Topic: considering getting an AHD sea lion. Any input appreciated
I am in the market for an SUP that I can sail and am considering a sea lion. I have also considered a starboard drive or 9'8".
Sea lion costs heaps more but as it can plane (unsure of the others perhaps they can too) I am thinking seriously of getting one. I have scoured the forums for info/reviews and must have read/watched most of it. And have contacted jurg about a demo but thought i might see if anyone has recent feelings about this board.
Other random info if you can be bothered to read on:
Kited for 9 years, went back to windsurfing (stoke) last year and am still splitting time between the two. Strong wind flat water I windsurf for sure. However, last season in the waves i kited (much easier) but this season am looking to try and wave sail and thought perhaps an SUP might help me get a feel for it in lighter wind.
PS: I put together a series of vidoes on youtube aimed at preventing injuries and increasing forearm, wrist and hand strength. I am a Physiotherapist by day and i thought it might be good for windsurfers. One warning though they are long clips. You can find them here.
