Shiva model.
Performance hybrid type I guess.
FCUK load of foam in the mid section, but very tapered out nose/tail, and a soft bevel out to the rail, ergo way thinner rails, tail, than most bigger/older guy boards than I’ve seen.

Looks great, Toots. I'd go one of those if it was a couple of inches longer. Kind of looking for something like that.

Will it be an all rounder for you toots or reserved for different conditions?

Just watched the spiel from the man himself. Looks like a winner mate. Ride report please.
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 dims channels?
Got one of those a little while back. Bought it as a step up - 6'4". Have only ridden it 3 times but I'm not sure about it, feels a little weird, super stiff, rides like it's a 6"8". Looking at it i anticipated it would be a consistent feeling straightforward step up from the board i have, both have similar outlines, rocker, concave and all that shit. It rides way different.

Na, not yet.
it's designed as a travel board, so I'm told. Glass job feels right, bit heavier.

Got the 6'6". Been out of the water for 4 months with my shoulder, was looking for something predictable with volume to ease back into it.

Spoke to a guy who took his to solid Indo and said he didn't ride any other board the entire time. For powerful waves he gave it a double thumbs up.

Duck, spent a lot of time riding this over the weekend. I see what you mean. Saturday was pretty windy onshore, slightly overhead waves breaking randomly whereas Sunday was a little more consistent, still strong winds but more side/offshore but head high. A couple of years ago, I think this would have been too much board but still building up strength and fitness it was about right. The additional weight of the glass was helpful in the wind, although the volume was a bit of a pain when caught inside.

If I had to compare it to previous shortboards, it's way smoother and less frenetic but harder to gain instant acceleration I think turns would be less radical. I think the consistent rail line, rounded pin and smaller concaves probably all contribute to this. I reckon if you blow a wave on this board, it would be all user error and rarely the board.

I reckon a few on here would hate this board as a daily driver but not a bad option as a bigger guy shortboard or for me building back up. I'm thinking that once I'm at full fitness it will probably go into the rack for winter or better waves.

Picked this up off gumtree.

Lost - short round model - lib-tech.
6’2 x 21 x 2.63 @ 38 litres.

Secondhand, used twice, and in mint condition. Half the price at $550 w’out fins (retails new at $1099 AUD)

Bought a new set of FCS2 performer carbon XL size to go with it at $159.

Got it for beach breaks, waist high to a foot or two overhead.

Only managed a quick go out just now at Stanwell Park. The second I arrived the south wind kicked in at full speed and ruined the conditions, so too early to feel it out yet.

Here’s the blurb on it

Will do. I’m equally interested in the flex pattern compared to standard polyurethane boards.
