    However, we generally see smaller waves at least a few days a week.
    I had to step back in. Brew you seem to have awful surf conditions down south. In Maine I don't consider surfing when it's less than 9 seconds usually. It's typical to experience strong off shores here with swells around 12 seconds and there's size. My Makaha 10-9 board is actually my go to right now for all conditions

    But the circling and swarming band of idiot convention members will never agree. Everyone I've met and surfed with in person loves this design and is jealous that they can't have one. Key words 'in person'. You all do not exist as far as I'm actually concerned.

    Best wishes

    Charles, you dont get out unless its at least 9 seconds?
    How often do you surf on the EC?
    It would be great to see swell stats for the last 36 months for York ME

    In jerz a few feet at 7 seconds is enough for a grown man to have fun

    Also do you plan on having 12 kids?....please say no

    Bottom line.. most of that zip you feel of the sweet spot is the same thing you would get riding a board that is too big for you. I rode my friends 10*6** this summer and had an absolute blast. Id set a line, find the RS patented sweet spot, and get zipped into a soul arch. It was a blast but did not turn well/and was most fun in ankle biters.

    I love riding big boards. Id love to own a big 10*2** made out of a pawlonia.. but its not the end all be all. If I thought it was, Id be thinking way to much about it. To much intellectualizing about surfing dulls the sensory acuity of the session.

    Kookiemonster your from Maine right ? And no the 10-9 makaha feels nothing like my 10-6 surftech Malibu. You wouldn't know because you have never used the makaha. Your the kook. Peace be with you friend.
