Right next one.

This is an MC, 5'9" x 185/8 x 25/16 roundtail with a bit of pin, nice balanced outline and slightly forward foil with moderate single concave falling away between the fins into a tapered vee running out the back end, and quite a bit of tail rocker.

It was a prototype of a new bottom shape Maurice was playing with at the time about a year and a bit ago. When I surfed it back then I couldn't find what I wanted out of it, I'd been surfing the super lifty deep concaves and this board didn't have that free flying feeling that you get with those boards. I fought it in a couple of surfs, every now and then feeling a wild spark in vertical turns but otherwise getting frustrated. So it went back in the rack.

I dug it out feeling a bit of trepidation. Like I'm riding through my quiver but my memories of this board weren't too good and I didn't wanna ride a shit board, or at least I wanted to give it a chance. So I had a real close look at it and changed the fin set from a special custom cut glass set to something a bit bigger and plainer. Then had a closer look and used the fabulous Surfinz plugs to shift the whole cluster up about a quarter inch, just a hunch based on appearance and the way the vee was rising out of the concave.

Surfed it in chunky 3-4' reef/sand waves, lefts and rights. And what do you know, the thing came to life. I tried not to over-pressure it into stuff but it didn't matter. The board was very subtle and sorta weirdly supportive of late angled paddles into waves, it fit in really well. The fins shifted forward seemed to contact the concave a bit more and I could find lift where I couldn't remember it being before. It's still temperamental at times but it responds like lightning and a few turns felt like they just flew around with me just leaning on the mid rail a bit and the wave doing the pushing.

I'm authentically surprised by what happened during this surf and I'm definitely hanging on to this little sharky thing, gonna try just to surf it in good solid but not too big waves, preferably reefs, but a thick beachie rip bowl would be exciting on it too I think. And do some more thinking about fins with it.

Keen to hear back when you've taken the single fin out.

Nick don't think about the board too much. Just face reality and admit you don't like it. The board is shiiiit. You are hanging onto it wanting to like it, but deep down you know its shiit .
How much do you want for it. Or better still that other 5'9 MC you reviewed.?

flattish rocker with a flat deck and thin delicate little rails.

Nah Carrolls last post was in his thread. Search for the word toxic.

This fucking city
Is run by pigs
They take the rights
Away from all the kids

Understand
We're fighting a war
We can't win
They hate us
We hate them
We can't win, no way!

Walk down the street
I flip them off
They hit me across the head
With a billy club

Understand
We're fighting a war
We can't win
They hate us
We hate them
We can't win, no way!

Nothing I do,
Nothing I say
I tell them to go get fucked
They put me away

Understand
We're fighting a war
We can't win
They hate us
We hate them
We can't win, no way!

I go to court,
For my crime,
Stand in line pay bail,
I waste my time

Understand
We're fighting a war
We can't win
They hate us
We hate them
We can't win, no way!
Erase.
