I felt as if I was on drugs I was so stoked

Wow is all I can say!! 

I was finally able to ride this board, on this last Cali swell. Went to a local Newport spot where Mick Fanning was spotted. 4’-6’ beach break barrels on tap.

First wave – the board stuck, flew and released when I wanted it to. Now my confidence peaked, I felt as if I was on drugs I was so stoked. This board is beyond magic. After our session a buddy says to me “man, that’s the best I’ve ever seen you surf, you were so confident, charging and ripping”. Having confidence is such a huge part of surfing – like 50/50 confidence and ability. ???????? thx proctor!!

That’s a review btw – I think every surfer should own this board, it’s a well rounded shredding machine!!!
