I can't help but think that McCoy's failure to be embraced by the mainstream is as much to do with his hamfisted marketing and insistence on 6'6s and above for intermediates than any fault of the boards. I mean, this is a 5'4 singley in micro Noosa waves https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6bNeyylEF_c. Film that properly with an iconic stylist on board rather than an unknown (who actually does fine), call it something more appealing than Potbelly and you'd have people queuing out the door for one

Ok. I've been polite.

Do you live in Sydney? Let's see if you can back your aggressive behaviour up.

I don't care that you are in love with McCoy surfboards, but if someone spoke to me like that in the street or a pub I'd be swinging.
Exactly.

What good is the internet if you can't be a faceless warrior and hide behind a keyboard and throw insults without real world repercussions?

GM has/had a siege mentality, is a conspiracy theorist and a great story teller.

check out Cheyne Horan on Insta, you can see some of the Horan/Rodgers colab boards with Horan's new upright fins. You can order a nugget like board with a quad set up

Thanks for the link gstq. I'd have the mal out in those ankle snappers. I've seen a few sweet potatoes perform very similarly in that type of wave.

That board was over 3" thick.

Oh there's any number of boards that would be doing just as well. Better, maybe. I think that if you're interested in trying one, ignore the extremes of both ends of the argument, do a little research into what each model is intended to do (the potbelly, for example, is designed to be ridden with an even stance and doesn't demand a back footed approach like the lazor zap, say, while his splinter model is supposedly more of a traditional shape) and personally I would avoid going too big. A 6'3 nugget has easily enough float for a 90kg person, the potbelly looks like it carries even more volume. You might like one, you might not. At the end of the day, it's only a surfboard

You're digging up skeletons from the McCoy wars. There's a book in there somewhere, one suitable only for diehard McCoy tragics. They'll sense this thread like a zombie senses warm human blood.
