    Bada "BING"

    Just got back from buying my new to me boards.

    9'10 Bing Elevator with a 11 inch Pivot fin

    9'8 Bing NoseRider 2 with same type of fin

    The Elevator was ridden 4 times The NR2 a bit more but they are both in Mint condtion a cpl minor scratches on them no dings , no pressure dents .

    If it wasnt dark I would post some pics Hopefully tomrrow if I wake up early before work.

    How the Late Week Bump hold out for me . So I can try these things out

    Buying a new board is always cool.My wife Just got me a new one a few months ago.Its funny how the first few times your out with it you don't want even a little pressure ding on it but after a few sessions you know its going to get a little banged up.Congrats on your new rides.

    I have a 9'6 Wynn and Its my go to board. I was told that the NR2 rides just like the original the only difference is the fin is not glassed in .

    The Silver spoon works best in waves knee to chest high from what I am told . The NR2 is good from Knee to Head high so I think the NR2 will be my new goto board and the 9'6 Wynn will be my Wildwood summer weekend its crowded board not to say I am gonna bash it up its just the Wynn only cost me a bit less and it has one ding in it already .

    Big boards

    You must be a pretty big guy Matt to be riding a 9'10" and 9'8". The longest I've ever ridden is a 9'. Board of preference now is 8'0 Channin mini-longboard thruster.

    Nah I am Tall and Skiney. 6ft 170lbs , Biggest board I have ever riddend was a 10'4 Cooperfish Hornet that belonged to a friend of mine. I had a CF but it was only a 10'0

    Those boards get sketchy once it get head high or bigger.

    tho i don't know him personally, i'd take a guess that matt surfs in a much different manner than you do, mdsurfer. if you're looking to garner serious tip time on a log, a bigger board is the general rule of thumb. pretty much, if you're a full-zise adult male, not a kid or chick, & want to longboard in the traditional style, nothing under 9'6" is really gonna cut it.

    i'm about 25lbs heavier than him & don't longboard often, but i ride a 9'6" heavily glassed log when i do. if i wanted to take a more aggressive line, i'd prob. be riding something around 9'2" or so, glassed much lighter.

    its just a question of style & approach.
