I really liked how the board paddled and took off.


I bought a 6′ 10″ x 21″ x 3″ Big Chief back in April.  I was not able to get it out for a while due to a new baby and flat surf.  I finally got it out in some pretty small stuff a few weeks ago.  Although I was pretty out of paddling shape (my wife having 2 little girls in three years has slowed me down),

I really liked how the board paddled and took off.  I  am super happy with it!  It makes it even better knowing how much pride you take in your work.

Thank You
