Retro Play Boats...

Back in the day I liked the wave sport zg 54 and the dagger g-force. It was so long ago that I can't remember which one was faster/looser on a wave.

Who remembers?

What are some of the other older play boats that still kick ass?

Hated the zg.

Thought the gfoce was better but still to this day I am surprised at the X.

It was hard to out front surf the sleek!

I usually don't call bs on posts, but I had a sleek. The thing was ONLY made to front surf- big volume up front, super slicey, low volume stern.

G force 6.3 Loved that boat on the upper Gauley. Punched holes...... Easy to roll..... Fun to surf........ And light on the shoulder.
5'7" 190lbs. The boat was too big for me to throwdown....... But I never could really throwdown.

Sorry man, I mis-read your post. Yes, the sleek was a surf machine!

I paddle a Big EZ unless I'm using my creek boat, I even have a backup Big EZ for when I inevitably break it.

I learned how to paddle in a G Force... I'm a bit too big for it now, so have passed it on to our 10 year old.
The S6 is another boat still in our fleet... some dude got 2nd place in the Green River Rodeo with it.
We still have a Prijon Alien too... maybe it's time to update our playboats...
