Great reviews. Thanks very much. Quick question: you probably said this somewhere else but I can’t find it, where do you measure width at the tail?

Thanks Geoffrey. We measure it 12″ from the back of the tail.

Thanks for the comment Rick. We are really trying to do something different to other publications. And I feel many paddlers can see that now.
Maybe over the winter we could do some sort of interview with you, written or video. Be good to hear about your background and life is SUP. I know many paddlers would love to hear from you. Thanks again Reuben

Great review and fantastic information. For what it is worth I feel the SMIK Hipster Twin should have taken 1st place and the Wedge a close 2nd. Owning both personally I feel the hipster is definitely the higher performance board. The wedge does push water from under the nose and I feel this slows the glide when picking up waves. At 6”3 100kg I could definitely feel it , the hipster definitely picks up waves easier allowing more time to set up and get in place and once in place a lot more performance from the tail. Definitely both great… Read more »

Hey Troy, Thanks for your comments great to hear your thoughts. I will share the comment with Beau also. What size boards have you got?
And you are so right about the price point and construction convo…
All stuff to throw into the mix also.
Thanks Reuben

I tottaly agree on your coment about the wedge. Slow to catch waves. Thats why i recently bought a 8.6 32 widespeed and it rocks. Thank You Supboarder.

Hi Reuben. Ive been running it quads (dave advice). Only tried it 2, on bigger waves once and on small waves the second time. Its realy fast and handles way better than the wedge (137 l wds vs 143 l the wedge). Rails are way better and allow faster transitions. Plz review that board you will love it. Thanks for your work.

I’d love one of them but infinity don’t ship to Australia. I have a 8”8 x 32 Starboard splice ( there new model) coming in a few weeks so so how that goes.

Is the Wedge much different from the previous Widepoint?
Or is it more an update in construction?

I had a 123l 8’2 jp surf wide & out of the 6 hard boards I’ve owned it’s been my least favourite – I didn’t get on with it much at all. (Partly down to the waves we get locally on the south coast). I found it slow to paddle & the quads & length meant it turned in circles trying to get paddle speed onto a wave. Maybe the 8’8 is much better for glide & tracking. The surfwide was great once on a wave but my 113l 8’6 jp surf totally smokes the surf wide on performance in… Read more »

this is really interesting and great feedback. I do agree that they should of added an extra fin box to allow it to be run as a quad.
