  Surfing a Greenlander
  Posted by: FrankNC on Jan-16-13 6:17 PM (EST)
 

So how well do these things really surf on a wave with no rocker. I've yet to see anyone do even basic maneuvers on a wave with a long straight boat like this.

I can't imagine either of these boats being good in the surf, but I'm quite new to it so please let show me.

I've seen the Romany, Capella, Deplhin, and Alchemy in the surf. They have more rocker and a much shorter waterline, but still seem really hard to turn.

I will say more length and hard chines help catch the waves but you need to turn it before it pearls and that is hard for me sometimes even in my 13 foot boat.
