this thing flies!!!!
i bought it as a sweet potato alternative. spoke to jools (GULFSTREAM) and came up with a plan for a sml wave toy.
BUT on its 2nd day out st combesgate the swell suddenly went from chest to a fairbit overhead.....im thinking uhh ohh this wont cope too well ....WRONG !! as the wave got better so did the "squirty" nature of this design. now, im 41 n lardy n dont get in too much, but this just makes me shine.
"longboard wave" tool that goes in better surf too. had to nurse a few bottom turns initially, but with a 19" tail you would wouldnt you.
the glory comes from a "buttery" "wet soap" feel down the line "vvvvvvip" acceleration from the get go is quite intense, and being so squat it can be thrown about from off the tail with ease.
my mate , an avid mctavish longboarder had a swopsy for half a session with it.....he had the biggest smile on his face...he loved it and couldnt suss how he was getting longboard waves on such a" "small" platform
mine carries 51 litres..
.( as requested....for isle of wight slack high tiders) imagine what you younger fitter folks could go down to , n still gobble up log waves...? and then throw it in the back of a fiat 500 !!
highly recomended not a shortboard.....but dumps truck loads of fun back into summer slack/not so slack waves
