3* Surf advice needed

Post by mountain_bikerider »

Hi all

Does anyone know of a provider that can do me a 3* surf but provide a full on surf boat for the course??
Just putting feelers out at the moment so no dates in mind so just really looking for options.

I would try getting in touch with Fergus Lynch at Adventure Sunderland. He is very good indeed.

If you have a hard-chined whitewater boat available to you, I'd suggest you use that (e.g. Dagger Axiom or possibly even the Jackson Fun series, or Fun-Runner).

I would say that a full-on surf boat can take some considerable getting used to, and a 3* surf course may not really be a good time to be doing that.

Another thing I would say is - ensure the boat's trim is set up to anchor the stern (but only just so, so if on flat water in wind, it gradually turns to point away from the wind). This would make the boat less likely to broach at speed.
