I love the new 5’11 Blackbird II (Quad) with the Parabolic Stringers!

Hi Guys,

Hope you are both doing well! Just thought I say hi and send you a few photos my friend Dan Snapped of me at Salt Creek this past December. ( I’m on a the 6’4 Ante-Up Quad)
Thanks again for the awesome boards,

I love the new 5’11 Blackbird II (Quad) with

the Parabolic Stringers!

It is hands down the most amazing board

I’ve ever ridden I can put it down.

I’ve been surfing it on everything from

sloppy 2ft days to well overhead days

and it can handle it all.

This past week I scored the biggest barrel I’ve ever been in and made it out clean 🙂 Thanks again for your skills in the shaping room~
