I hope you’re well! I recently returned from the Mentawais, and I rode my custom flexible epoxy Tail Caves every day. The surf was small for most of the trip, but the board brought my backside surfing to a new level nevertheless.
I had been riding surftechs for the last 2 years, and I found this board way more lively, responsive, yet forgiving in the pocket and off the lip.
We caught overhead Rifles on the last day of the trip, and I caught the longest, fastest barrels of my life. Check out the pics!

Just wanted to let you know that the Blackbird has been working insanely well for me on the small days here in the Mentawais (chest to well-overhead). Super fun, loose, and flexy when snapping of the lip. The board works great for fin throws, layback snaps, full roundhouses, barrels, etc. This board is a dream ripper…
I only wish I would have bought your stock 6-4 Ante-up, to use for the upcoming swell, as I think it would have worked great as a step-up for me in these kind of waves. Oh well, I’m sure I’ll be happier in the long run with an more all around custom Ante-up that hopefully would go sick in Indo as well as California, France, Puerto Rico, etc! I think that board will be my next order from you later this summer…
