No. I tried a few years ago after a realsurf discussion but I don't have issues with lack of traction (the opposite, as the picture attests). Besides now that I'm using fu it would probably eat a cake each time.

Ultra heavy feet tootr. I used to destroy a couple of coolites per summer as a kid. I've just been on Josh's boards so long I forgot how bad my feet are. Even so I remember peeling the grip off a favourite and there was a depression outline of the pad imprinted into the tail.

I wish I could surf smooth but I tend to surf short, fast waves so I impose my turns. If I surfed Lennox or some long smooth point maybe I would have developed differently. Somewhere I could ride the board and its attributes instead of forcing it.

Like I said I might lay them up with reinforcement in future.

You can maybe get a sense of it here:

Where the "wing" of the pad is is crushed in by the thickness of the pad, so ~3mm. And all the glass is cracked. I think I'm going to layup 2oz innegra/2oz glass patches on newies from now on. Or get used to buying several new boards a year.
The advantage of those carbon stripes is you can see the deck depressions a lot easier
I don’t reckon the carbon tail patches do much. Most seem to cover the rail and don’t go far enough over the deck to protect it.

I regularly see quite a few guys on these and similar boards. Super fast waves, waist to overhead.

Happy with that board?

Short answer , yes.

It's been a journey with many ups and downs.
