Debating this now – I’m 78 kg, looking at a Jimmy Lewis Super Frank at 7’6″ x 29.5″, 100L, it’s like a JP Surf Wide, just narrower, different outline, etc. I feel like shape makes a big difference (obviously), my primary board is 8’8″ x 29″ @ 112L, no issues at all. I’m just not sure how the fore/aft stability will be on a 7’6″ board, the 8′ version is 115L, which seems like too much volume. Thoughts?

I saw a 7’11 x 30″ x 115 L which is a big jump but I would take as 2nd board for better days, it has a good price and I… Read more »

I did it. First paddle out with no really flat water pretty tricky, need practice but I am happy to try….and I have a back up solution. I shouldn’t miss waves 😉
