I've seen a Rocket Wide

Fins need to be set very loose to compensate for the deep concave

Not sure who actually creates these models

He works for his family hair product business (ironic). Drives a small Lexus hybrid (basically a Prius). Assumptions are nice, aren’t they?

As I posted above - he is having more Fun

And - Good for him

Good to hear he has a day job - more reliable + Lexus Hybrid :-)

The "Feel " he likes is softer - freer - than what most recreational surfers require , just like Kelly

You could call it more responsive

Regular everyday surfers need more drive , direction and resistance

My opionion

There is a lot going on in the video. Different boards, different fins on the same board, something about same session with different boards, but then it looked like different days.... different categories - speed, drive projection. Plus the boards looks identical. I just found that you had to give the video 100% of your attention.

I think it would be easier to follow if he put a huge pink sticker on one board and a huge yellow sticker on the other, that way its easier to tell the difference. Or some spray paint or something that you can see to easily identify the boards.

Unless you're completely engaged in the video i found it hard to follow. Then again, I was having a drink and cooking some dinner at the same time i was watching.

cookin cheers

Yep, White Sands (hair) Products. Oh, the irony!

I like his videos. I'll probably never purchase any of the boards in the videos, but I think they're entertaining and better than all the Vlogs surfers put out now days. shrug

I enjoy watching these, but I have to give a criticism here. A lot of the time he's just on the worst possible equipment for the conditions. Sometimes he's in head high conditions at a macking beauty of a wave and he's on...a 5'4" or something. People will say oh well look at slats and jjf, they do the same thing (small boards on big waves) and my response is well...noel isn't those guys AND...they still look shit on those tiny boards in huge waves imo. I think jordy looked awesome on that 6'6" at Bells, he had no hesitation and compared to john john doing the same wallet drop turn 30 times, jordy surfed way better, more flow, didn't stumble on any wraps. of course he lost but fook it, everybody knows judges juice jjf scores for some goddamn reason.
When it's true grovel conditions (i don't think it ever really is at trestles, speaking as an east coast guy) he looks ok on those boards, but then he continues to surf these tiny grovel boards in bigger conditions and it's like...why do that to yourself? Of course you can still surf the wave but watching him nurse turns on set waves because he just HAS to ride the smallest possible board is kind of shit. I want to see him get on a 6'2" or something AND LAY INTO THE fooking THING AS HARD AS HE POSSIBLY CAN who gives a fook about having the same dims as pros (who suffer from the same exact problem imo).

too often looks like he's surfing heats and doesn't want to fall, combined with surfing boards that basically look like grom dims to me, so theres no use in using his recommendations for buying boards, it gets so sometimes i can't watch it.

Noel you kill it, pack a 6'0 and fooking wrap one like there's no tomorrow!!!

also i get that he's reviewing boards so i'm not saying that he shouldn't be surfing whichever board he's reviewing but...maybe surf a 5'4 and a 5'9 instead of a 5'4" and a 5'5" basically is the jist of my request

i don't know how tall he is (5'9? 5'6"?) but on his CI fever review he's surfing a board that you can't even buy that short off the rack, and his surfing suffers due to it. Why? it's like he's trying to prove that he can surf the same dims as...who?

Feels like I might as well watch ben gravy do better airs and turns on a boogie board in actual grovel conditions if Noel is just gonna ride 5'4"s and just kinda jank around in the small stuff and not have the right stuff under foot to do heavy turns when the good waves roll thru

Is there a tl;dr version of the video? Which board won? I bet he said it was a tie.
