  More slice, less splash
  Posted by: Marshall on May-23-12 12:25 PM (EST)
 

There is a difference in the feel and the effect between the displacement hull and planing hull design. Definitely less splash and bash with the plum bow sort of design without much pearling into the wave. I've paddled into chop but only have caught some boat wakes as far as riding waves. The Tahoes are very straight tracking so no cut backs or other surf techniques.

Something I thought was wild was that the board seems stiff enough to reverberate the vibration caused by the chop though out the length of the board creating something of a cross between a massage for your toes and minor earth tremor. This was in about 1 foot high chop.

My observations. YMMV

See you on the water,
