i've been lookin' around for a new board for christmas (yes, i know it a long time from now) and i found catch surf's "the one". i was wondering if anyone has ever tried one or owns one and what they think about it. lemme know.
not to keen on the soft board idea, the catch surf beater looks like it might be fun in the videos on their site plus you can basically just smash it into the sand all day long they look really really slow though
I dont think the one is that great but The Beater looks like something worth the price. Its only $150 and looks pretty good for stand-up boogying. It looks more surf than it does skim/boogy so maybe thats the thing to go with. I have a Herlihy and its nice I like it a lot but its mainly a bodyboard that you can skim with. The standup aspect is good too but nothing amazing, and its roughly $270-$300. The reason I bought it was mainly because Colin Herlihy is from my hometown of Bethany Beach so I thought Id support the cause. They are indestructable though its crazy, 3 stringers has lasted me skimming and boogying shorebreak for 3 years now.
