Caught a short session before dark. The wife was with me surfing her JL 10, so I had a chance to swap boards for an instant comparison.
The Angulo paddles with more speed, making paddling out faster, and catching waves easier. The JL felt stuck in the mud. But being fair, I think that is partly due to less volume on the JL. It rides low at my weight.
On a wave, the JL wins for speed.
Can't really judge how loose either are without bigger waves.
The Angulo nose scoop is less than the JL, so a little adjustment was required dropping in. If you can call it dropping in when the waves are so small. The lower nose scoop does not hurt the Angulo paddling out. The pulled nose punches through waves nicely. Wouldn't ever want to return to the pug nose of the JL 11. It was like hitting a wall with that thing. Get it wrong, and the wave sends you backwards faster than you went forward.
The board has some leash plugs running down the centerline for attaching handles. All the Angulos I've seen photos of before never showed this. People tend to cover them with the pad. My board has the split Dakine pad so these fittings are accessible.
The wife was all smiles surfing the Angulo because it catches impossibly small waves the JL won't catch. She got a huge kick out of how easy it was.
