Ride vs mega

I have been paddling a Mega boost xtech in North Wales for a couple of years and am considering my next boat. I like the boost and find it easy to surf in the random surf of North Wales. I would be interested to hear if anyone can compare surfing a boost to one of the Ride HP boats. Thanks in advance.

That's a minefield !
If I heard right, there may be some demos going to be resident at Snowdonia wave park at some point but that is just a rumour.
To be fair your better off demoing the various makes/models you're interested in at the same venue which really means going to a comp. Next one is August but in N Devon which is a way for you. It's personal preference like so many things
