The best way to figure out what board works best under your feet isn’t through online liter calculators or unsolicited advice from your friend. It’s through the act of riding a bunch of very different boards and getting a firsthand feel for different specs, rail thicknesses, and tail shapes. And getting your hands on different whip sticks at a more affordable price is made possible through places like SurfboardBroker, where you can buy high quality used boards. The guys at SB recently took a few boards of their racks and had their team riders Flynn Novak, Schuyler Allen, and Kevin Mez give ’em a go at Rocky Point. The trio demonstrates what it’s like to put an unfamiliar board through its paces with an open mind (and a lot of talent, of course). Take notes and enjoy.
