    Gun/Semi Gun uses

    i'm aware they are made for large waves but is it possible to use them for anything else other than waiting for a hurricane to come? dimensions 7'4 x 18 x2 7/16

    Are you able to travel some?? For some locations way from East coast, in shoulder high waves, steeper than most, it would be a fine board.
    Looks like a great board for Tres Palmas....

    You know what, bagus, you could be right. I did not notice how thin it is. For me, 18 wide is way to narrow as well.
    That said, if the owner is a smaller dude than me (I am just under 6ft), maybe it will be okay??

    Your right- A board like that is a pretty technical board. Only really good in certain conditions -much like any board.
    BUT it would not be good for a beginner. It's way to technical and will not work well in waves that a beginner would like. Now if it was a like a 9ft gun - like Roy's- that a beginner could ride. In fact it might take you some time to learn I ride that board well...

    Anyways- you gotta look at it like this- that board is like a sports car- doesn work well on a road with pot holes, but a race track is perfect.

    So that being said- it wouldn't work in mushy waves well.

    BUT if it's clean and barreling- it will be perfect. You could totally ride it anything above chest hi- as long as it's clean and barreling. Wave Size is not so much the matter- although it will not turn like a shortboard. But it will be super fast.
    So here's the best conditions- those days when the waves are super fast barrels and no ones making the waves- that's when you grab that board and laugh as you effortless make all the waves!

    its prob too late for this but that type of gun - with which nothing in general is wrong - has kinda been
    replaced with a newer model; as such there are many of those type of boards available second hand now.

    if one can tolerate the absurdity of owning one on the east coast and using it once every 3 years....
    they should own one.
