Default RE: Evo for bump n' jump

Peterk,
People tend to recommend pure waveboards because those are hip. But from a pragmatic point of view you should really pick the Kombat 79. It offes you the maximum versatility. It is better than a waveboard for bump and jump, and it has the speed and upwind capability to punch out in onshore conditions.
You should pick the Evo only in case you plan to major on frontside wavesailing (which is quite demanding in onshore conditions...).
Some manufacturers, like Exocet, actually sell boards that look very much like the Kombat as "pure wave" (their Exo Wave). It just illustrates that a waveboard does not need to be shaped like a banana :-)
