There will be 4 more of these in SoCal in a month or so
with a recent order placed.
I'm sure a few erBBers will have some reports to offer up
shortly after that.

Well as the owner 3 coils I feel that I have a pretty good handle on how they perform.First of all Mike is a great shaper and he really prides himself in what he does and he is really into giving his customer the best board.Second is that the coil tech absolutely has made a difference not just for me but for friends that have coils themselves.The boards just seem to stay under your feet damn good.Third thing is that I never worry about pulling into some barrel and thinking if I don't make will my board come up in 2 pieces.They aren't indestructable but they hold up like no other board I have ever had.

I have had 2 sunovas,2 firewires and regular epoxies and they can't hold a candle to what a CUSTOM HAND SHAPED COIL has done for my fun time.

I currently have a widerboard on order right now and it should be done soon.I can't wait!So if you want a board that makes you have more fun then in my opinion you can't go wrong with getting a coil!

I would post pics but I am computer handicapped.If somebody could post them for me I can email them to you.

WHy would Coil want to work with someone who has a Firewire model?

They dont need a collaboration when they have it figured out already.

Coil can customize their shapes more readily.

Maybe we'll get a DK/Coil mash-up...or a Zamora/Coil or Stamps/Coil, or Lovelace/Coil, or Campbell Bros/Coil, or...

Seems to me the people that have mastered this build, that
being the Brasingtons and Mike Daniel, have it pretty wired
and are doing just great as it is. Who knows though...

A little of what I know from speaking with Mike Daniel...

Coil used to collaborate with a few labels: some preliminary stuff with ...lost, some boards with Nielson and Cannibal (where do you think Cannibal got the "inspiration" for their Core-vac boards?), and, most publicly, WRV.

They are now doing their own thing (everything in-house) under their own label, and content doing so. I can't say whether or not they might reconsider that in the future, though. Guess you never know.

Oh yeah, I do know that the Coil guys love side-by-side testing with Firewires; the results are pretty much always in their favor (I can attest; while I really liked my past Firewires, I like my Coils more).

That little stubby one looks super fun. Is that worked off of one of their models or a total custom you and Mike came up with?

The stubby one is referred to as an "M-80", one of MD's designs. I'll cut-and-paste the description of it from the swaylocks thread if/when I get a chance.

I have one on order right now. I'm 6'0" 180-190 and MD recommended a 5'8"

I'm riding a friend's 6'8" x 20 3/4 x 2 7/8 widerboard with
an H2 quad setup in it.

even though this is a bit longer and narrower than my usual
boards, it was killing it this morning in the mushy takeoff
to inside racetrack on the falling tide at the local beachies.
I was really please with how well the board paddled and picked
up waves.

I got to load it up on a nice frontside peak and had the
same experience I had the first time I got my feet over
griffin's 5-fin...full on acceleration, leaving me behind.
really responsive...I set up a couple really nice lippers
front side and had a few backside waves with successive
loaded bottom turns to top turns (indian name: watches his own spray).

I'm hoping to get one at this volume, just 4" shorter and
a hair wider.

short summary: rugged board, lively ride.

The short board to the left is the m-80.M is for Mike and 80 is for the 80's template that Mike used for the template.After seeing all the short wider boards from different shapers I called Mike and asked him to shape me something similar but with his own input and what I got was another great board.The only thing is you have to dial in the fins since the rail line is so short.I use the fam1 future fins and it works.
I just pickedup new board from Mike this morning and I will have Oceanslide post them for me if he doesn't mind.Its like his widerboard but slightly different.It looks fuchn good!!

So it looks as though the dims on my round-tail Widerboard will be
something like 6'4" x 20 3/8" x 2 5/8ish. Exact
width/thickness will depend to some extent on the overall
volume when it's cut. 5-fin convertible setup. Cannot wait to get my paws on that
thing.
Not sure what the others that ordered at the same time
are going with, but there should be some good porn to share
when that package arrives.
