Fun session on the new 6”10 mid today in peaky shoulder high windswell. Real squirty with the 2+1 set up, goes great backhand, high and tight. Hi GSTK 😃

How is it to duck dive?

I surfed the new midlength/step-up hybrid at the super bank in 3ft wind swell this arvo.

Put some bites in it now.
7.5” admiral futures flex fin with modii mini bites 2.8”

Went well.
When the wave bowled out it was excellent.
Can’t wait to surf it in some proper waves.

Easy. It’s pretty low volume for a midlength. Just scoop your duck dive, start a touch earlier, and use your foot on the tail if you have to

I duckdive my 7ft midlength pretty easily up to 4ft.

Duck diving is mainly about nose area.
7’ or 7’6” no problem with a pointy nose.
If you can nose ride it then it’s not going to duck dive well.
