agree on the speed and surfing ability of the GP. Very true.
I also like its really solid secondary and the "edgy" feel it has. It is also surprisingly maneuverable, but sometimes seems to get "locked in" when on a wave and sometimes is locked on the wrong direction.
The Nordkapp may be a little more controllable on a wave...??? It also may be a little more refined in its ability to respond to slight nuances in edging, etc. This ability to respond to slight nuances is what also makes it a bit unforgiving I think.
True that they are not as fast an an Epic on the flats, but are both reasonably fast. and in textured water they could probably stay pretty close.
