and to qualify that by no means am i the best sailor, BUT i have an sailed the evo , kode and kombat in maui this spring from kanaha kai ,
the evos just too rockered a board.
i mean one "can" use it , but is it the best for that purpose in the starboard lineup, my opinion is no .
try and buy another board if you can.
to add i also preferred the acid in big winds (4.2 sail, i am 85 kgs )to the evo,
I more marginal winds I liked the kode better as i am not a very accomplished wave sailor and it hit the mark for a mix of high speed blasting some wave riding and jumping.
