Well boys I want to thank all of you for the feedback. I got a shadow 2 months ago and love it. I lurked on this site and you all convinced me to get the board. It is the best. Thanks for the feedback.

Except, you can't just leave it at that. How about a
review??

Hey Oceanslide,
I've only had a chance to ride my Hornet twice due 2 no waves,
but the 2 sessions I did ride it, I used the stilletto fronts and q1 rears.
These felt great. Didn't feel a loss of drive, and had a couple of pretty "wow turns". Maybe adding that center nub fin will help solve the drive issue for ya? I'm gonna throw it in mine when we get a decent swell. So most likely, end of August when I'm out by you.

Hmm, the nubster is not a bad idea. Also will try a couple
different front fins instead of the Stillettos.

This PC-5 / GX-Q combo worked excellent in my other shadow. Drivey controllable and loose...






Gonna hopefully try that setup soon!

rid, you digging so far?




Have another for you Oceanslide...a different variation of what I loaned you last year. MR 78's up front with small Takayama's as trailers. Goofy looking but oh so fun!

Well its like this....the Shadow makes me surf better...hands down and leaps and bounds better then any other board before. I have a EPS 5'10 2 and three eight thick and 20 and three eight wide. I am a primarly front footed surfer with 15 years experience. Prior to getting this board I rarely did a complete wrap around cutback. I rarely hit the lip and I rarely made tough sections. Now it is a regular experience. You know that FEELING you get when something feels smooth with good style? I get it all the time on this board from 2 to 8 foot faces. I just surfed it at a Mainland pointbreak for a week straight and really got to feel the board out. Never blew a drop and felt like I was on a magic carpet. I cant say enough about the board. This along with my trusty Wayne Lynch 6'3 hybrid and Im good to go. These are some pics from my recent trip. I have this thread to THANK for this magic shred sled.

In exactly one week I'll have the chance to let mine loose down there as well.
Along with the Comet and Von Twinzer.
