I know it's an old(er) design, but does is it still good compared to today's boards? I'm looking for a groveller for east cost Oz and there's a "vector net" EPS version for relatively cheap near me in what look like useable dims...

How much better can a 'new' design go than one from 5 years ago? If every new design went better, can only imagine where we'll be in 10-20 years thought
But all reviews and videos point to the Fling as a pretty sick board.

If you are quick and lucky Cooly Surf is closing down in the next 2 - 3 days and they have the fling in epoxy on super sale. Might get it new for 500 AUD

Having been to East Coast OZ and currently have a Fling, I can tell you that it will go great there. It goes great in anything.

This is my post about it:

I think they updated the size, I remember I should have taken a 5'6 at 32L but I didn't cause at 6'2 it s just too short. Now i think 32L takes you to 5'8, much better

FYI in case youre curious: Ive got a 510 for sale. Brand new. Super Flex, carbon wrap technology. 36.5 Liters. Made in Thailand via GSI. Never surfed or waxed. I bought it from Super in Carlsbad to resell. PM me if youd like to check it out. I think its the 2017 version, but not 100% sure. Im in north county SD.

Moderator: please remove if inappropriate. Apologies if necessary. Thanks!!

PSA: if youre in the North County SD area...I believe that Super will be having a factory sale this coming weekend (11/17-11/18). Might be a good opportunity to fondle some Flings.

Disclaimer: Im not affiliated with Super, I just heard this thru the grapevine, so do your homework and confirm before coming to Carlsbad to check it out.

I'm in Sydney and have seen a few guys ride them around here. Should be fun as we come into summer. The only problem is the only ones they have for cheap are FCS2 - I'm an exclusively futures guy. Any recommendations in FCS2?
