Stoked again on the 7'4 Minion!

Orewa, Auckland
Stand Up Paddle Boarding: Surfing
4:30 pm - 5:30 pm Monday. March 28. 2016
my rating 3 star rating
Wind Direction: SW Wind Strength: gentle breeze Swell Direction: Swell Size: waist Tide: Mid - Falling.

Managed to sneak away and take a punt on Orewa as the forecast was 0.4m @11secs but the cam wasn't showing much. Turned up to be greeted by waist high ground swell and not many out. Busted out the 7'4 Deep Minion @104L for a change as I haven't used it for at least 4 months and been obsessed about the 8'11 Sunova Acid @120L. In fact I was having second thoughts about the Minion as maybe the Acid would be a quiver killer?...

First wave on the Minion threw out any doubts as it took off and accelerated like nothing else and turned like a mofo! I forgot how electric the Minion is and you can get more turns in as it is so loose and fast on the wave and the top turn has loads of torque.

It is harder work to ride and I notice the ankles get a workout - but worth it!

Stoked again on the Minion!
