I've had a few great Flyer's but haven't tried a "New" one yet. I think for what you are describing though it would be a pretty good choice.
I don't think a boards duck dive ability should be a huge concern when it's meant for head high and under point waves but that's just me.
After asking around someone said the New Flyer is might be too much of a performance board for what I'm looking for but that was only one opinion.
As for the duck diving bit, I'm trying to replace an old used shortboard I had that broke so for the time being I've been surfing a 7'6 fun board. Its so bulky and heavy that even turtle rolling doesn't help. I just get dragged way back - I'm 5'6 130lbs so I'd like something that I can duck dive again.
My buddy has both. He likes the weirdo best i think.
Weirdo- more snappy, lots of flip out the back.
#4- more carvy, continuous rocker.
Never tried either but they both look really good.
I wouldn't be too scared of the rocker. CI probably knows what they'r doing when it comes to rockers.
I like the sound of "more carvy" that's the style I'd like to surf.
I've heard both sides about the rocker, I've heard people say they like the rocker because it helps give them drive on the smaller waves but on here sounds like theres too much rocker? I don't know what my old board had because it was an old used board given to me so I don't really have anything to compare to.
I personally don't know much technically
about rockers to begin with so the debate has got me pretty stumped
