The two question I have are:
who in CO acutally stocks them? I look on there website says a ton of local shops have them, then went there and they act like they have never heard of them
how does everybody feel between the 4in and 6in boards. I can find a 2013 Star-board whopper for $950 but it is a 4in. We will mostly be doing down river stuff class 3+.
I am 6'3 190 and my Wife is 5'5 I understand the 6 in will give us more stability but [I]is it worth $600
For you I would go with 6" board and nothing less. Issue with thinner boards is they tend to flex instead of punch through white water. Even woman say they prefer thicker boards because they edge better and eddy easier.
