Always been curious what point you ask for semi gun or even buzzgun but I don't get to surf conditions like that any more so no need here. I always loved shape of buzzgun and quad I would be all over but around 7'-7'4"I've got a 6'10" 2x4 legacy. It's my go to board for bigger OBSF and lost coast. The extra length helps with stability too in the wind chop.
I normally go CFT medium but for my 2x4 step up I went heavy because I wanted it for long paddle days and stiff winds but even my stubby boards 5'2" do good 10-15mph winds and hell one day had my It 2win out on 20mph and had no problem but the size at 6'9" took off like kite when it was not planing on waves.@PeterDj @rowjimmytour @thekadvang Thanks for all the input guys
my 5'11 2x4 (30L) went insane in the Mentawais (What board doesnt lol) so I was thinking a bit bigger dims to tackle the beach here and to bring for travel when the waves get heavy. I did like my 2x4 in santa cruz, but felt like it didnt have enough foam for most days at OBSF. Nice to hear that the epoxy manages with windy conditions.
Thinking a 6'3 or a 6'4 in CFT should serve me well - I'm 6'0 and 170
How long are customs taking right now? Anyone tried a 5150? Im really tempted to.
12 weeks for me as well and ordered right before Xmas. Looking into a 2x4 in 32L next...
Have 8'0" buzzgun is a magic board for waves where you need itAlways been curious what point you ask for semi gun or even buzzgun but I don't get to surf conditions like that any more so no need here. I always loved shape of buzzgun and quad I would be all over but around 7'-7'4"
Nice one thing with stretch fins go with board I only had trouble once with super buzz came with FU#3 quad set and switched them with FU#2 and used FU#3 for gbuzz and never take em out unless I travelthey are some super old fiberglass stretch gun fins with the classic "S" logo on them
all 4 fins the same size (pretty small) 50/50 foil
have never tried to run anything else they work great
I either want a 5150 or a Happy from CI. My quiver is already complete but I've got an itch to add new stuff for fall/winter.
I run the dylan gravezilla thrusters on my 8' comp gun for cruising long points, just because they look cool. If its more critical I go with the stretch gun s2 quad set. There are some days where the wave might not be that big, but it's fat and lots of wind chop, then the comp gun works allot easier than the 2x4 step up. I told stretch to add extra vee in the nose and double concave out the back for the windy days. It's a paddling beast, I can't blame the board for my lack of talent if i miss a wave.What fins do you run on your 8' buzzgun?
I run the pink and black honeycombs on my super buzz too. But, they are looking ragged now after running into the reef too many times. The FU are cheaper at least.For my super buzz sk8 i've been using the pink and black stretch honeycomb fins. Should I get a set of the FU #2 and use those instead?
