  • 5ft 11 el fuego diamond tail in Bali?

    To start with I love this board. I'm off there next July but a little concerned with how it may perform in more sucky waves. How do you think it might go in Bali 's Bukit? Probably mainly Ulus..
    I'm an intermediate-advanced surfer. 6ft1 and 80kg.

    As long as you get it early it'll hold the line well and race through some nice tubes. I wouldn't be too keen on some vertical drops on it, but if you can get in at an angle and set the rail right away I reckon it will go well. I know Nev has had great results and Burleigh on his.
    Personally I'd probably be reaching for a more standard shortboard in Indo with something like the Fuego for chesthigh and below days.

      good stuff Prj!!

      yeah it will perform really well, BUT it will depend on your comfort taking off on a flatter board. lots of people like the flat entry for hollow waves, the time it becomes difficult is if you are airs dropping...then the flat rocker can be tough!
