Default RE: Help with choosing a wave board!

Wind is pretty well dead onshore most of the time and because it is a wind driven swell the wave period is quite short and it can be difficult getting out sometimes without a floaty board or bigger fin.
Also sailing on a lake with dead onshore wind and short period swell/waves, another element to take into the equation is that a faster to accelerate and early planing board such as a Pure Acid is clearly easier to get safely through wind-driven swell/wave sets than an Evo. A wave onshore fin with more surface than either a classic sideshore or Drake Natural wave fin does help a lot in these kind of conditions as well. Quick planing and acceleration are key players in dead onshore waveriding.
