I'm looking for a first time short board. I WAS looking for something (
something sensible) around 290 in length, maybe an old BIC Astro Rock
or a Rock and Roll....
But now I've been offered this F2 Sunset Slalom at a very nice price. I
know these are very old boards I'm talking about, but I see no sense in
investing lots of cash in equipment at this stage.
The thing is, the F2 is only 280 with only 100 litres of bouyancy. So
it might be too radical for me. Someone told me also that the mast
track is placed very far forward on the board and so it nose dives a
I haven't been able to try it out yet because the weather in Ireland is
completely wacko at the moment. Like, no wind and a beatiful warm
sunny day last Sunday, in November for chrissakes??
Anyway, I'd appreciate any words of wisdom from anyone who has ever
used one of these Sunset Slaloms.
