Hi guys,

Could you please help? I am a bit stuck and cannot decide which is the right board for me. At the moment only this two boards are available. I have looked in to Sunova steeze, Smik style loard, Mana, but they are not available at the monent and I have to wait 3-4 months if I order.


Here is a few info about myself: Hight: 173cm. Weight: 65 kg, Age:50 years old. I own an iSup (10'0'' Quatro Glide Air Inflatable) for 5 years now and I have used many different boards (hard and inflatable) and I can say that I am a confident paddler. I have also surfed a bit in the past up to head high waves but I always considered myself as a beginner surfer (no much turning) and I have not surfed for the past 3 years.



I leave in the mediteranian so there are no powerful oceanic waves and we are always on the chase for good waves but I am getting too old for this now ??. So, I am looking to getting in to sup surfing where I can easily catch knee to waist high waves (head high waves the most). I need your expert advice in choosing my first sup surf board.




I would appreciate your feedback

Stylemaster. Better all round board for flat water and small waves. You'll always have a spot for a board like this in your quiver.

Previously owned the Fanatic 10x30.5......rate it as an all rounder, great longboard and surfs well off the tail. Handles most conditions
