I took a G-Force and it was fine. Comfort is a huge issue. I wish I had my EZG then, b/c it would have made it a little nicer, but still it wasn't a big deal. There were a surprising number of small holes that we could play in with spuds. My bro took a Switch, and was able to catch a couple more waves, but paid for it with foot pain. I would say go spud or go big (Fly, H3, Diesel, Hammer). Don't take something that gives a marginal return on play in exchange for pain like my friend did.
Really, just ask yourself, would I rather front surf really big waves (fast), or would I rather huck over them (air!) -- that will tell you which boat to bring.
Join up, suckas.
