^ I haven't seen the x28
It's far racier than your old JL Maliko. Does keep the magic turnability.. Check the pics, pretty much speaks for itself.
I thought a guy near you had one.
You should try the x26.5 as allround board
Yeah, there are some pics of the 14x28 elsewhere on this forum. I'd actually be more interested in that than the 26.5 because I already have so many narrowish all-round type boards for mild downwinding (Vapor 14x26; Ace 15x25; Sidewinder 14x23) as well as Bullet V1s and V2s (27" wide) plus two 30" wide 14ft DW boards for totally ballistic conditions. So actually the 28 might fit the quiver better, as a big conditions DW board, or if I'm just feeling lazy. Plus, that blue JL 14x28 is just so amazingly gorgeous. Wow, I love the look and graphics of that board. That's how a board should look IMO. It looks like a grown-up decided the paint scheme whereas IMO eg. Starboards look like a 4 year-old kid with left-over crayons designed it (and in some cases, looking up close, painted it as well
