I agree with the otherwise not to pick it as your only board in Bali. Although, i 'd really like to surf Medewi on a sp, i brought a short fat fish and had plenty of fun on the fat long rather slow lefts in medewi.
Having a good time on my sp this week in fairly hollow 3 foot waves in France. But fat waves are deffo the sp's favorite.
My last Indo trip I took a spitfire and over the course of 10 days it only got wet twice. Even the small waves around there have juice and shape. I took 3 boards last trip, the spit as small wave groveller, Hellfire as an allrounder and a 6'8 step up. Next trip I think I'll just take 2, an allrounder and a step up. Probably both HRs.
IF the SP is all you've got then if you stay at somewhere like The Chillhouse they'll put you onto waves that would be OK for your SP.
Hey thanks for all the responses much appreciated.
I recently bought 5'4'' SP and can't get off the thing! Ive stopped taking any other board but I have only surfed it in 2-4 foot banks. I havnt been able to fault it. I have a few other boards I know would be fine for bali although just so impressed with this SP I thought Id get some opinions.
@Slowman I actually am staying at the Chillhouse although Im hoping to get to surf some hollow points whilst I'm there so looks like ill take the advice and leave the SP at home.
Hey All, use my Firewire email, email@example.com for emergency issues, not my forum inbox. However, please avoid contacting me directly with questions on choosing a board, just use the glorious forum. Cheers!
