Katy has used her new Performance Nose-Rider a few time now….. and it is “Thumbs Up”
Although only surfing in medium to small, less than perfect waves in “The Bay” at Newquay. Katy has given her new Performance Nose-Rider a glowing review. “FAST”….. along the wave was the main word she used. “TURNS” well off the tail was second comment, and still “Nose-Rides” well was the final, but slightly disappointing remark.
I have already told her, that all boards come with a measure of compromise…. sounds like this board has more “Performance” than “Nose-Ride” built in as standard.
This is not so bad, as Katy’s second board is a 9′ 0″ version of my “New Trad’ Nose”
I am hoping that the Traditional Nose-Rider will excel in Tip Time capability.
Katy’s says she is looking forward to using the new board at the next BLU Longboard Comp’ at Crantock this coming week-end. Conditions will not be perfect, forecast is for medium swell, but cross shore winds….. I hope she enjoys the event.
