Looking into this new model from DHD, the 3DV. Looks pretty f*ing awesome and I'm considering getting one (probably a 5'11''). Haven't found any ride reports on the internets though. Anyone ridden it?

My concern is that it turns out to be a small wave short board, I'm looking for more of a DD up to overhead surf.

cheers

I know. But if you check DHD's vimeo video of that board, that title says "small wave board"... It does carry decent volume, the standard 6'0'' runs at 32l.

Yes, trust the marketing video beer . Of course the shaper is going to tell you it's a "small wave board that also works in good waves" and then proceed to show you "small wave" surfing in shoulder-head high snapper. If you surf well it will surf well. If you surf shit it will surf shit. Also just because a 6'0 has 32L doesn't mean it's going to light up in waist high crap. My 6'1 32L Stretch 2x4 sure won't.

Difference is Stretch's boards do usually care some more volume whereas DHD's don't.

Looked at these the other day. They are all around so-cal boards.

Ive said this before Gold Coast small waves =\= California small waves. Chest head high punchy waves on the Gold coastbare considered small. Gold Coast shapers makes refined boards for steep punchy surf not mushy Cardiff or wherever you surf. Gold Coast waves are steep, hollow, and punchy even at 1ft

Darrens small wave boards in general all work into the head high to overhead range for socal surf. Get one. You wont be disappointed unless you are surfing so cal grovel surf

The 3dv and the 3dx are almost exactly the same. The 3dx is wider, more volume, no vee and comes with a 5 fun set up. The 3dv is a thruster less width and volume and has vee out the tail.

Have yet to see anyone riding one in person. Slightly off topic but the Dx1 is the most ridden model on the Gold Coast by the pros and Bros and is hard to go wrong with. The 3d series is a bit more user friendly or so it seems. Not sure where in socal to go feel one up though

Just got a DHD Ducks Nuts DNA that I love in good surf with some push. Definitely has its lower limits. Will agree its not good when the waves get soft. But I have other boards for that.
