I understand the mini driver and this board are quite similar. The mini drivers rails are not as foiled and it probably has more overall rocker. The QK rocker is moderate to low throughout(much more than your standard Hybrid or fatty) with an acceleration in the tail. The nose also has a good flip.
Feels very nice under the arm and under foot. Will report back when I get it in some more serious waves.

How does it compare to your double blunt? I have a dbl blunt that I like but recently picked up a short round. i like the deep single to double and now i am eyeing a QK. BTW your board looks a beautiful.

For all the people wondering if the Puddle Jumper is more of a quiver killer, I would say that it is. I picked up a 5'4 a few weeks ago (slim dimensions) and I've ridden it in tons of different conditions. Most notably, I have surfed it in pumping head high beach break with some very hollow sections. It's not ideal in those waves, but it works pretty well. I can see how some people would prefer it in those conditions over a normal shortboard, though next time I will opt for my HPSB.

Long story short, the PJ is very capable in bigger, more powerful surf.

So, quiver killer is more of a standard shortboard for waves with some push.

Short Round looks the best to me out of the current lineup


My entire existence is a failed gotcha

It's much more pulled in at both ends and more foiled in the rails than the DB. There is also more rocker overall. The wave range is similar I think but I would choose the QK every time. It feels like a lot less board and is easier to get on the rail. It's basically a mini step up from the Short Round, so if you like that one you will probably gel with this one.
I don't think I would pull this out in waves under shoulder high.

Probably not as pulled in as those but somewhere in-between the real fatties and the decent wave boards.
Hey, its not for everyone in quality surf but I am the first to understand that I'm not on the same level as KS et al. I just want to have fun and surf the best I can. This board seems to help me do both in the mid range.

This bloke tends to agree on the capability and range of the QK

Pretty much have 3 HPSBs that are very similar. Looking to get something a bit different with a round tail. Already have a groveller - knee to chest and fat is covered. Clean steep conditions to 1.5x overhead are covered. Can anybody comment who mostly rides HP boards? Felt one up in CW and the nose felt pretty massive. Can you surf these pretty aggressively? Want something for tight little barrels but if a nice wall presents itself I want to be able to blow the fins, try airs, laybacks etc and not be hindered by all of that nose. Is it a decently HP board? Cheers!

So basically, same board with a (to my eyes) uglier logo for an extra $150-200.

What a deal.

Biolos is pretty dead on about NY surf scene though.
