Phil snakker om brett

Siden Phil flyttet til Norge for litt over tre år siden har stilen på brettene hans forandret seg mye. Tidligere surfet han mye på strendene langs kysten av Australia, og brettene han surfet var både smalere og lengre. Nå er boardshorts byttet ut med heldekkende våtdrakt. Det er Saltstein som gjelder og brettene Phil foretrekker her er kortere, har mer fylde og må passe til forholdene. Her snakker Phil om hvilke brett han surfer på Steinen og hvorfor.

Lost Bottom Feeder: I have been riding a 5'8 for the last 12 months. It is really in its element at knee-waist high. It's main advantage over the other boards is the speed you can gain in tiny waves, which means you can go for turns on waves you would otherwise be flapping your arms like a wounded seagull. Despite the way it looks its actually very easy to turn. This is the board I grab when it's small and mushy on the peak at Saltstein.

Channel Islands Neck Beard: My board is a 5'10. This is one of the funnest boards I have ridden. It is probabaly best in knee high to head, but doesn't generate the same speed as the Bottom Feeder in the small stuff. I find it perfect in waist to shoulder high. Despite the shape it holds its rail surprisingly well although it is very easy to release the tail through a snap or even a cutback. In the bigger stuff I find it a bit loose, but you could easily put in some bigger fins to help stiffen it up a bit. I ride this on the peak at Saltstein when it starts to get bigger and the inside right when it starts breaking.

Channel Islands Weirdo Ripper: This is my newest addition and replacement for my Neck Beard, and so far I love it. On your first look its very similar to the Neck Beard aside from the tail which is a lot more refined with the swallow tail. It also has a little more rocker in the tail. How it feels in comparison is a little less speed over the dead sections but more control in steeper sections. It feels more responsive through turns and still has a lot of release in the tail. I will grab this board in the same conditions I used the Neck Beard in.

Channel Islands Fred Rubble: This is my step up and is 6'1. It effectively very similar to the Neck Beard and the Weirdo Ripper, just more refined all over. It still has width which makes it easy to paddle but it has more rocker and a smaller squash tail. What this translate to on the wave is more drive and control in bigger and steeper waves but still plenty of speed in the mushy stuff and release when you want it. I ride this on the bigger days on the inside right.
