Did you remove the pad before you surfed it?
It's a mile too far forward.

I know you said you would, but I don't know if you did.

Yeah, took it off first thing.

I'm not a fan of pads at all. Prefer the full wax on boards.

….this was pushing off the wall not diving in.

...running out of breath underwater hasn’t been an issue. Not too bad for a 62 y/o who surfs irregularly.

Why a speed egg over this? Serious question.

I’ve felt a few up at Rhino, they are nice, no doubt.

This is a semi-gun shape and the reality is I don't ride the waves it's designed for.

Have a Mini Merk in the board rack (thanks Loof) that I like and my beloved channel bottom (best ever board status) that Cranky felt up. But I like the look of a speed egg in maybe a 6'8" or 7'0" size or maybe an Octafish in the 6'4" range.

I like those dims.
that board would get plenty of go outs here.

I'd keep that Octafish around your height or an inch over.
6'4" is too big unless you are a giant.

Those speed eggs feel amazing I think they have a few in your dims in the racks in shop there.
