ease of catching a wave

Would it be safe to say that one can get more board speed paddling the 11.2 than the 9.8; and, one would catch waves earlier?

Acid and Evo turning technique differences

At 78 kg, have had some comfort with the '06 Evo '74 in high wind, even overpowered with a flat 4.2 sail in Cape Town, on fast waves rarely over 3 meters. At some point my '06 Evo '83 gets too big...

use of weed fins on evo and acid

The initial ramp and sweep of a weed fin, even those that are not that radical has the effect of moving the fin center of hydrodynamic pressure back by 3 or more centimeters.

'06 Pure Acid 86L tail shape

what makes a board turn
