I am looking for a good short board that is fun to play around with in choppy surf (i.e. a quad fish). I used to own a Lost round nose fish 5' 10'' but now I am looking for something new. I have looked at Firewire's Quad Fish and several epoxy custom boards but can't make up my mind. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Well, it depends on a lot of things (waves / height / weight / experience) but I would not recommend an epoxy surfboard for choppy surf conditions because of the lack of flex they have, most likely you will have a hard time. For choppy surf its better to stay with PU.
Go with the above.... Epoxy is great for clean conditions but is a hard paddle when it's chop and drifty. Local shapers know your surf and we'll set you in the best postion for a good board for your needs.
