Re: The WetSuit Game: Patagonia R4-R5

Getting out of a Yulex chest-zip fullsuit feels like giving birth to yourself. That must be why I feel reborn after a session!

Re: ocean rodeo mako vs. nobile 666 opinions please

I learned to kite on the Mako 150. It carves beautifully and holds speed well in swell and waves. Through chop it has a fairly smooth feel, though the board itself has little flex.
