This is the one I almost got from L41. Such a bad ass board but in the end I knew the JL would be bombproof and exactly what I wanted. Jimmy talks about the “golden ratio”. Basically the rails/rocker/bottom all coming together for that perfect shape. He was a pleasure to work with and would definitely recommend him.

I bought this solely on the info from Seabreeze. It came out the same time I was looking for a board with those dimensions so it worked out great. Other boards I considered was the L41 Bruce Wayne, very similar shape, and the  portal phantom. Went with JL based mostly on construction and his experience. I knew his shape would work and the construction, fit and finish of his boards is amazing. I’m 38, 5’11”, 185. Coming of a Sunova Shroom 7’9” 105 ltrs I think.? Board was awesome but wanted to get away from the fat tail and get something I could use in all conditions.

SUP Gear Reviews / Newly Acquired / On Order / Jimmy Lewis Destroyer
« on: June 22, 2019, 05:37:22 AM »
So after some back and forth with Jimmy and a much anticipated wait I have recieved my new board! Jimmy Lewis Destroyer, 7’7” x 29” at 100 ltrs. Absoulutely exactly what I was looking for. Nice full nose coming back to pin tail. This will be my main got to board as it should handle any conditions we get here in FL. It has a nice flat deck, comfy looking pad, weighs nothing and the fit and finish of everything is absolutley amazing. Not only did I want the dimensions of this board but also wanted the bomber construction these boards have a reputation for. Military guy and definetly on a budget, this is the first board I have bought brand new and I had to buy it sight unseen so I was very nervous. But after everything I could not be happier and look forward to many fun years with her!

Just sold my Sunova Shroom (regrettably) and I think it would be hard to find a more extreme  stepped rail design. Mine was 7’9” at 104ltrs, and at 195lbs it was extremely  stable. Rails completely underwater with a bit of water on deck. Enough displacement to float while keeping super thin rails in a very compact design. And the best part was no domed deck wrecking knees and ankles. In fact the most comfortable deck to stand on I’ve owned and absolutely contributed to its stability the way you can lock your feet in.

It's a good board. I really liked the feel of it. Unfortunately not a lot of takers for 23.5" even though with the right fin it would be stable for the width.
Super stable for its width! I have gone from 26” to 24.5” and this board at 23.5” has been the most stable by far. Regularly take it for ocean paddles and surfing with no issues.

Oh man that 7’7” is exactly what I’m looking for. Nice shape, just the dimensions I’ve been looking for and the reviews on sea breeze are very promising. Shhh...don’t let my wife know!
