Gurus - thinking about a two board quiver. One will be 10ft by 29 or 30. Anyone have reports on the infinity new deal or sunova equivalent. The McKee 10ft looks nice and there are good reports from this forum on that board. Should I look at fanatic or smik??? Cheers

If you have the $$$ go the Infinity New Deal, if you have a bit of a budget go the Smik, if a tighter budget Mckee looks awesome value!

If you don't look at a Smik then I'd suggest psychiatry because you'd be mad if you didn't!

Agree. I have the Smilk 10'X28" style lord - an absolutely magic board - light, strong, fast, manoeuvreable - a genuine performance longboard sup. At 6'3" tall and 86 Kg I find i have to work a bit whilst waiting for a wave. If you weigh less than this, then these dimensions are worth considering

Became very frustrated regarding 10' surf SUPs with NO(Sunova,Smik,JL) stock in OZ. Luckily this one popped up in a part SMIK/Severne container so I grabbed it 10'x30" 135Lts Carbon rails @ 9.1Kg with fins, very happy as SMIK was my first pick,Support a Local

Bluehawk,

If your around Fingal Bay 2315 drop in and have a paddle on my DEEP 10'1" had her for around a year now, very well made and great to surf, awesome price and service . Simone can do a custom if you chose.......Buy Australian!

It replaced my Imagine impact that had an unfortunate meeting with some stairs and the DEEP performs as well as it did, and looks great.

Hey Blue,

Buy Australian!
I've owned a heap of boards including Naish, Deep, C4, PSH...but my Style Lord ten footer is an absolute standout.
I have the 'blown up' 32 inch model which is a dream to surf. It catches waves beautifully, and turns a treat for a big board, such are the nice subtlies shaped in. The board is a classic. It goes well in larger waves too...plenty down the line speed. I am a Kiwi but take my hat off to Aussie SUP shapers - they are top notch. My other board is a JP 9-3 quad, another superb board. Good luck, Diceman

PS the 32 inch is perfect for someone like me...98kgs, 67 years on the planet

I'm not a longboard guy (I ride very small boards), but I surfed with the New Deal 10'0 x 29" and it was magic. Lots of glide, easy to do the walk and a carving machine: fb.watch/3bN1a7mK5w/

The New Deal is awesome and I love it but there is no doubt that one brand does not suit everyone.

Agree, I am looking to getting one for the Mrs here in Oz as she hogs my Bali 10'x32 Stylelord over there. Would like to return the favor to her over here
