If you are just starting out, the victoria ultra vac is probably the best you can get for the amount of money. I learned on it too.
good call on the ultra travis.

the zap pro is good as much as i hate zaps it floats reallllllllly well and has exceptional turning u should proly go a large

ok, now my question, ultra or poly, is the poly worth the extra money? or does the ultra float good enough already?
03-08-2007, 07:25 PM
more of a durability issue...they are the same shape but the poly is better materials.

aight, well i guess i'll go with the ultra then, save some money. thanks

is it your first foam board?
03-08-2007, 07:33 PM
no, i started out on wood, then i bought a body glove foam board (because it was only ($60) but i can't reach a lot of waves because the rocker sucks, it's too heavy and it sinks too fast. my friend had the same board, we bought it the same time, but last weekend he bought a zap pro, so i'm looking for a new board also, but i wanna go with victoria.

if your looking for a foam board, i'd go with a large vic foamie

but yea id go with the large victoria untill you get better and plan to drop good money on a board
03-09-2007, 08:40 AM
well i decided to go with the ultra vac, then later i'll probably sell it and buy a better board when the time is right.
