Hands up who is riding a sub 6ft Lis looking quad fish or twin. F$ck me they are everywhere.

I was chatting to a surfing acquaintance who I've know for 10 years, he's always ridden HPSB. He's now loving his Rarb Machado Seaside. He wouldn't have been seen dead on one 18 months ago.

Please explain this phenomenon
Easier to ride in most every day surf.

Phenomenon already peaked though.

Many have also morphed hugely from the specialised Lis type fish, to make what can be a handful to a more user friendly design.
More curves, more rocker. Modern bottom contours. Looser fin setups.

Yes, but why is it acceptable now. A few years back you'd cop a sneer from riding an MR Twin! Are surfers sheep!! Influenced by peer pressure!!!!Slaves to fashion!!!!!Complete morons!!!!!!

The board I snapped was 5'11" x 18' 3/4 x 2' 5/16

26 cl

It was a Stacy Reaper model and felt like a weapon! Second hand.

Are these dims fairly standard? Cos I want something similar, any hot tips or if one of you has a decent board around that, hit me up.

I'm always too broke to get customs. One day.

Makes it easy to score good boards that you wanted to try. Pity is you have to keep them if they don't work for you.

Why?
Buy cheap 2ndhand then sell for the same price or a tiny bit less.

So true. See many really good boards at some of the ‘garage’ board shops around. Some sit for a long while.

Interestingly various Slater designs seem to pop up a bit.
