Thanks Wayne...sooo stoked! I'll post a review later next week...fun chatting with you..take care!
David thanks for stopping by it was a pleasure. Keep in touch and give me an update on the board when you get some time on it. Enjoy!
Hi Wayne. Two sessions on it so far- N. OC beachbreak 2-3' rare 4' with howling offshores yesterday and 1 to 2' some 3' fading swell, light offshores today. I'm diggin' your twin fin design! I got 2 backside barrels yesterday and one on my knees today (does that count?). I like the speed, has good hold off the bottom, and release off the top. Volume is adequate. It'll keep me in shape during the holidays. Thanks Wayne!
Dave, I hope the eps/epoxy construction doesn't feel to light in the offshore winds. One of the issues with light eps/epoxy boards is the feeling of not having enough drive to make the drops on offshore winds in comparo to regular poly. It sounds like your getting the feel for it. Are you riding it as a twin or with the small trailer? W>
Wayne, on that particular day I think the majority of guys (even on polys) were having issues staying engaged on the wave face. I've been on eps/epoxy and XTRs exclusively since the Clark foam closing so I've gotten used to the nuances of the construction. The Galaxy twin feels like the lightest epoxy board I've ever had and just feels like surfing a little toy(in a good way).
Dave,Nice, sounds like the eps was an easy adjustment for you. Just take off later and deeper! From the feedback from most of the lighter riders it's an easier adjustment. For the heavier guys that rely on drive and momentum seem to have the most difficulty with the transition. EPS/Epoxy is a viable alternative for some but I still prefer poly. Shaping and to ride...
that puppy is flat! needs canards though
