  1. 6'1" Epoxy Al Merrick Flyer

    I'm going to Costa Rica and I cant bring my board and the best one for me that they have to offer at the surf shops near me is a 6'1" Epoxy Al Merrick Flyer. I normally ride a Fiberglass 6'0" JS Electro. Is it gonna be hard for me to adjust to it or duck dive it compared to what i'm used to

    no, just more volume when paddling (faster)

    I've had to work with MUCH worse while traveling. There is nothing like charging point break perfection on a funboard with a big green flower on the nose... and still having a great session. Surf lots of boards, it's good for you.

    Where in Costa Rica are you staying? I stayed in Tamarindo and rented a Flyer around that size. I am going back in March to another area and bringing my own boards.

    Dude if you can't duck dive that board you may want to stay out of the heavy stuff. I'm not bragging but I can duck dive my 7' funboard... I weight 145#. Have fun in CR and check out the volcano, sick!
