    Thanks brotha! I'll be out this weekend regardless, just good to know for the future what kind of things I should be looking at for heaving fall jersey barrels.

    Yep.


    See how it's all wide where your chest would go? That means there's more foam there.

    Here's the profile to give a better idea:


    Rails are all thin, but it's thick in the middle.
    Lot of rocker on this board and the nose is needle sharp.



    Long, drawn out tail with the trailing fin way down near the end of the board, about a mile south of the other two.

    Makes steep drops, goes real fast, but still stalls and turns pretty well for a 6'8". I like it, the 5-10 days a year I get to use it.

    Oh yeah, those Soars work pretty good, thanks nj42.

    Great thread. 34, good topic and question to pose. fins and the others, thanks for quality responses. gaff, that stick is a beauty, good pictorial.

    Let's get more of these gems and less conspiracy theories. We can keep the banter in between for fun.

    Is debating the best barrel boards during summer flatness anything like comparing pin-up girls three weeks into a 6-month submarine trip? I may have to put my frequent flyer miles together and get somewhere for a few days where they don't speak English. I've been sprinting with weights on the ocean floor to prepare.

    For hunting elusive beachbreak tubes a longboard is best.

    I would just like to add that I get barreled on my 9'6 all the time.

    I either ride my Widerboard quad (5'10" x 19.75 x 2.33 .93 cf) with pc5 and gxq trailers unless it's bumpy and/or over a couple feet overhead then I break out my step up JS thruster (6'6" x 18.25 x 2.25 probably .80 cf?) with future Vector II's.
