    Default Zap comp carbon

    Does anyone here have the zap comp carbon. I'm either gonna get that or the boomhower pro model. I hear the boomhower is better but I can get the zap comp carbon for so much cheaper. Can anyone tell me a little more about the comp carbon.

    the carbon comp isnt shape to his personal specs his board is more toward what he likes and high performance, so you could hit Florida liners to charging the wedge with the boomhower but with the carbon comp you could do the the same but its just more of a standard carbon nothing special about it really just a board designed to charge big waves and also be able to hold a line. im not sure of this but you maybe able to customize it to some of your own specs, i know exile skimboards and velocity skimboards will let you do this. but back to those two boards i would go with a carbon comp cause it a standard shape and it can do the same as a boomhower on a wave also you may not like boomhowers specs thats my opinion and what i know about the two boards, good luck.

    oh yea no doubt about man, its can do everything the boomhower pro model can do there just different shape and different specs, dont get me wrong the comp is great and so is the boomhower its just that you may wanna go with the comp because its a standard board shape and the boomhower is boomhowers specs so you may not like but if you have ridden a boomhower and you like go with that.

    The boomhower's rails are morw boxy, so they dont grab as easily in rough conditions. its nose is also wider. i like it over the comp because it has more float.

    I think you should just ride them both, and see what you like. Also, ignore the weight limits, and try different sized boards. Im 160, and ride a boomhower ml, and com m size

    It all comes down to personal preference but my boom is my favorite board I've ever owned.
