Custom Built in Ventura since 1992

It’s been a while since I’ve been this connected to a board…



I think you nailed it. This one is alive. Keeping it a bit straight between the feet really gets it going quickly. It’s almost like I gain speed in tighter areas and don’t need as much room to drive it, lets me keep a higher line effortlessly. It compliments the increased tail rocker perfectly. After hitting the lip I’m going from 12:00 to about 4:00. The first few times caught me by surprise.

There’s nothing like a big hack when you know everyone saw it.

Cutbacks are really tight as well. A minor shift in weight is all it needs.

After 20 or so sessions I’m having a blast with it.

It’s been a while since I’ve been this connected to a board.

Thanks a bunch and God Bless.
