Loved it, especially with Frank!  What a great vibe.  Your crowd looks more civilized than our crew.  Don't run over the ski guy!

Thanks Bill.. That Frank Sinatra song is from the new Blade Runner film soundtrack.

I like it.. The first one (2016) was awesome.. The second (2017) was even better.. and the new 2018 is even better again.. Can't wait to get it out in some real wind.

It's noticeably different with the change in the nose along with a slight change in the bottom shape.. It's nice to see a little more volume in the nose area along with a slightly thicker tail.

^ any changes to the rocker? You still on x28?

Pics or it didn't happen.  ;)

Your videos are always great. An added twist is as we dig around to find where we put our booties in spring you guys are starting to wear just trunks. I'm going to miss summer. I hate wearing shoes. (ski boots, I don't mind)

Nice to see you finally got it. Judging by your comment the "Quick Tip" was a false alarm.
I'm sure you don't mind the extra nose rocker either. I guess we'll see it in action soon...

I'm already half deaf and that movie just about finished me off.  So freaking loud even with my fingers jammed into my ears.  But Frank, yeah Frank was the best part, along with Harrison Ford's craggy face.  He looked worse than us sunbeaten DW paddlers!
