I'm worried about nerve damage upon landing.

I'm saving this one to show my kids kids.

Thanks for the tip Racer. Went 3 L above for my small wave board and I’m having a blast on Chili Black vulture.
FYI, if you get a chance, try Toy X from Super. It’s an incredibly fun bord to Surf and insanely easy to surf.
For advanced Kook like me, I’m having a blast on this thing 🤣

Nope, you shouldn't have! I still ride that board and love it. Thrusters are even more fun than controllers!

Update on my thai board. It's been 6 months since I got it. I ride it weekly, sometimes for weeks on end. Even in overhead waves up to double overhead. Still really, really enjoy it. It just works in everything. Running AM large fronts with performer medium quad rears. Holding up much better than I thought. No dings yet, only some light pressures. Will replace immediately if anything happens to it.

heading north this weekend and gonna check out a 5'8" 33L fling in superflex they got on sale for $550 at a shop up there.

it's a usa made one which is nice because I can't handle the thai spice.

dims seem pretty good for me at 6'3" 180lbs and I've been wanting to try one of these for a minute.

only downside is fcs2 boxes but I think I have a 5 fin large AM set around somewhere's.

I think you'll like it Aruka. Yeah it's high on liters for you, but it's supposed to be. You'll still be able to turn it, easily actually.
I liked mine as a quad.

Rode my friends 5'5 swallowtail Fling in chest high Mexican point break waves and it kinda went off. Waves were hitting on the outside and then backing off and then starting to bowl as they got further inside the point and the Fling was blast. Ate the flatter sections for lunch and turned on when the wave stood up more. Think I'm going to take it off his hands. Looks like a handshaped superflex judging by the penciled in dimensions. A little larger than I'd like but I can't really argue with it. Had some Rasta quads in it but I'm anxious to try it as a tri.

It's a strange world.
Havo4k's posts are reading more and more like 20W-50's used to be but 20W-50's posts are getting easier to read and comprehend.
Drugs? Alocohol? Both?

I want a 5’5 or 5’6 with the newer dims. These don’t seem to last very long on the used market.
