Re: Is the Cabrinha Double Agent a good board to start with?

NO! Flew one once, that was enough! Slow, draggy, heavy, and funny not so stable? But that was older model maybe not the same I hope now? I feel Sling shot STRUT selection great and MUCH better overall set up. Yes still heavy but flies well. As for shorter STRUT, IMHO ONLY reason is shallow H2O! and...

Have bought aqua sure and will test it next fix. Not sure I like that it does not "melt","vulconize" like a bike inner ...

Re: Liquid Force Rocket vs Liquid Force Galazy vs Slingshot Dwarfcraft Boards

Lf rocket is heavy and a dog. That said, I've fixed a LF happy foil board and other Lf surfboard and the construction is cheap. :thumb: Also like their FUNNY FOIL, lots of marketing hype with very limited performance! I feel sorry for SO many guys who bought said FUNNY foil only to find out what a ...
