I am loving my carbon x "copy" way better than the broadcast I was riding. Took a while to get used to the quickness. The broadcast is like a Cadillac and my board is more like a Porsche! Not bagging on the HL just different, everyone in my crew loves it too
Anyway I am going to try another, thinner this time and maybe the traction pad recessed in. I was thinking maybe 6" longer and a bit more rocker in the tip. How would it ride if I basically just stretched the shape? Would it need to be wider? How would less "arc" in the sidecut effect the ride? Probably go with (2) 2-2.5" fins again angled towards the nose.
Would a 3 fin set-up slow down the responsiveness? This board would be for more beginner-intermediate riders.
