DSUP - hoping so too. It's not like I'm used to standing there and gliding on any of the land/watercraft I utilize so that's good news. My tactile recognition of the board under me is at an all-time high.
Southside - yeah, it's pretty wide but very thin for that width. I've got a 5'6 just as wide and way thicker, as well as two short fishes so I know what high vol feels like on an SB. High hopes for this stick as I imagine the vee hardly giving me a corky or bogged down feeling.
Will keep you bros posted. I've been getting takeoffs on nothing waves lately on boards with lessor equal volume so I'm optimistic for lots of rides.
What do you suggest for fin choice to handle the looseness? I've been liking larger fins lately. This is a quad while I've been all about the thruster as of late. The way the fin boxes are installed is unique also. These sticks are definitely something different.
All comments from those who've got Coil experience or other applicable knowledge are welcome.
Glad to be down to 5'8 lengths now. That's what I was working towards as it offers the best transfer from my skating.
Well I've been waiting for this. Erock , Gaff and DSUP all have raved bout the Coil for months. Just scored a Megamind 5'8 x 22.5 x 2.375 with the serious bottom vee in near mint condition for $370. Boom.
Read Gaff's tread a while back and this one sounds much like it. So stoked to cut loose on this beauty in Rhodey on Weds thanks to TS BelMar. Soooo stoked.
Good size. What is the vol? Shaped by Mike D or Kirk ?
