Thanks for the quick replies, fellers. It means a lot not to be ignored
So if one compares Bonzers3/5 with widowmakers it's the bottom shape that makes the difference, if I get it right?
Bonzers are for the more experienced surfers and more difficult to get them dialed in whereas the widowmaker is more user-friendly, if I get it right?
When the widowmaker developed from a gunish/ semi-gunish shape, with either sidebites or a bigger centre fin added, would a more curvy outline with 21" in width still makes sense, or wouldn't it then be called widowmaker but something else? To be honest with you, I don't give a lot about names and shames, but somehow boards are shaped the way they are shaped for a reason, I reckon.
Seen some lovely widows 2nd hand recently, but all above the 6'6 mark. Is that just for personal likings or do those widows need some longer and straighter rail to work properly?
