If you're taking on waves 10ft+ waves at Waimea Bay or Nazaré I wouldn't want to be surfing anything else. These are the boards big wave records are set on and only the most elite athletes attempt. That's not saying you can't paddle one out at your local point break when its big and enjoy flying down the line. If you're after a surfboard that can handle the large stuff but is more similar to a High Performance board visit Step Up Shortboards, these boards are more suited to the hollow waves of Indo and make great travel boards. Popular Gun models include the Pyzel - Padillac developed by XL wave chaser Mark Healy and ridden by John John Florence when he won the Eddie at Waimea Bay.
