Asked for full gloss when I emailed the order, but it didn't come up again in conversation yesterday. I'm not too fussed either way. Happy for him to do as he sees fit. The wet rub looks great too.

Can't wait to see it finished. He's got some seriously nice boards on the racks. Clean lines. His instagram account has lots to look at

Some more pics. But early for a proper ride report yet but so far it feels pretty sweet. First go out was in overhead but average wind affected beach breaks. Soon gave up on that and hit the point. Much smaller but still fun. Got a few nice cutbacks happening. Holds a steady line and feels crisp and precise when you put in on rail.tomorrow I'm gonna hit national park for proper go at it.

Lovely rail. What's the edge like leading down towards the tail, sharp or curved?

It's low, rolled. Bit of an edge to it but Nothing too sharp. The overall rail on the board is fairly thin-blade like but not sharp edged if that makes sense.

Yeah it does, looks like it would love a driving bottom turn. Keen to hear more.

Look forward to seeing this one in the flesh Hatchnam. Got a solid case of man flu so it won't be this swell unfortunately.

Had a chance to surf it? How does it go?

It's great. Blue ribbon board for blue ribbon waves. Haven't had the chance to fully put it through its paces yet. But have had it in quality points and reefs and some very clean walled up beachies - all up to about four foot.

It's not a top to bottom board, doesn't like fat waves. Absolutely loves a clean down the line wave with some push and a bowly pocket. Feels super steady, cutbacks feel smooth as silk. The less effort, more relaxed you are, and more subtle you surf it the better it responds. It forces you to strip down any superfluous movement and really focus on the wave.

I'm looking forward to getting it out at sandon and waves of that ilk, in the five foot plus range to see what's up.
