Had a rough go at it recently. Other PA owners might find this of interest. All I can say is that the design of the PA may need to be looked at with regards to the scuppers under the Vantage seat. When the front footwell was filled with water and breakers continuing to crash into me, the PA became very unstable due to the water not evacuating out quick enough. The scuppers are actually elevated relative to the rest of the deck due to the bolsters inside the hull to support the seat. The drive opening doesn't evacuate quick enough for large breakers btw.

Loved my Pro Angler 14s while I had them for over two years, but now I know not to use them in breakers with short sets. I'm sure it handles smaller sets just fine, but 3'+ breakers heading out and 5'+ on the return is a no go :shock:

Seeing Red (the hunt for bull reds over 46")....

Enjoy!
