I'm not even sure stability plays that heavily into surf play and rock gardening. Last summer I demoed an anas Acuta in surf; while it felt tender, it also felt sublime in those conditions. Boats like that are slow dogs in flatwater but in heavy unpredictable conditions just seem to settle into their own. My explorer is plenty stable but it can't hold a candle to an AA in those conditions.

In my opinion, stability is something people tend to give on once they gain some experience, in exchange for other attributes. It's a relative term.
