Re: All about the Blue Planet Wing Master board

I just borrowed a 4'10'' Wing Master this weekend and loved how easy it was for as short as it was.  Wondering if I should opt for the 4'6" because I felt I could go a little smaller.

Problem is, I tried a 4'6" 60 liter custom a few weeks back and didn't love it - I felt it submarined a bit more when I touched down and I don't attribute it to just rocker, but also that since your front foot is further forward, there's less time to recover. I tried the same builder's 4'10" 80 liter and it didn't catch the front as much (for me)

So, if anyone has ridden a 4'6" wing master as well as a 4'10" and is roughly my weight (155#), please throw some wisdom at me.

PS - Robert - if you're reading this - do you ship to Puerto Rico?

Thank you for the feedback, stoked you liked the wing master. Yes, I'm reading this and yes we ship to PR.   I use the 4'6 with 76L at 190 lbs.  I struggled with front to back balance at first but now love how loose the board is for carving, pumping and rotations but still relatively easy to start in lighter wind.
