Started with the Goya Custom 3 Pro 98 with Flight Zorro 5.6, unfortunately the wind was quickly gone. Then Fanatic Viper 85 with Goya Banzai Pro 5.0. After lunch RRD FreestyleWave 96 with Flight Zorro 5.6. The Goya Custom 3 Pro 98 tried. Lesson 5: Short-board tacks: the more you bend your knees the more stable and easier. [Read...]
