my Big Chief in Santa Catalina, one of Panama’s most renowned breaks

Dear Charissa,

I am attaching a couple of pictures of me surfing my Big Chief in Santa Catalina, one of Panama´s most renowned breaks.

The wave offers plenty of punch, and it suits the board really well. This is just the second time I ride this board, we haven´t had much luck with swells this year, and I still have to get it a bit more wired, but I can already tell you that the ride with this board felt like the right balance between maneuverability and control.

I was able to place it all over the face of the wave,

even got a little barrel (second photo I was just coming out)with a lot of ease.

The construction is great,

I am pretty rough on boards and  this one

took my 240 pounds of body weight right in the

middle of the deck in a couple of wipeouts

without a single pressure ding.

Again, my congratulations for a great product and great service.

Talk to you soon,

Luis E Rodriguez, Panama
