I live on the Gulf of Mexico and our winds are light. I like to wave sail and thought the longer board would serve better. I saw a Kona longboard wave sailor on the east coast last year and have been wanting something similar ever since. The Carve 171 would work if the rocker is surfable. Is it?
I have surfed for 30 years and wind surfed off and on. I just want a board that will allow me to putz around in light air and occasionally surf it when we have waves. Also, while I'm very athletic, I don't want to be restricted to water starting a tiny board. Some of the newer wide boards seem like they would serve will, again provide they had a surfable rocker.
thanks for your input. I'm ready to move on this.
kind regards, Greg
