Just looking for some general advice on the difference board shape makes on strapless boards.
I started to learn riding strapless in Cape Verde a few weeks ago, the board I used was one of these:
it's a kiteloose nirvana. I didn't pay a lot of attention at the time, but looking at it now it's not as pointy as other boards.
I'm guessing the pointier a board is the more focussed on waves it is?
I'm not going to get a chance to demo different boards, but as an experienced rider coming from 10 years of riding twin tips, what difference should I expect between a board like the one pictured and a more classic shaped wave board? Is there any?
I don't do tricks anymore (hot landing, snapped ankle
) and generally just free riding in chop and 3-5 ft swell
