Big playboat

Post by jimdriftwood »

I have a Wavesport Project 62 for sale, I brought it after testing it in the surf - huge air and reasonable speed for a plastic boat (I usually surf a cabon mega Marauder). Too much creeking and overseas trip to Norway means playboat up for sale, 550 pounds or there abouts. Can deliver to the south.

ive got a pyranha s6x 195 for sale! its great anywhere ive ever taken it. im always in the surf in pembroke and its fun as hell, quick take off (for a playboat), carves well, loads of pop and a fairly loose hull. it also has the advantage of a fin box (i dont have any fins tho) if you so desire. it also performs well playboating and ive had it down grade 4's too. if im honest its slightly too big for me hence the sale...£375. how much do you weigh by the way?

I think you would find it a bit of a squeeze

well big EZ may be an option. More of a playful river runner. With your size you should be able to throw it round and i've used it upto grade 5 with relative ease (meant it could cope and got through stuff) great on surf. Based in cardiff 350

I've got a Riot Big Dom 54 if you're interested, it is fantastic in the surf and the river. It is the playboat designed for the larger paddler!!

If you are interested and want some more info get hold of me on justinaleman@hotmail.com

Have a good one
