I wouldn't go sidebites, that'd kinda defeat the purpose imo . It's a fantastic board, but you gotta be okay with drawing a line across the face rather than busting maneuvers. You're basically paying for a 70's board with the last 50 years of acquired board-building knowledge applied to it.Interesting. I am seriously considering it, although I'd want to get one with some sidebits. Idk if they do that.
I'm thinking either a Peahi or a Jim Banks single fin.
And about your earlier post about shitty water quality in Bali, it can be like that a few places and from time to time, but honestly like 95% of the time not a problem. I would willingly criticize the sh!t out of it if there actually was a problem, I'm not some rosy eyed optimist, but it's really almost never an issue in the Bukit.
You could probably go down to like a 6'4" if you wanted a shortboard replacement, or go up to a 7'0" if you want to catch waves off every set and be able to push up to DOH out there.
