Re: T-Belly G6

How do you find the concave deck for positioning? I really like to have my hip and elbow way over on the engaged rail (but maybe that's a finless thing) although I see stand up surfers foot position also goes over towards the engaged rail.
Do you lie in the central position for both lefts and rights?

Re: Front fin(s) ?

On my long and narrow plywood paipo, when I turn, I feel like the pivot point is at the front of the board, the back of the board just reacts by "drifting". This is when I ride on a very forward position. It doesn't always turns this way (in a gently drifting move), sometimes it just side slips (so...

Re: fiberglass/polyester + Cores PE, NRG , PP?

Flex may add soft landing to a bodyboard when landing airs, but other than that I find the stiff fiberglass board better at everything else. faster and turns better.

It will be interesting to hear your experience. I rode this board a few times. Garrett2.jpg Garrett5.jpg It was fun on fuller, down the line waves, but it didn't hold an edge in a tube as well as my current board. The board is a lot thicker than it looks - about 3". That's an extreme one! :o I see ...
