Hi All, thought I would drop a line on my experience of the new Super Frank 7'6 Lean - in short, absolutely love it!!!! Went from a Striker 9'5 to the 7'6 SF Wide (115L) - currently weigh 82kg. Got the board about 3 months ago- for the first few weeks didn't like it as much, kept falling in and found what everyone else was experiencing going from a long to a shorter board with the front-back tippy feel - takes time to find that sweet spot. Anyway after a week away in Hat Head and catching waves every day I realised the potential of a small board with nice easy turns on the wave and why I wanted a smaller board. I have come back wanting something smaller again in litres as I have got use to the amazing stability of the board for it's size. I wondered if the 7'6 lean (100 litres) would be the way to go! Good news my mate loved this board so sold it to him and took the risk of buying the less volume version. Only been out on it once since I got it 2 days ago and was ideal as it was very choppy and keen to know if I could use this comfortably in those conditions - for some weird reason I found it easier than the 7'6 wide - perhaps its lower to the water or the plane of the board is easier to get going, I don't know but I love it! Anyway for whatever size of Super Frank you should get don't doubt the stability as the design is amazing and the tail is still narrow for turning, unlike the Hypernut! Awesome board - I hope by next year Jimmy will make an ultra lean version as I would get one lol!
