Re: Midlengths

Agree - it is the bottom and the rails. I rode them for about 18 months back in 2009-2010. I had a 5'8 nugget that was a great board for the beach i surf at because it is a consistent barrelling wave. That board seemed to just find the right line and slot in. I loved the volume (then) after spending...

Re: Gary McNeill

Worthwhile trying as a twinnie? Would need some fins- consensus to forgo keel type and go for a more upright fin? Batoes any tips on who to buy from? <: :D I think those salty merchant electric keels would be pretty sweet - half MR half Rasta keel. Sounds like twin fin breeding heaven. Or any of th...

Re: Gary McNeill

Actually, if i recall correctly, i tried to buy some salty merchant keel fins from some guy and he never sent them...but in the end it all worked out. That said, every time i go to buy keel fins now, i hit the ground in the foetal position.
