    Al Merrick Whip/Tangent

    These are the two new boards Al Merrick have just come out with along with other new boards. Do you guys think these boards would work on the NJ coast, VA beach and Outer Banks. I was thinking of getting a 6'1 Whip and a 6'3 Tangent if they did

    Any thoughts?

    My thoughts are that you should support a local shaper instead of Burton.

    I'd love to try a Whip, if it's anything like a Flyer I'd say it would be hard to beat. Always wanted to try a Flyer with a swallow tail. I'd go for it if I hadn't just bought a new board.

    da rookie

    i think the whip would be good for NJ, the tanget would be ok too, i think its best for a rear footed surfer. For mid atlantic i would be leaning more tord the rookie or the proton tho.

    remember that you should read the info on ci's website as to what size and thickness.

    I'm thinking a 6'1 19 1/4 width and 2 3/8 thickness for the Whip
    Tangent: 6'3 19 width and 2 7/16 thickness
