Saw pics of this thing a little while ago, but apparently
Mattison just got it in the water for the first time a
couple days ago. Today I was at the beach with the groms
and looked up to see him flying all over the place on little
inside waves on this new stub-groveler.
5'6" x 21 3/4" x 2 5/8", stringerless eps/epoxy.
Mind you, there were head-high set waves out the back,
which is where you'll usually find him, but he was picking
off these small waves on the inside and FLYING around on
them and doing full wrap-around cutbacks with no loss of
speed into even smaller inside sections...repeat.
Board was WORKING!
Long story short, I'm ordering one. Although I've had most of the super groveller boards out there,
this is a risk-free board for me, since I pretty much know
how it's going to perform based on past boards
that I've loved! It's a tweaked version of an all-time
favorite, built for serious grovelling.
Seeing it in action sold it for me, then talking to Sean
later...he was amping on it! Pretty easy to tell when
he reeeeally loves a new board...this was one of 'those'.
Going 5'8" x 22 1/4" x 2 3/4" on mine. Can't wait!!
