Hi all ,
I am currently surfing the 2011 naish mana 9.0 and starboard pr 8.5 ,
I come from short board surfing and like to surf top to bottom in up to head high waves
West and east coast nz

I think the Mana is one of those magic shapes and I love it's ease and stability,and wave catching ability,
But I also love the pr for its manoeuvrability and size(length), Although in larger waves I find it digs the nose when dropping vertically( havent dug the Manas nose at all)
Is there a board out there that Can give me the ease of the mana with the
Turning performance and speed of the pr.

Cheers

Do you have the 2011 or 2012 PR?

I went from the 2011 PR to the Coreban Vibe 8'0 and the Vibe is great.

Less nosedigging(shorter, slightly narrower nose), just as fast and even more manoeuvrable than the PR

It took me very little time to get used to it with my 82 kg / 1.87m
