It should be a lot easier than a Tarpon 160. I have come in on big baja surf, and managed to land. I have a Tarpon 120, and it is kind fun to surf waves in, because it is shorter, and you can lift your bow on steep waves, and manuever easier. I think you will be fine on a Tarpon 100, if you are still looking at this thread.
Below is a pic of me on my Tarpon160i.
Ok - eventually bought a Tarpon 100 - would be keen to add a rudder system to it, I know they don't come with it, but I've had a look and it seems possible. Anyone ever try doing it?
