Thanks. Sorry for all the questions. Will the extra 6 litres over the 74 give a noticeable difference in float in the lulls?

Basically.
I reckon you'll be stoked with the evo 80 for what you're looking for.
at 85 kg's. (Been in a good paddock this summer) I can schlog just fine on the 80.
It's quick onto the plane and when it comes to actual turning of the board, that's where you're going to be really stoked compared to the other boards I would believe.
I don't think you'll have an issue with chop.
I'll buy you a carton of ales if you're dissatisfied anyway. That's how confidant I am anyway.
Cheers
scott

Yes, I think the 80 is noticably floatier than the 74.

Great. We look forward to your report. Try it with the original 23 fin first, but it you want more slow speed effectiveness, try to get ahold of a Drake Natural 25 too.

Good luck,

First feedback.

Under-powered gusty 15-30 knots. Flat water, very choppy.
Good :
Very good float on board in lulls, exactly what I wanted. Quick onto plane. Extremely sensitive to foot pressure, more so than 05 Evo 74. Good thru chop also better than Evo 74.
Still to get right :
Footstrap position :
Present Back strap all way, frontB) all way back. Need to move front all way forward. Was luffing too quickly, but this was due to fact that I am not used to the board. Fin spins outs quite early, again I was loading the fin, due to foot position. Still need to find optimal mast foot and strap position. Fin box very tight. Spent time sanding new and old fin to fit. Quality checks must not have taken place in factory

Still early days, but future looks good. It it very floaty in lulls and responds to foot presssure well. Hope tofind a bit of swell this weekend.

Cheers
