Thread: Rusty Dwart

  1. #11
    7S Superfish. They make 5'9''...6'....6'3''

    I have the 6'3'' and i wont ride anything else. Ive had it 5 years and have rode it in nothing to giant hollow death waves. Floats insane and it has step rail design where the rails are thin so you can rip if you want to. It has been around forever and it works. Cheaper too than AL MERRICK BRAAA. Getsome.

    yes, the fish shape has been around quite a while & works really well in many settings. the 7S is less traditional fish & more modern/hybrid fish. but in many of those settings, there's something else that would work better.

    that's b/c it's a foreign-made piece of junk w/ shoddy glassing & poor fin plug installation (i've never seen more blown FCS plugs than in the 7S). kind of like the anacapas that merrick tried to sell for a while. not defending merrick here, b/c he's done the same thing- over-seas board production that cuts corners & costs & produces an inferior board.
    you'd be better off finding & supporting a local shaper who builds each board by hand & can build you exactly the right board for you & how & where you surf.

    Dwart size?

    Hello guys:

    I am very interested in buying a Dwart board, but I have some doubts about the size to choose.
    I am 5.8 ft and 168 lb
    I practice surf in the South of Spain, where the waves normally have little power of 0 to 5.5 ft, sometimes in reef with some tube. For these waves, I have a custom board similar to a Piranha shape, with size 60 20 2.5.
    For bigger waves, I have a 6.4.
    What size of Dwart must buy to wave from 0 to 5.5 ft? A 5.8, a 5.10?
    A couple of questions more:
    All boards are manufactured in the USA, or also are manufactured in the EU?
    Where can I buy the board? I have seen that is sold on the web of Magicseaweed in England.
    Is it better to buy in a web of USA? Which one?

    Thx

    you'd be killing it with the 5'8. See I do a lot of my surfing in VB where the waves too are on average 0-5.5 feet. Our body sizes are similar, I'm just a couple inches taller and couple pounds lighter than you and I ride a board very similar to the 5'8 dwart MOST of the time.

    I have had an Apache for a year and a half now, and it is easily the board I ride the most. Thing works in anything from Assa waist high mushburgers to overhead suckouts at ss.

    Dwart Owner

    I have owned 6.o poly dwart for 2 years now.

    I bought it as a small wave board in S. Florida surf. I have used it as a quad only with vector II fins.

    I am 6' 200 pounds.

    This board works great for me. While yes, it does struggle a little getting on smaller waves, once on, this board is very manuverable. It is very quick rail to rail, almost too quick. It takes a little time to get used to.

    I have riden this thing from knee high to OH waves. It is best in waist high surf.

    I would buy one if you wanted to add a fish/spoon like board to your quiver.

    Hi Angel,

    I have a 5'8" dwart . I tried the 5'6" and really liked it . I'm 6'1" 190lbs . The Dwart has alot of foam . take a look at the stock dimension chart especially the volume.that should help you decide. Here's the description from the shaper.

    there is also a 'T-dwart" out this year ,,, thinned out quite a bit more than the original.

    take care all ~

    Hi Henny:

    Thank you for the answer.

    I LOVE the foam, because I'm 36 years old, jajajajajaaja

    I've been calculate my Piranha volume (6’0”-20”-2”1/2) and is about 35l, similar than the 5.10 with 36.3l, and more than the 5.8 with 33.6l. The 5.6 has 31.2l with size 5’6”-20”1/4-2.56”
    I think that the 5.6 is little for me.

    I' know that the 5.8” Dawrt is wider and thicker, but do enough to compensate for the Piranha volume?

    Piranha 6’0”- 20”-2”1/2 --- V = 35 l
    Dwart 5.10” – 20 ” - 2 11/16” ---- V = 36 l
    Dwart 5.8” – 20 ” – 2 5/8” ----- V = 33 l

    Thx

    36 ? you're younger than me , lighter than me and get better surf !

    so you'll do fine on a 5'8" as Xtremeliquidshredda said ! Any bigger it will feel like a boat !

    Regarding volume : Keep in mind the Dwart carries more under your chest and the nose,with the widepoint more forward than a Piranha so It catches waves easily and generates instant speed on takeoff . The rusty "quadratic formula" places the fins closer to the stringer . So you get the speed of a quad with the pivot of a thruster. I like the stretch quad template. I haven't ridden it as a thruster.
    ~ good luck
