for the kind words Zonoids, there are muchly appreciated!

Truth Big man, Twins may work with the 2 fin placement option on the Placid's forward plugs
I do have a set of MR Twins and will try them next time I get some favorable conditions!

Great work Rick.

Finding good board reviews is why I came to the Zone 12 years ago.

Well done!

Hi SW

Thanks my friend....  I appreciate that!
It's the same reason I first came here.

The sharing of info on the Zone was so much better than in brand advertising or even at SUP shops.
We have come a long way!!

SUP surf shapes and tec have reached a very good performance level.... it's amazing how they have evolved, and much of it is because of forums like the Zone and Seabreeze.
Same thing is now happening in the Foil world. 

But me?
I'm sticking to SUP surfing and paddling.... I freeking LOVE it more than ever, after all these years! ;D ;D

I encourage ALL SUPsters, new, old, young rippers or old newbies to join in with reviews of your gear
Many people out there want to hear what is working for newbies, who are sharing their same learning process... the stoke is real!!! :)

Yesterday, I had a long conversation with a new SUP surfer who is 6'11 and never surfed before.
He has massive stoke and passion.... it is so much fun to share in that process!
