STUBBY VS. GRIP
Choose the Stubby TE over the Grip for:
The Stubby TE will flatter your technique, particularly in poorer conditions and/or lower ability levels. Makes onshore conditions more fun with more turns per wave and more jumps. The compact shape feels looser, snappier and easier for sliding tricks than the Grip.
Choose the Stubby TE over the FreeWave STB for:
If your only focus is wave sailing. In waves, the Stubby TE offers a more reactive, snappier performance and the shorter length feels better for both wave riding and rotating jumps.
