if someone gets a sneak peek or demos one in advance. Please put a review up
Got any pics of the board?
This just in..... a sneak peek at the "Flash" meeting Picasstino
yup... that's Tino hisself painting up "Flash" #1
Looks awesome, both painting and shape.
It's a quad?? (Would be nice to have some center fin) .
The board comes standard as a 5 fin..
The reason you can't see the plugs in the video is because this was James's original board, the same one he is riding above.. The board went so well from the first proto there was no need to make more versions before hitting the go button for production.. So instead of making a new board for Jimmy with the new flash colors and carbon, we added it to the one he already had because he loved it so much..
The extra plugs are currently hiding under the carbon..
When are we going to learn about the shape/dimensions (and what makes it different to the Acid)?
I'm currently looking at the 8'7" flow and asked how AA how the flash differs from the flow. His reply, "much more pulled in nose and tail. It is basically a cross between the Acid and the Flow, borrowing the sound predictability of the FLOW with the rippability of the ACID". James added "More spring off the top, holds speed better and just a better all round high performance board. I'd use the flash for 90% of conditions".
Now I have a dilemma as I've paddles the 8'7" flow, so I know I like that shape and only have till the end of July to make a decision if I want to put in an order with AA in time to get a discount.
Can't wait to see this board in the shops.
Little off the flash subject.
But what is the comparison in weight of sunova board models compared to the similar boards in brands like naish, starboard, jp and even ozzy brands like deep ocean boards?? Cheers dan
