Hi Todd and Charissa,
Sorry its taken me so long to get back to you with feedback on the Monsta step-up. We basically only surfed the wall down on the baja and though it was head and a half to double it is such a mushy wave it was hard to get a good feel for the board.
Last week I finally got to really give it a go on this wedge that rarely goes off but
I managed to catch it on the best day I’ve ever seen there.
Luckily I had a pretty good idea that it was going to be mackin so I brought the step-up and my god what an amazing session.
The drop is super gnarly and
the board handled it like a dream.
It literally felt like I was on a 6″7 or 6″8 for paddle ability but then when a turn section would materialize it would just blast off the lip and felt more like the 6″3 it is but with so much control.
I can literally go full throttle where as before if I pushed my board that hard I’d lose it.
The session blew my mind and
I just sat on the beach after full of froth.
Thanks once again for making me an unreal board. I’m so happy with it. I tell all my friends about you guys and I’d expect a few more orders coming from up here on Van isle. Have a good weekend talk to you later!
