Those Glides look pretty nice! Which one did you try in Hawaii?

NC Paddle Surfer said...

I tried the 12 footer in Hawaii.

Brian A. said...

Is 12 foot and 14 foot sizes because of the race catagories?

NC Paddle Surfer said...

Yes, the sizes are dictated by the "almost" standard racing classes.

C4 started the 14 foot racing class with the Vortice 1-1/2 years ago, in hopes others would agree and it would become "the" standard.

The reason 14 was chosen by C4 as the magic length to make standard, is you want the longest board possible to catch swells for easy planing, but going longer than 14 ft became unmanageable without adding a rudder. The C4 crew thought steering using surfing skills was more fun and rudders add drag when activated, so 14 ft is where they stopped.

But many hard core racers love going longer and using rudders, so Naish is releasing a 17-18 footer soon. Todd Bradley told me they would probably release a rudder board someday too.

What are your thoughts on the different weights and constructions. In windsurfing (racing)"light is right" for the boards. Do you find or feel that the same applies to downwind boards? Do you want the lightest board so you can pop it up on a plane when you catch a runner?

NC Paddle Surfer said...

Weight is KING. Weight is the number one reason I am building new boards this Fall. I'm going to vacuum bag the new ones.
