Then down the line, if I get on well, perhaps downsize to smaller fish.
My only reservation is that people always say fishes should be short, or theyre kind pointless for their intended purpose. Any thoughts on this? And any recommendations of specific shapers for this - GS, B&W again, FJ?
Ideally, I’d have a similar (although I appreciate, it wouldn’t be AS much due to being more progressive) flow, glide and early-ish wave entry, but with faster down the line speed, more drive, and considerably more manoeuvrability and able to handle a wide range of conditions, from 1.5ft-6ft+. I don’t want slashy vertical surfing, but it would be nice to hit the lip now and then and to get some decent turns in.
Does such a board exist? Can eggs BE fast whilst retaining the above characteristics?
With regards to eggs then (gideon egg for example), if run as a 2+1, with flexi centre fin, does that open the board up to a more 'generate your own speed' approach, whilst still being smooth, floaty and flowing?
