I didn't want to say any names but since.. i felt unsure when the shaper recommended me something without knowing my physical & skill info, waves I'll be surfing in and my current board sizes but I guess your reply above explains to me now how you came up with the recommendation of 7'10 right off, too bad there was a misunderstanding but I'd love to order 1 in near future (i'd like to try out the 1 I just sent the payment for 7'0) if you'll still accept

Nice! That one looks great. Let us know how it goes for you. What fin is that you're running? I really want to get another one just as bladey as my 8' but in a 6'10-7'0. I have a 7'4 that's a little thicker foil for my taste that I may part with soon if anyone is interested.

Ryan gave me the fin, its true ames volan flex fin...took it out this morning...its pretty smooth, but I wasn't able to find the sweet spot yet, I think I was surfing it too much from the middle, couldn't really turn it like I wanted to, Ryan had said to surf it from the back so I guess I have to learn to get farther back...definitely fun ride though!

I've got a 7'11 vbowls and have been running this fin in it: (9inch) http://www.alkalifins.com/fin-range/lovelace-signature-fin.html
I find running it quite forward enables me to surf the board from the middle much easier. Still has all that speed and drive, but is loose at the lip and bottom turn. I think Ryan is back in oz through September - i would love to get a shorter vbowls - maybe in 6'10 range - but i'm not sure if he does them that size or whether it would kill the feel?

I've got a 7'6 vbowls. I'm 200 pounds and 6'0...

Awesome board. Does everything. Rides waves where I would ride a log before, also rides bigger stuff, rides hollow stuff, etc...

Paddles well... It's my first choice to go out independent of the conditions... It's just fun and confortable.

Riding single fins does need a bit more technique especially in hollow conditions.

I'm running it with a 9'0 mikey de temple md3.

I have an Andreini bullet. It's a 5'9" and can be fun to surf. I think the shorter length takes away a lot of glide, but it still goes goes really fast when trimming on the right part of the wave.

Would anyone who has a vBowls in the 7'6" - 8'2" range mind taking a couple measurements for me? Im interested in: Nose and tail width (12" up), and how many inches behind center the wide point is. Thanks!

I love you.
come by my shop sometime. You're welcome to hang out and watch me shape, tell me what I'm doing wrong after 9 years and over 2,500 hand shaped boards, then talk about me all you want. I'm not trying to make a veiled threat, its and honest invitation with good intentions
