Hi, could you compare this board to Starboard Wide Point 8’10 in term of stability, rowing and tight turn?
I have used a fanatic prowave 8’9 x 29,5″ and this F-One should be much more stable and surf even better because of the rocker.
I tried also a Gong MOB 8’2×32″ which is more stable but so large tail is not so good for surfing and maybe also row is worst.
What do you think?
Thank you

This would be a good test. I would say the stability of the 2 boards is about the same. But like you said the Madeiro will take the edge when it comes to performance. Thinner rails and more rocker. If you want more top end performance the Madeiro is the board over the WP. I haven’t used that Gong, so cant really comment on that one sorry. Thanks

Any chance of actually reviewing the Gong Mob Rueben?

Reuben Ellis

I have seen it and it looks fun, we are trying to get some Gong stuff sorted for review. Watch this space. Give them a mail and say you want to see their stuff on SUPboarder. Every little helps. Thanks

I had this board from Beginner/Intermediate and its very, very stable and I loved it!! It was a fantastic board and agree with Reubens comments. It took me into being a competent Intermediate from a beginner with some experience. The bottom turns are great fun and I think it surfs good in smaller less ideal waves as well as coming alive in punchier waves. This board is brilliant!!

It’s always great to hear from the paddlers who have used the boards for a while. F-One really are making some lovely shapes. Thanks for the comment 🙂
