Recently took my hellfire out in solid head high surf. Problem is the winter and spring has been so bad for waves on the east coast USA that I havnt ridden it since December. My potato has gotten alot more usage seems like alot of days have been in the thigh to chest range I noticed it took me a few waves to get dialed in on the hellfire. I have to admit though that I've been street surfing with my monster carver and I did carve some nice turns into the wave once I got the drop down. Any advice on transitioning from one to the other. I guess this is the curse of being an East coast surfer. It's flat or tiny or weak 80 percent of the time but when it's good it's great. I'm picking up a potatonator any day now so that will get alot of usage in 2 to 3 ft. Hopefully that will help the transition to the hf.
No announcement yet.
