  • word is Dane had a Roberts WD shaped for him, loved it and had CI replicate it.  I would go for the WD as i prefer to not support Burton/CI but thats just personal opinion. 

    Newyorkc if you are thinking of ordering a WD pm me

  • the white diamond is a diamond tail. dumster is a squash/square.. you can get a dump truck too which is a wd with a squash.. there's a ton of info on other forums about the two boards also.. seacow all shapers seem to replicate others shapes and ideas and put maybe their little spin on it.. it pretty normal from what i've seen

  • i prefer to not support CI as well, though I do hear that WDs are taking forever for a custom. Im pretty sure I found a store in CA that has WDs in stock and will ship them. Just gotta find one in my dims.

    Roberts suggested: 5'6 x 19 3/8 x 2 3/8. seems really short, but i hear these boards pack a ton of foam.

  • I bought the DD a few weeks ago and absolutely love it in the small stuff.  I surfed it in a punchy beach break and wished I had my regular board, but in knee to chest+ mush it works really good.
    I'm 5'10 165lbs and ride a 5'7x19.?x2 3/8.  The board has plenty of float and paddles well.

  • and seacliff dont go by Unsound, the temptation to purchase the DD will overwhelm you, I think Dave said they got 12 new ones in last week.

  • Stopped by unsOund - pulled the trigger.  ;D









    Much thanks to young John for the advice on the board (and recommending the flat tailpad - I'll let you know how it works out for me, John!) and Vic for all the assistance, and of course to Dave Juan, who continues to demonstrate why unsOund is the go-to shop in the area!

    There's a nice selection still there, a 5'6 or two, another 5'7, a couple of 5'8's and a few larger....get there and snap yours up!

     ;D ;D ;D

    I most definitely will!

    At 5'7, it's def as small as I've ever gone - but although short, it's def got plenty of volume and not a ton of rocker - so I'm actually expecting it to paddle well and be more than fine for me.

    To me, it's more than time to break out of the RNF fish rut I've been in - I've spent nearly every shortboardable session in the past several months on one of the 6'0" round nose fishes in my quiver - and this looks like just the thing to snap me out of it.

    Also...I've got my eye on the prize: There's very little chance I could actually win Looseness's Old Guy/Girl Air Challenge, but if I was ever to do it, it would be on this board, and not on a big ol' fat fish.  ;D
