I tried it with the twin fins and it was crazy

Just want to let you know the small wave board is working great. It was just what I was looking for! I tried it with the twin fins and it was crazy, it was all I could do to keep the board under me. I will try it again once I get my feet back. Only being able to surf 4 times for the past 3 years, it will take me a little to get everything back. I have not tried the other 2 but I know they will work, the last ones were perfect.

Northern Japan actually has some good waves. I have only been able to make it out a few times but it has been chest to head and glassy in the early morning. I have heard this pretty much what to look for all winter with some bigger ones every once in a while. Now I just have to get use to the cold.
The water is about 48 but the air is 30 and both are only getting colder.

I was looking at the site and the new “Ridiculous” board looks insane. I will have work on getting some funds up for that.

Thanks for everything!

First I wanted to say how much I am stoked on the boards you made for me.

The small wave groveller is like magic!

I ride it 90% of the time even up to 6-8 foot faces….
