Hi Juandoe, I have a VW Transporter LWB and can fit the 12'6" on edge but it goes pretty much all the way to the firewall - fits between the front seats, which are the only seats. The Sprinter is way...

I have the 12-6 and the 11-2 and I will never sell the 12-6. Such a great all round board for flat water, small waves and teaching friends. 12-2 is too tippy for general fun IMO. Bigger fin on the...

How fast and how far do you paddle?

Without wanting to start a testosterone fuelled bragging session just wondering what sort of average speeds people paddle when cruising. I have a 12-6 and wood paddle, as time goes on and I spend...

Hi Waterloo,
I'm using the fin the board came with on the 10'5" , 28cm I think and substantial surface area. I do SUP the 10'5" but it's not relaxing in open water and I'm only 70kg - I do prefer...

Hi Waterloo,
I'm certain that you could run a 7.0SF on this board, I sail my Exocet Kona 10'5" with my SF 7.0 with no problem at all, the difference is that the Kona is actually designed to plane. I...

Hi Wardog,
Thanks for the input, I'll see if I can try an Evo 100 - I'm pretty sure that will be big enough without going to the extreme Aero. Even the 90 I could easily uphaul and the thing that...

Evo 90 V Tufskin 9'8"

Hi John, could you please give me your thoughts on the 9'8" Tufskin versus Evo 90 as next board up from Evo 80 for light wind wave riding. I'm 70kg and realise that we are talking very different...

Did you read the review of the 12'6" SUP Board - summed up saying that none of the SUP boards are really very good with a sail. Absolute rubbish, the 12'6" is fantastic and contrary to what they said...

Hi I'm 70kg and have a 101 that I sail with 6.5 and 7.5. It is easy to uphaul (even though it is only actually 96 or 97 litres but when powered up with my 6.5 it feels too big. My advice would be to...

Hi Davide,
I'm about 70kg and have a 2007 PA74, I find it surprisingly floaty and quick to plane, also effortless at keeping upwind. It is only in NO wind that you realise it is only 74l. Great...

RE: Fin for FF138

Thank you Roger and o2bnme. Sounds like the 64 would be good for the big sail but maybe I need a 60 or 62 to really suit the 7.5. The standard fin that came with the board (56 I think) would I guess...

Fin for FF138

Hi Roger,

I have a "pristine" FF138 from 2004 and I am looking to upgrade the standard fin. Biggest sail is a 9.2m Gaastra GTX but probably the one I will use the most (and would like to optimise...

RE: Wave board for me

Hi Ricardo,

I have an Evo 80 and a PA74 both wood and I weigh 70kg. I find the Evo fine with a 5.7 and am amazed how much fun it is in light wind, just couldn't see the point of a 90l Evo. I love...

RE: iSONIC 101 TOO BIG FOR 6.2M AND 73KG??

Very similar experience in big chop with powered 7.5 Gaastra GTX and 34 fin - quite scary and a real workout - moved back straps to middle position and lowered the boom which helped and also...

RE: 2007 Ezzy Wave

Great photo's Ola. Thinking of 5.7 Smack, 5.8 Ezzy as the biggest size on my Evo 80 and 5.3 as the biggest on my PA74. I guess at 70kg the Evo could handle a little bigger but I'm sure the 5.7 would...
