my general impression was good. it was all lefts today, about 4ft@9sec and clean.
i rode a 6'6" - i'm 220 lbs - and the board went well backside. good pocket (pumping)
action. duck dove well and re-surfaced damn fast. caught waves fine. i started with
one single fin w/2 trailers. can't wait to see what it does frontside. oh i also noticed
it backside bottom-turned well.

I love my 6'0" Greedy Beaver. Got it to improve my wave count, but it's surprisingly frisky.

More lively than a cruiser, but I guess that depends on what you're used to. To me it seems like Chuy is ripping rather than cruising. This video sold me on the GB.

thanks SBD. I'd agree that he's putting down some pretty good turns for that outline.

Hope it's cause of the slanted wood grain lines but to the eye it looks like uneven spacing aside from that.

But the board is always changing the angle of attack , so it should not hinder any performance

Gotta love cheap over-seas labor.

Note to Kelly: Can you have them put my fin boxes in straight?

Look at the pic paused...the grain at an angle obviously makes the toe look off.
From the straight on shot, it's not.
The vid of the the concave is also taken at an angle. Jeebus, anything to talk shite about!

I thought Chuey was ripping, but he's always a standout on all equipment. Based on
feeling one up, I'd love to try the design.
