It hasn't rained here in Tenn. for about 8 weeks, not more than a shower. I got a new board yesterday and 80% chance of rain all day. What luck? Well we need it anyways. I picked up a Grindwater Shaka for $215. I wanted a board that I wouldn't out grow the first season. Anyone rode one of these??
Sounds sweet man. Get out and ride it....idk about up in tenn. but here in AZ, if it calls for rain....I GO to the lake, no one ever out there We dont typically get alot of lighting, and winds arent normally super bad unless its a monsoon.
I got to try it out some this weekend. Spent most of the weekend trying dodge thunderstorms. I can't give an exact review of the board yet. I am still playing with the weight for the wakesurf. Sunday on our way in I moved people around and got a good surf wake, but thunderstorms were rolling in fast. I'll post more later.
