Nice review, O-Slide.

That Shadow looks like a ton of fun!

I'd imagine so...Sean is at N. Jetty most days anyway.
I emailed him to ask.

That Mattison video inspires me. More-so than the W.D. Dane vids where he's rippin' it to shreds... I dont know what else to say.

Thanks for the review . I am def getting something shaped similar. Can anyone compare this board to the firewire Dominator that is the other board ive been looking at? What size shadow would you recommend for me I'm 6'2" and 168 lbs. I'm an intermediate level surfer. I'm thinking the 5'11" but I dont know about the width 21"? and thickness 2 3/8"? Any suggestions thanks

I owned a 6'2" Dominator, and the Shadow blows it away, IMO,
in all aspects. Faster, carves better, more range...
Sizing depends on what you want from the board. As a
general rule of thumb, you could size it exactly the same
as you would your favorite fish. I chose to stretch mine
out 2" in length and pulled in just a touch in width,
and feel that allowed it to still work well in crap surf,
and have more range in better waves. I can easily surf it
(and actually reach for it) in overhead, good waves.

Ask Sean...he's not too tall or heavy and it's all I've
seen him on recently. mattisonsurf@gmail.com
Dudebro probably would be a good person to ask too.

I'm finally going to ride mine tomorrow. Screwing in the fins right now. I admit I had to pull up this thread to see if the small fins went in the front or back.

Turn the board around so the fins will be in the back
