Got my Nomad CC wave this week and took out today. So far so awesome - 1kg lighter than my other board, really fast, lovely flex in the tips for jumping and landing - as things stand Simons prediction that I would end up replacing the twin tip with this for everything not just waves is looking accurate.
Good to hear. They’re amazing boards. Lots of fun. Enjoy

What are you finding exactly? Must say I don’t find this to be an issue at all with mine - I find it much less prone to this than a normal tt. Easier to toeside carve without catching a tip.

Maybe is my stance..I don't know...I used a classic rectangular tt before and maybe now when planning and watch the front round rail I 'miss" in my eyes the 90° edge and put without to want weight in the front leg and nose diving which is dangerous.....just a thought

If it’s any help I ride it exactly like my TT before it, no change in weight or stance other than you can do much nicer carves with it. I do remember it feeling weird for the first few sessions so maybe you just need to give it time.

Thank you andylc..."ride it exactly like my TT before"..maybe this is my fault, because I tried to ride it as an OR Mako meaning more equal weight on both feet

I don't have a Nomad wave twintip, but because it is a twintip I think you must load your rear foot exactly as you would with a 'normal' twintip.

Hallo again...after 4 sessions what I felt is that the board feeling loose under my feet, I can't describe it better.The fins are 50mm, because of the concave do I need bigger fins?..Is my stance?...is the board like that?..I don't know..the only I know is that I don't feel happy

Compared to my last board (Lieuwe Shotgun) I found it a bit locked in by comparison, so the opposite of what you report. Bigger than 50mm would be quite large, woukd think Simon might be the best bet to ask, he knows more about his own boards than any of us.
