I have a Brokite (formerly Zero Gravity) out of Texas. I ride in Chicago and love it so I'll share some thoughts. I've ridden Slingshot boards, Crazyfly, North, Naish, etc etc etc. I used to ride Fuels now on SS RPMs.plummet wrote:The nomad boards also look sweet. brokite aswell.
The Brokite board is very smooth when tacking...here in Chicago it is all wind driven and can get choppy on the good days. The Brokite smooths the ride quite a bit. I was just telling a friend about someone's comment that borrowed my board. When done the comment I got was "compared to my board it felt like I didn't even have a board on my feet". A good carbon board will be less tiresome and spaztic in choppy conditions making the ride smoother and the day more fun. Compared to an OEM board, the Brokite is a sweet ride and I'll never go back to mass produced boards.Things to watch for with carbon is the stiffness and the springback. They tend to be stiffer and or snap back into shape after flexing faster than glass. That makes for a livelier ride than your glass alternative.
- concave ≠ channels, try and ride that thing finless...surfboy1968 wrote:Hey Frankie82, maybe you should do your homework first.... elliptical concave bottom and reactive continous rocker... the handle is for extra style points !!!!
