Different times I guess, let us know how u go on the Howard mini. I have fondled a few in Byron & almost pulled the trigger a couple of times.

Rode it today. Really nice on the back hand.

*To me it feels like a bonzer egg with a little more versatility. Took some fast late drops today with aplomb and raced the typical close outs until finality. Fun as fuschia. Won't surf it after winter until next March as I don't think it's s board you'd want to ride year round.

* I did say above it's like nothing I've ever ridden. I lied.

I use the standard set up - 6 1/2. Seems to work fine. Funnily enough I think the True Aimes Bonzer fin max size is 7. I think this shape board would perform well as a Bonzer.

Cool let us know. I'm particularly interested in the bottom turn with knifey rails.

Is that professionally glassed.
If so what does a glass job cost these days ?

That looks really good. McCoy are always glassed to last.

Surfed the Howard Mini in clean fast 4ft shallow bank semi closeouts. Great board for a comfortable paddle into fast waves but with the rocker to drop into them and drive off the bottom,

Best time I've had on it to date. Keeper.

What fin set up are you running on it? Love the look of them. Look like they can handle some juice also.

6 1/2 as the single. DT sides.

Was purchased for a overhead juicer waves. Does what it says on the tin. Really great knifey bottom turns as well. Can be ridden in the smaller stuff but not really the purpose.

I ride shorties, fishes etc...but this handles faster overhead stuff with aplomb. Tricky sucky backhand drops not a problem. Smooth as silk.
