First go out was waist high mush but still got a couple of backhand snaps and a close out reo in. Looking forward to seeing how it goes in decent surf

Hocked the McCoy off to pay for it. Liked the McCoy’s but I’m 15 kg down, too much of a boat now. Reckon they’re a bit dead in smaller waves too, needs to be four foot before it comes to life.

I would just to say hurray for modern surfboard making, it has somehow seen me into the best quivers of my life.

See below current cream of the crop for 2-5' surf (iggy scale; waist high to double overhead).

From right to left:

5'11" Webber round pin deep concave thruster, G3 template phil way hand-foiled glass fins

5'11" Bushrat round carbon flextail deep concave, five box 4Way setup (better four I think)

5'10" MC round pin superconcave super Metro prototype, C-Drive small thruster setup

5'9" MC roundtail superconcave K-etro prototype (x-Kelly), C-Drive smalls

6'3" AB six channel concave pintail, usually with AB flat inside edge fin set

what have you got. I love the usual suspects but let's see some others too.

Looks like he’s going more for a hybrid gandhi, chimp, yogi pose to me.

He’s pretending to be the pistil of a flower. Very good impersonation.

RIP to the Will Webber after snapping it in half yesterday on a dredging closeout barrel.

Splurged on this today. Opted for something geared a little more towards good/bigger waves.

Reckon so. Should be a good voodoo board, or in anything with some punch to it. took it out later this arvo for a quick paddle. Only waist to shoulder high but enough to feel it’s like a fine blade. Should go sick

Yep, like the look of that. Give us a full report when you get it in some juice. I’m looking for something similar for reefs down here.
