Hi Dogman,
Nice vids man.
Tell me about the 10'2", what volume is it and how much does it weigh?
I'm in the market for a new board and that is appealing.
Cheers,
Ken.

hi Kenny

the 10'2 is a great all-round board flat water fun paddling and shreds in the waves

my favourite longboard style sup in the demo fleet

there is a demo board at the JM SUP CO at palm beach goldcoast....

that and the gerry lopez 12'6 have been glued to my feet for the last 3 months

I am wondering how much nose lift it has? I see it is fairly pulled in. Is it able to be nose ridden like a longboard?
I notice that when you go to the nose you stop about a foot from the tip, then the tail tends to lift out of the face, it appears that this may be more of a stretched shortboard. Is that how you'd describe it?

BTW, I am on the sunshine coast, do you know if there is a demo round here?

Cheers,
Ken.

Hey Kenny,

I have the 8'6" and Yes it's actually quite good to nose ride. I am sure there are lots of better nose riding options but as far as being a great allrounder, it does the job great.

hi kenny as jay said they are are all good nose riders.

that is what they are designed for being a "noosa point break weapon of mass destruction.

i have tiny fins in the board in those video's

n use them so the tail will bust free cause thats what i love doing "helicopter madness"

im not a nose rider type of guy

and have never really ridden a mal before so i couldnt do it to save my life

but guys like paul jones for the sunny coast n scotty downing from wollongong swear by the design for nose riding

and both can seriously shred on these boards

with a large rear fin the boards tend to lock into the groove and offer some good down the line controlled "tip time"

hope that sort of answers your question and helps you out

rock on buddy

After seeing you in boardshorts I have confirmed to myself I'm not gay. Were you channeling your inner plumber? For Christsakes get a boardshort sponsorship!!! The surfing on the other hand was brilliant. Would have been nice to see the 9'1" in action. What's the stability like @ 122 litres in light crosshore Mr Angourie?

the new grip installed and ready for carving tomorrow as there is only 2 ft of surf around at the moment which it loves to perform in

Hi Dogman,
I'm from sydney, is any chance to try the 9'1 and 10'2? Do u know demo boards down here? Im not sure which one would be the best for me. I need a performance like board with a bit of stability. I tried the 9'8 Jamie Mitchell last week but felt a bit unstable on it.
