Ive ridden a bunch of different Stewarts and they all work well. He shaped for both McPhillips and Kramer in the 90s and they were both great surfers. I really dont think you can go wrong with a Stewart if youre looking for tail performance with the ability to noseride. If you want a pure noserider, try Donalds model T.

I got a Redline 11 a few months back to keep me in the water while I work on rehabbing my shoulder. The Redline 11 is a very similar board to the RPM which I also considered. I'm a shortboarder who would occasionally ride a traditional noserider. It definitely took some getting used to. Timing and turning are very different from both a shortboard and a traditional noserider. After about three sessions where I was worried that it wasn't going to work for me I got it dialed in. Placement and size of the center fin makes a big difference in how well one of these boards work. Fin placement was the biggest reason my first few sessions did not meet expectations. Once I got that dialed in everything began to click. You wouldn't expect fin placement of the center fin on a thruster longboard to be so critical but it really is on these boards for some reason.

Conservatives get angry when you lie to them. Liberals get angry when you tell
them the truth.
