am waiting on a 6'1 lightbender...big guy dims...went back and forth - matt tried to sell me on a vesper but I need a board that has a bit of a lower end for the waves around here..glad I didnt go varial lol. pu pe ya kooks.
I had him smash the dimensions of a 6'4 occster down to a 6'0, foil out the tail like crazy, and chill out on the hard edge past the wide point. Kind of asked him to make a fling lol. Board went really well, no idea why I sold it. Probably never able to get another.
There are a lot of people who could be announcing next to Turpel, I don't dislike mendes but he is not particularly compelling either...turpel needs a straight man and maybe mendes's blandness clicks..the tati angle seems unlikely but maybe the wsl marketing department really is that fucking stupid.
Im 6' 220lbs... ride 40-43 L on my daily drivers.... My problem is that at a certain point if you pack too many L in too small a board it turns into a godamn cork. Always a balancing act between board length and Liters as longer boards dont fit into our tiny waves that well (for me...)
