Simmons shape boards are definitely fast but those wide tails remind me of "one turn wonders".  After owning and riding a few, I found they like to make one turn then race down the line.  Cool if that's what you're into.  However, I prefer continuous turns and quick cutbacks that narrower tail boards provide.

If you liked the Hammer, try a JL Destroyer.  The JL is a much better all around surf board. I've had a couple Hammers.

Just wondering if anyone is using XM surf leash? And what your thoughts are on them?

XM leashes are good, two thumbs up because that's what I use on my boards.   8)

Kenalu's are nice paddles but that Mana 90 blade is an unusual beast.  It was the first blade to cause huge shoulder pain for me.  Switched paddles and no problems since.

Beaches in Charleston, SC are now closed for 2 months to non-beach residents!  Seems ridiculous.  Another example of provincial, protective mentality here to privatize the beaches. It's been building for years and started with yearly increasing parking restrictions. Island/Beach leaders grasp every opportunity possible to shut down beach access to non-residents, it's really messed up.  Don't move to Charleston SC for it's beaches unless you are wealthy enough to buy island/beach property.

Is Erik still shaping and offering these?  Looks like he's only into foiling nowadays.

Still mid 80*'s-90* in South Carolina 8).  Ocean water is currently a cool 83*.  Lived in HR for many years, great place but could no longer handle the short summers.

I love JL boards and that's all I've been riding for the last 5 years.  I have one board with the older black pad and another with the newer grey pad.  The newer grey pad is definitely more slippery.  Both have the diamond pattern.  In comparing the two, the black pad has some texture on top of the diamonds but the newer grey pad has a smooth surface on top of the diamonds. I think the smooth surface on the diamonds is what makes the newer pad more slippery.  I don't judge boards by the pads, however, I do appreciate good grip.  If I can't get a pad with good grip, I'd rather have no pad (and add my own) rather than have a slippery pad that is dangerous and a pain in the a$$ to remove.

The newer lighter colored pads on JL boards are slippery.  The older black pads had much better grip.  Idk why they changed?  They really need to fix.

Yes nice score, I would pick up an 8'6" SF Lean in a heartbeat.  Great board for small to medium conditions. Sold my 8'er.  Still trying to decide if I should get an 8'6" SF Lean or go with the Destroyer MP 8'5"?

I feel ya, I'm in SC.  The best wave season is late summer & fall when the tropical storms & hurricanes roll by.  Otherwise, it's mostly mid tide or wind swell surfing that requires being at the beach to git sum.

I've been thinking of trying the Super Frank as a twin.   8)

The SF works great as a twin with small trailer fin.  I rode my SF/lean as a twin with a 3.25" trailer for over a year. It worked great, quick turning & faster with less drag.  Also, as a quad, with cheap Futures Thermotech trailers (better cant angle than expensive trailers), I fount the SF had similar performance and slightly more stability.

I really like the shape and size of that SMIK tho, I may be in Luuuv.
