That’s very good value. It won’t be much like the Search to paddle, and will be less stable, but in the long term would be more rewarding for fitness and distance paddling (and maybe the odd race too).

In honor of my latest birthday ending in “0”, I’ve decided that I should not rule our surfing!  I don’t live on a coast (yet), so it will be a drawn out learning process, and on very small waves.  So, now I need a more versatile board.  Can’t wait!

Thank you, Quick!  As I recall from our emails, we’re very close in age.  Still going!

Hi “C”. Yes, I think we’re close, although if I remember correctly I may have reached my “zeros”  a bit before you (ha! ha!). And yes, still going indeed. In fact, still going strong, I’d say!!!

I ordered an 11’ Cruise Control today—-I’m excited!  Jimmy was a breeze to work with, and very helpful.  Though I’m not a huge fan of white, I went with it just to minimize heat on road trips.
I had wavered between this board and the Hanalei 10’8, but he leaned toward the CC. Maybe the next board??

I know you don’t want to ship stuff, but I could use an xtuff (not xtuff-s) shaft.  Keep me posted on the blow out!
