Is Simon still at deep I have sent 3 emails over two weeks and no reply

I see one of the Jackson close board 9.0x31 at 136 litres

I am tempted by this board vs my jp surf 8,10 x30 at 126 litres

I want a lot more stability and more comfort
But I'm worried going back to 136 litres is a bit much vs the 126 I'm on now but I guess Stability is gained in both width and litres

To explain what I'm after... I like my jp surf 8,10
But 7/10 times its hard work at 90kg

So my thinking tank was ticking over any thought maybe I'm best to get another board aimed at more a intermediate

Being the Jackson close 9.0x31 136 litres these dimensions seem to be aimed at a 90kg intermediate

hi
sometimes they are not great at replying to emails, took a while when i was sussing out some boards, all of their boards are customs so if you have a chat to them when they do reply they should be able to sort you out with what you want

Yea bruiser your quite correct but I'm after performance still and the jp wide body nose won't allow that .

How about the minion, slate or hypernut options. I dumped my 8'6 jp surf due to stability issues and grabbed a 7'6 jp slate havn't event looked at another board since.

Yes possible options especially the hyper nut I'm guessing 7,8 or the 8,0

The slate would be mean but I am not convinced it would be more stable than the jp

The 7,8 minion does not seem to have that great of stability

By the deep you mention then I guess the 9.0 x31 at 136 litres is a bit big then

Mate I ride my 7'8 in chop , glass, wind, onshore,offshore.small, overhead.pretty much anything if there are waves..IMO it has great stability..as good if not better than my 8'10 prowave... yeah personally for me anything over 115L I see as too big now after riding my minion

I had a Slate which was MORE stable than an 8'8" custom!

A buddy has both the JP 8'6" Surf, and the 7'6" Slate and his experience was - surprise- similar to Matty! Way more stable, he may even sell his 8'6"..Just sayin'..

The lateral stability on the slate style boards isnt any better but what makes up for it is the nose and tail dont sink so you only have to concentrate on not falling off the sides. I think its the easiest way to get a board that performs and is relatively stable. Other wise id be on a 8'10 traditional or 8'2 widebody style board.

Yes I agree that's why I like my jp surf 8,10 But I would like a step up in stability comfort

So best to stick to traditional shapes
I think jumping to a 136 litres deep Jackson close might be going to big/floaty etc
Then again I have no idea

Hi Foam

I have a JP Surf 8'10" I bought several years ago (2013) before the new shape so while its still 126 Lt. I think it has a little more tail and nose area and slightly less rocker than the new model
I find it less stable in chop than other boards its size or even smaller boards for that matter.
I have a 7'11" Fanatic Allwave which I ride as well so I wouldn't say its lack of ability causing these stability issues.
I am about 80Kg and I feel it floats quite high in the water which I think causes the pitching. Sometimes rails that are a little lower in the water seem to be more stable.
It also has a fairly flat bottom with subtle contours as opposed to a pronounced concave.
I run it with Jackson Close fins. The original larger fins it came with do add a lot more stability waiting in the line up but they reduced performance.
Having said all that I do like the way the board performs, it carves nicely and the whole rail works for you. A little instability is worth the results on the wave in my opinion.
Its a good board, I wouldn't change it for a board you couldn't demo in similar conditions as I have demo'd boards that I thought would suit me but didn't.

Yes very true, mine is 2015 I have has the last two days the best sessions to date on it 7 hours and stability was good .
But if jp had a 8,10 130 litres and 31 wide surf I would be all over it.

Yes it does surf very well I have changed my stance a little and standing slightly further back which is making things a bit easier.
I think at 90kg it's perfect in size and litres if clean or even semi clean but add adverse conditions at my weight and it's hard work.
But I do injoy the board 70 percent of the time but like I mentioned if jp has a board a steep down for comfort this would be great but in the jp surf shape.

Simon surfs and has a family. Patience pays off. I'm currently trying to figure out how to get a 5th deep board past "she who must be obeyed"........
