I have an EPS GX and Itís super light and pretty strong.

Buddy of mine ordered an EPS GX also and itís his favorite board of all time. Heís hooked with Tim as a shaper because of it.

Ordering a longboard with Tim now, anyone have one or had one that they could comment on, model, prime conditions for it, things you would change if ordering again...

I love 'em. I first got a GX with light glassing and a carbon strip. Super light, lively, magic. I also got a WTF and went 4+4 deck, 6 bottom. It's still super light but more durable.

When I test rode rode Cyrus Sutton's banjo it was EPS and I dug it so I figured why not. I like EPS for any small wave design.

These two are 4+4 x 6oz as well. Definitely light but not too light.

Dang. I wish you'd been able to feel up the round pin. Definitely one of the best feeling/looking boards I've ever owned.

I have a couple Odyssey's and a Bridge. They have been great boards. The Odyssey is really a good all around LB. My friend has a Dorado and loves it.

Don't feel like you have to choose one of his "models". I told him what I was looking for and he cooked up a perfect longboard that is modern and easy to surf. Tell him what you want out of it and he'll dial you in. jam_on

By the way, beautiful boards Aruka.

Concur.
Tim's longboard skills are topnotch, hes just not quite hipster approved
My personal favorite is bridge model with the wide point back behind center, on the outline
Mucho Savy....he understands & can make anything

Aruka, what is that you have on the ground under your boards? I'm moving into a new house and have been looking for something to put under my boards when I make a vertical rack.

It's Owens Corning Foamular XPS insulation foam board. Comes in 4 x 8 sheets of varying thickness, I think I used 1". I had a couple sheets leftover from when I built my shop. It does the trick and the price was right but there's surely a better option for long term durability since it doesn't really rebound from the nose dents. I was thinking some of those one inch thick gym mat squares that lock together would be pretty trick. Honestly though I just kinda threw my rack together out of stuff I had lying around and I'm cool with it other than I'm running out of space already.
