The Naish 7'3" looks amazing. I'm currently working on persuading the wife that "we" need one! Maybe by next summer...

Excluding Jacky riding one (plus you did say "man" up), I can only throw 3 names out that could handle the 7'3....I know I don't have a prayer.

They are available NOW!

The big brother to it (7'8) has shipped from the Miami warehouse and is headed to Coastal Urge now. The 7'8 coming, is mine!

Balance yes. Catch a wave, probably not. Although it would be a good training tool for balance

Is there a difference between board designs that reduce yawing? At the same paddling speeds,do boards "yaw" less for lighter or shorter individuals?

I find the limitation of the shorter boards to be when I need to chase down a wave to get into position.
