I think you'd hate it Iggs, for sure.

The fins above give it a lot more control in longer arc surfing.....but that ain't what you do on it.

I hated it, now I love it.

Maybe I'll go back to hating it.

Its quite an invigorating feeling being able to put that board wherever I want to at top speed......I thought that kind of surfing was behind me. Turns out, it's not.

I can see the appeal. But I like boards to feel like steady scalpels, not erratic missiles.

You'd love the new Maurice Cole 6'3" pintail I've got Iggs......it's a fcuking Porsche on the autobahn. Insanely sure footed handling.


I think you could go up a little easily Salts and still get the gist of it. There is a learning curve though I reckon and you have to be willing to push through.

Black Diamond is too bulbous as a tri fin. Will try as a quad.

Even a kook like me realises this is no performance board. My 7ft 2+1 has better performance.
Why do people say "grow some balls"? Balls are weak and sensitive. If you wanna be tough, grow a vagina. Those things can take a pounding.

What does bulbous mean in regards to a surfboard?

Or a 👻, which is both sure-footed yet can still do reasonably tight turns, on its own terms.
Mine is gone.

my mate came and took it and now I can't get it back :cry:

Too much foam in the wrong places. It's like riding a ballon. No bite.

If it doesn't work well as a quad, sell it while it still looks good.

Just had a look.
Looks like a hypto crypto?

Bust the fcuking door in. If one of my "mates" stole my board and wouldn't give it back I reckon I'd easily be able to justify busting up a lock. Or if I wasn't willing to, dob them in to the cops and get them to get it back.
Jesus, I don't call the cops on my oldest friend over a borrowed board. I'll get it back in due course.
