Was the CI board that won, the only board with a stiffer type installed stringer ( spine tek) ?

That also what Mick is more accustomed to, kind of a closer feel to a pu?

What were the rules for the boards? Epoxy and ..?

Although it would be great to see bobby surf in one of these, I don't think he's eloquent enough to describe what he likes in one board vs. another.

Maybe that's just my perception of him and he'd do a great job. I don't know.

What would be interesting is having a shaper be the tester. Who's a shaper that is also an incredible surfer?

Off the top of my head: Shea Lopez, Gorkin, Akila, Robo, Nathan Fletcher... damn, Nathan would be sick!

I liked Jordy's comical insight on SITD.

Does he seem like the kind of guy who listens?

Nathan Fletcher shapes? I thought he rode Stretch boards?

Yeah he rides for Stretch but shapes too. Supposedly made the early drafts of the Buzz series models, somebody on here posted a bunch of those and Nathan called them Boogie Snorkels or something weird.

They should talk to the major shapers and see which of their riders have teh most articulate feedback. That should add to the list.

The person I'd most like to see is Slater.

Slater would be the ultimate get, but I fear it would never happen.

Josh Kerr would be great.

bobby and Kerr would be awesome.

Taj Burrow as well

I'm trying to think of someone who both rips and would give really good feedback rather than "its good" or "it bogs"


Rumour is that Slater has a full-size tattoo of himself over his entire body
