Great, thanks. Nice classic graphics (although Iím not sure about the light colour deck pad).

Have you got a picture of the rocker line?

They are available now, let Jimmy or Marlon know you want one and they should be able to hook you up.

They look great....performance and stability. Bit like a Striker with more performance rocker.

Iím much more interested in the 10 x 29 longboard Destroyer he has made as a custom and aims to go into production. Itís 125 litres so a bit too small in that dept for my waves. Hoping it will lead to a bigger boys version...only time will tell.

The board you describe sounds very different from the shorter Destroyers.  Seem like a totally different model.
7'7" x 29" 100L
8' x 30" 115L
8'5" x 30.5" 130L
8'10" x 31" 145L
9'3" x 31.5" 160L
10'0 x 29 x 125L ???

How is this the same model. The plan shape even looks more elongated than the pictures at the top of this thread. How is it the 10' model is considered the same model?

Yeah, that is my thinking too.....but then when you look st the template you can see that it is a stretched out/thinned out version. You can see the similarities of shape via these pics. But I reckon he should call it Destroyer Longboard or something else. But what do I know! My guess is that he will be asked to make a bigger boys version of it in time eg 10 x 30 at 135/140 litres.i think it looks just the ticket....like a lower volume Nalu.

I suspect the 10' low volume board was made in response to the Australian Distributor in order to have a weapon for the 10' Competition scene which is HUGE over there.

Yes, exactly. And in any case if I surfed conditions a little bit better than I normally do, this is the one Iíd get. Much better to have a longer narrower board for surfing than a shorter fatter one IMO.
