  • So Mark E let me take a few waves on his creation today.....
    After one wave to adjust from the longboard I was riding, I caught a clean, lined up left and it was a sweet thing. It took off really fast and I found myself running a little too far out ahead of the pocket, carved a little turn to scrub off some speed,  flipped it back into trim and went to the nose as a nice section set up. That's when the board did what it was designed for, locked in while I stood there on the nose {not hanging any toes, but right on the nose}  flying along loving life. Farking awesome. It felt like a somewhat lighter version of a Cooperfish. Not only is it a thing of beauty, it feels GREAT to ride.
    The two really good waves I got on that board made my session and my day.

  • Thanks for the report Looseness. I am glad you liked it. I surfed it for 4 hours yesterday and by the end of the session I was getting it wired.  A nice flat platform to learn to cross step on. Now I have to get better at  setting up for a walk to the nose. A lot of times I found my self moving forward before the board was locked in and then losing control and sort of slipping off the back of the wave. There was this one wave though that she just locked into and I walked forward and got that feeling of being up on the nose with it  lifting rather than sinking. Great feeling! I want more.
