RE: Evo for bump n' jump
I way 168 lbs. I live for the days when it is blowing 25knots or more.
90% of our wave sailing is onshore. I have more opportunities for large swells than waves, although I have a couple of nice wave sailing spots I can go to.
Buzzards Bay can get VERY chopped up when it starts blowing. I sail an old Mistral Challenge Flex that is 8'6" long and about 21" wide. It eats up chop. It turns very well but it is very unforgiving, especially when the wind gets marginal. Don't get me wrong, it is a great shape, very fast and turns beautifully on the waves and swells. But it probably a 16 year old board.
