Tagged: Channel Islands New Flyer
Benny I just purchased a 5,8 new flyer and in surfing local so-cal shit mush its not really living up to my 5,8 neck beard. I find its only happy when the shape and wave is good.
Should I have bought the #4 instead ? and which one the Grovel or domestic ?
I thought the New Flyer would be replace my Neck beard as my all around work horse.
I just got a NF swallow tail 5 finn , love it .. Surfed so far 1-4 ft solid Sth swell too peakie 2ft suckers . #4 Looks like a 1981 Simon Anderson original ; I’ve owned an original and the NF has so much more speed which gives you drive as well with hold when you drop the rail hard down . For mush maybe a motor boat or JS revolution .
Good response, thanks stickit!
For mush, I would have thought the Blakbox would have been more suitable than the revolution if you were going for a JS board? But in terms of replacing the Neckbeard, wouldn’t the groveller version of the #4 be more similar to the NB than the domestic dimensions (Utility?). Shorter and wider
