Not mine, but saw it at Usedsurf in San Clemente

Looks like they also have a Shadow and Mantis too.

Too bad there are no fins included with that first Manta. I like the artwork.

Wow, that's awfully cool of you. What do you think about sizing? I'm 165lb, 6-1 and normally like about 28-30 liters for an everyday board.

Moobs, I am 5 '10" /175 pounds and ride a Manta with those dims so I am sure it will have enough float. Do not know if that helps any just thought I would throw that out there.

Cool. Any guesses on what the volume might be?

Mooobs, You can always come down to Oceanside and ride mine first. It is a little further than San Clemente but at least you will know if it is something you want to get or not.

Didn't see that on the site, thanks! 34.5 is definitely on the high side for me volume-wise. The 5-6 at 37L would be way too much unless I custom ordered it with slimmer dims.

it's a longboard replacement so 34 liters is about right, i would have preferred 32/33L but I ride 25L to 27L as my "normal" board dims go.
