well we finally got waves here on Maui was a terrible summer and start of fall. when i first recieved the new board it was a step up from your other epoxies that you made for me in overall look..But i did not want to ride it until we got some quality waves.
the verdict is a true spoiler,fast and loose and catches wave easily and no learning curve fits like a glove.
everyone that has seen it has been impressed showed it to Tom Parrish [legendary perfectionist]and he had that look that said plenty without comment.the proboxes are kind of interesting what would have been your set for fins in degrees? tried the 0,4 and 6 degree inserts so far and the board did not work magically till i put in the 6 degree inserts , maybe too many possibilties as we talked about..my magic to complement your board design are 6 degree black inserts with fsc fiberglass slater 8 time world champ fins fast and loose.is this board the constuction in your video where i see a board being banged against a pole?or was that something newer.took out the 7’8 ante up on a bigger day and it also rode very well ,refoiled some futures to clone the slater fins and made the board work even better.anyway mahalo for the spoilers…
