I think it would depend of the surfer’s ability level and types of waves surfed. Confirmation bias also plays a big part.Matt seems to be making all the Lightbenders with a wing now. Think it makes a difference? Like if you rode a regular version and the winged version, think you could tell them apart?
Inquired. He said the winged version would be better for the beachies I surf. It would be 'more spicy'Matt seems to be making all the Lightbenders with a wing now. Think it makes a difference? Like if you rode a regular version and the winged version, think you could tell them apart?
Wing makes the LB outline a bit more similar to the Twinsman, no?Inquired. He said the winged version would be better for the beachies I surf. It would be 'more spicy'
Makes sense as Plasmic tighter turning radius. imhoAm I alone in preferring my plasmic at beach breaks and lightbender at points and reefs?
something I only recently noticed but I think I don’t like the plasmic as much on open faces but maybe bc I’ve been running pivot templates all summer.
What are your human dims to go along with your 5’4 plasmic? Considering a plasmic yolo myself. The guys at album were recommending a stock 5’6” for me at 6’1 and 190 lb.My go-tos at the moment, are a 5' 4" Plasmic, 5' 4" Will's fish, and 5' 8" Twinsman, with the Plasmic being the one that I grab the most. For a relatively new board, I am beating the **** out of it. The pitchier the wave, the more I prefer the Twinsman, as I don't need the speed generation that Plasmic creates. I love the playfulness of the Plasmic and when starting in the whitewater it gets you out of that back in the greenwater so well, and the Twinsman feels like this in the better wave. The Will's fish falls somewhere in-between.
I sold the 5' 10" roundtail Twinsman, preferred the shorter swallowtail. I am debating my next YOLO, I kind of want to try even shorter, narrower Plasmic owing to the pure fun factor.
I really like that color. Too bad it's too small for me
