yea I saw that also. INT used to have market share years ago and they new it. They were quite full of themselves and now they are more active on social media etc.Racer1 said:
Yep, the INT’s ride like you are on a trampoline they don’t have a strong enough stringer but catch surf has supposedly fixed that with 3 wood stringers down the middleI'm not sure why anyone would want a hybrid over a regular board. Soft tops flex like crazy. It's hard to drive off the bottom and do a decent turn.
Me either. I've seen guys bring them out when the surf is super clean and chest high. It feels like the equivalent to skulling a 50 years old bottle of scotch. I guess they make sense if the surf is absolute garbage and you want to surf between the flags - but i'd rather body surf.yup. I seem to be in the minority but I don't get it.
I was thinking of getting one, my reason is I can keep it in the car wand when I get off work I can get a few waves in not having to worry about wax melt or the sun roasting my board. Also, I think if you get a high performance foamie, I would not be worrying about dropping in on anything last minute or busting impossible airs. Maybe the soft foam gives me more confidence.Me either. I've seen guys bring them out when the surf is super clean and chest high.

and the logs are considered beginners boardsI have a 7’0” Catchsurf Odysea Log. It has its place in my quiver as a longboard alternative. I’ve probably taken it out 5 times in the 5 yrs I’ve had it and had a blast every time. The last time it was in small, fat, high tide lefts. You can’t expect high performance out of these things but you might be pleasantly surprised of what is possible with them. The Catchsurf YouTube videos show how far they can be taken under the feet of competent riders like JOB and others. They will never replace your go to, daily driver, but they can add a new dimension when the waves are less than ideal. Personally I like the way they glide and the flex characteristics make for an interesting ride.
