    Hey all,
    I am looking at possibly getting into an astro 58. Any opinions, good, bad, or otherwise would be appreciated.

    i got my astro 58 in june and loved it, it’fast surf well and carve. the outfitting is confortable and got place for my foot
    it’s also well balance and easy to throw ends with it the only thing mising is something like an happy feet system to be more confortable

    Hi

    Best hull I have ever paddled, hands down! Awesome on the small features, fun, stable. Can’t comment on the big surf.

    Worst outfitting I have ever sat in. I was in agony within minutes and the only relief was to get out and stand up.

    Now that’s just me. Many people like the seating positions and so on.
    But, there are other critical posts on the board about the Riot outfitting, in terms of quality etc…

    I would consider the Astro 58 if I am willing to rip out the gear and refit it to my own comfortable position. I’ll wait for the used ones before I do that.
