If you want a channel bottom, you can't go past a Dale Wilson Byrning Spear.

I love to surf those in 2 ft onshore beach break.

I wouldn’t get a CI for that reason. I’d get a locally made custom, something similar, and make sure it’s good materials.

The peregrine is nice. It’s Like a blend of an Eighties thruster and modern HPS. That’s what appeals to me.

i got a good mate on a Black and white, and he loves it. best board ever he reckons.

he's a super competent surfer (and water photog) ... he's getting older and wanted to keep his wave count up and was buying these fun board shapes with wider noses.

got him on a 6'2 B&W (he's 6'1") and he loves it. out paddles his funboard with the wide point forward, lower entry rocker, but then has this tail lift that gets him spinning tight turns in the pocket. has enough overall rocker to use when the waves get bigger & good too – ie 6ft and fast

Ok. So it’s essentially the CI Peregrine w/o the channels.

The 6’2 stock dims would be bang on the money for me.

I’m kinda drawn to the Peregrine still. As I love the projection/speed of a channel bottom down the line.
Channels are for clean, down the line waves. At least thats where they sing the loudest.

Go the b&w and you'll get more out of it.

Yep. I know you’re right. Without a doubt.

But those overhead groundswell days, walled up and grinding hard down the line on the inside bowl. That daggy looking 80’s thruster of mine with the belly channels lights up like a fkn torch in those conditions. It feels unstoppable.

I’ll be interested to hear how your mates board holds up. Performance, I’m sure it’s the tits. But longevity, wear and tear. Has he had it long?

he just got back from some proper indo juice, late season swell.

it's fine.

just don't get one off the rack. order it, even make some changes to suit you even more and get it delivered from CI's sydney factory. get the s cloth if you're worried about breaking/ denting it. I can't praise those guys enough. they're fast and reliable,

I believe CI here use surfblanks and rhino laminating ?

Correct me if needed.

But if that’s the case then I’ve got no qualms about quality.

That twinny I got about a year ago was using the above and had s-cloth. Light enough board and pretty damn tough for a PU.

I have seen a few of them lined up just after glassing at force 9 in cronulla too. That was a few years ago though

I hear they use three glassing options here ... In house, Glass Lab and Rhino Glass.

I have seen CI boards with labels from the last two glassers. Mine doesn't have a label so I assume it was done in house.

You pay the same for a custom as you do for an off the rack. Three layers of S-cloth set me back an extra $100 last year.

With almost 65kg of raw power, 3 layers is a necessity

from memory i got my last two 710 (no fins) ... i don't think they charged me for the s-cloth either time. the first one cost me 8-hunge, but i'm not sure if i got fins or why it was dearer. it was a few years ago now.
