Ordered a custom 6'8 Nautilus glassed at moonlight this year. Took it on a two week boat trip through the Mentawais.

Pull the trigger! Email Jon Peck and make it happen.

Any thoughts on how they compare with the josh hall fish/Simmons????

I got it as a thruster future fin boxes for ease of travel. The rails are foiled thin. I have ridden this at beach breaks, points and double overhead reef passes.

If you like ridding fishes, you will love this board. Its trims very well and produces a ton of speed. It turns much better than a fish. Has a bit of tail rocker in it so handles hollow steep waves great.

I wanted to get in plumb purple like below, but it came in to dark.


Back side beach!

Rode a 6'6 CC shaped for himself when I was in SD for spring break. Liked it so much I got him to send it to me. Been amazing with this run of hurricane swell we've had. Paddles and catches waves easy, still getting used to turning the longer rail line a bit, but totally digging it!

They luk rad but super foiled. Surfride had a nice 6'6 that was bladed. Prly good for bigger longboad style wavez at oside harbor.

$500 seems to be the going rate for good condition used.. saw one at that Quivers shop in HB 6'4 quad flawless condition $500, but looked thick felt very similar volume, rails to 6'2 octafish they had down there. agree with havoc remarked that it would be great for big HB or some big point waves.

don't know how to link instagram but check "stokenbroke" they've got a 6'6 quad looks great condition.

thanks for that. Hesitant to pay 500 for that much damage.

motivation behind getting one of these is that long period swell we had a couple weeks ago. havocs comments seem to contradict what I am thinking I would use this for.
