Lol, crossbreed got me keen too haha. I do have a 9'2" I don't use and now I've bought my wife :-D-: a minimal I could probably sell my rehab 7'er and just might scrape up enough. Though I'm guessing one of his middies with colour etc wouldn't be cheap. Ah well, if I'm short I'll grab a McNeill off boardcave lol

I really don't like the idea of having to have my feet planted in the same spot. I'd get bored. I like having to crosstep/shuffle around my 7'7 single.

I'll still keep an eye out for a good deal. But I'll be more inclined to spend my dollars on a 6'6ish egg for my trip to PNG in December.

Now that I've converted the waterskate, I doubt I'll bother with another bonzer.
I was toying with the idea of taking the 7'7 and two shorties with me, or taking the 6'8 waterskate and 3 shorties.
Just found a great post in the travel section about Nusa island. Really helped out with my quiver decision for that trip.

Looks like the 7'7 will stay at home and I'll take more shorties.

I like the look of the crossbreed as well..... and his bonzers look sweet as. That's a two board quiver covering all bases

I remember stumbling across Jye's website shortly after I picked up my 6'0 from Patto just after my daughter was born.
They look like top quality pieces of equipment.

I'm pretty sure the blue 6'6 crossbreed that Jye rides in the video would fit nicely in my quiver as my everyday board.

I hear what you're saying re moving around on a board. I like boards like that as well. One reason I like fish and mids, can move forward and trim then step back and turn.

Suppose you might call this a mid length, just picked it up. 7'4"x 21"x 3", got for surfing medium size local reefs and larger beachies that are hard to paddle into, getting old and don't have the power in the arms these days :)

Nice shape, you'll feel pretty confident on that beast that's for sure.

I would call that board
