This is strange Thomas. Can you try logging in on a new Internet browser. It maybe to do with your computer cache. Please let us know if this is still a problem. Sorry Reuben

Great Video, i’m a bigger rider myself beginner/ intermediate fluctuating between 90/100kg
I went for a smaller board(volume and length)and found it a struggle, it made my sessions hard work and to be honest at times not enjoyable, but got there, so getting this video out there will help us all enjoy surf sessions making them fun, safer and last longer.
Right tools for the right job.

Hey Eaglet sorry Beau is away at the moment. But I will happily give you a bit of my feedback. I’ve used both boards in the past and I feel the Fusion is a great board for its size. It’s got a good amount of glide which gets you in the waves nice and early but it’s tail shape still offers enough performance when you get back on the tail. The manner I feel is a little bit slower but has a little bit more tail with which can offer you a bit more stability. As for which one will… Read more »
