Talk about Johnny on the spot.
He had 15 people call after I picked it up.
Had to get some fins for it, so all up $280. Best bargain I've found for ages.

Hoping the waves pick up this week.
Was saving for a new fish. Might save for a new log now.

12 boards in the quiver. One for each calendar month. Sounds about right doesn't it?

Had a couple of sessions over the last few days.

Had a few waist high rights at the northern end of Maroubra which has been the best session on it so far. Board paddles really well which isn't surprising due to the flat rocker. Nice and stable (21" wide). No issues with digging the nose which is surprising as there's almost no nose lift.
Its nice and fast down the line which came in handy and feels really smooth and positive on bottom turns.

I think it may be due to the completely flat bottom, but when the waves slows down. Normally I can give my board a few up and down monkey pumps to help squirt a bit of water through the concave bottom. Not so on this board.
I feel like I'm on a keeper here.
