Nice. What dims? Can’t read them in the photo.
So it's 6'8" by 20 3/4 by 2 5/8. Designed for the bigger days where I want to get in slightly earlier and get moving fast.

I reckon I'm bigger, heavier and older than you (and probably not as good a surfer).

Also worked out quite sometime ago that I surf what works for me, and not what is popular, cool or works for others.

Wasn't sure whether I should post these pics due to the bitterness and envy they would cause.

Josh Dowling. PU/PE 5'7" x 18 3/4" x 2.4" 29 litres asymmetrical. (He does the odd PU/PE for people if they want something interesting made) Josh did a raised deck in the tail - like an arch bar. So the tail rail is like thin like a HPSB but with more foam under your back foot. Feels great and the board comes off the bottom like a rocket. Still feeling it out and fooling around with fins. Will post update later after more waves.

Nice mate, great to see josh still shaping, albeit infrequently. You just know it’s going to be fast, it’s red!

He's definitely shaping infrequently. It took about two months to get this one out of him. Shaping, glassing, colour work is all top notch though.

Now you're a Facebook video star, pinhead. Gotta watch social media oversharing ...
I did spy JD lurking with his phone, I didn't realise my privacy had been violated.

Wrote a rambling load of waffle ‘review’ after a few reds last night, and deleted it.

In summary, a very good board that surfs smaller than the dimensions.

You surfing it as a quad or thruster?

Tried both, I’m 60/40 in favour of thruster, some Kinetic Joel Parkinson fins I found for $25 at a pawn shop seem to do the trick.

Indeed. What may seem like a rambling load of waffle to you may seem like a nonsensical rant to others.
