I forgot you mentioned getting an infinity ski, is that a stinger? Nice looking in the photo. How long, it looks a bit longer than mine that is 8’4" I think. I’ve dedicated a month to surfing my waveski, may do the Ventura contest this year if I don’t injure myself by the middle of next month. We have gotten some clean surf with decent waves, I am much better on the ski than SUP, but I forgot what a beating you take in big surf when you are strapped on the board when things don’t go the way you want.
Wow. Cool that you still want to do the contest scene. Is Ventura part of the US Waveski sponsored events?
My stinger is 9’x26", same dimensions on paper as my Island longboard ski. However, it’s got more width and volume in the nose where I hardly ever pearl and find popping over the foam piles easy. My Island does sharper cutbacks because of the lower volume rails and 3 fin set up. The infinity can also do cutbacks, but in a more loopy fashion with it’s big single fin set up. I am enjoying it. It’s a faster more leisurely ride.
