  • I've noticed a lot of people selling these boards in the past year. Was it just a fad where everyone went out and bought one and realized they weren't for them? I came very close to buying one about a year ago. They look like serious speed demons. Is it the epoxy that's throwing everyone off?

    sounds like my bulkley might be up your ally. One of these days we'll get you out on that thing.

  • I like mine plenty its an eps that i was going to sell until I rode it, fast responsive and superlite.  Mine is a 6'1 diamond tail, it makes me feel like a progressive surfer which is something I would very rarely say to describe my surfing, this is just my opinion of the board on crappy waves cant wait to get it on something real or of consequence.

    It took a lil while to get used to, just cuz it was so damn fast but once I got it on some nice point breaks in Peru and figured it out I fell in love with it. The only negative is that it can seem a bit fast if you're going back and forth from a thruster to the Stretch. Insane crafstmanship too.
