Should be a great surfer. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished board in all it's glory.

anon, when are you going to make a foil board?  You shred on your little potato chip boards, I'll bet you would do great on a foil, and DoHo seems like it would be a great place to foil.

I have not had the opportunity to foil yet but I will probably give it a try sometime in the future.  Doho would be a good place to foil on less crowded days when the tide is high and the waves are just rolling in and not breaking.

I agree man. Also, I'm stunned that you're riding these things so narrow. Crazy man.

Ok........ that is actually a pretty reasonable groveler surf board for me. Blow it up to 7-8 x 29 x 4 and I'd be super stoked for SUP. Nice.

It should be ready any day now.  Can't wait to get it out there.  I am a little over 160lb (73kg).

160 pounds and you're riding only 72 liters - whoa!

I still think you should host a demo day lol. The next time you are thinning your quiver we should all hit a beach near you and see who can paddle these things.

Can't wait to see this one.

I actually plan to use it a for prone surfing as well, as a long board substitute.    I've been prone surfing my 7-0 x 24 Greedy Beaver SUP quite a bit and like it better than my other long boards and mini mals in the slow Doho waves.

We'll see how it goes :-)   I think that with the wider tail it should only be a little less stable than my current daily driver (7-0 x 24 x 75L).

Looks sweet!
I have to try your boards next fall at DoHo.
Let us know how it works?
