Evo 74 - Any good for blasting?
I can pick up an Evo 74 for a great price but I am not sure if it is the right board for me.
I need a board around 75L that is great for onshore, bump & jump type blasting conditions from 19-20 knots upwards. I might occassionally get to cross-off conditions but very rarely. The primary use would be coastal high-wind use with 1m 'wind' waves but no real swells. Would an Evo be any good or completely inappropriate? If not, what would you recommend?
I have used a Carve 90 (often called the HyperCarve!) which I quite enjoyed as it had that smooth Hypersonic feeling and blasted very nicely. I think the Evo shares a similar double-concave hull design.
