I'd say more volume than your HPSB.


Race did you get the old 5'6 @ 33L or the new dims @ 31?

The old ones (that I have) is 32.5 liters at 5'6 and feels absolutely perfect to me.

So gotta go custom either way. But I LOVE XTR.

Took out my new Toy X today. 6 2 19 3/4 2 1/2. 32L.
Board paddles super well. easy to get around the line up. First wave board took off with ease, engaged down the line with so much speed, smooth cut back and re-engage the board again down the line. Connects sections with ease all the way to the beach. Such a stupid easy board to surf. Makes surfing so much easier as an intermediate surfer and boost your confidence level. Looking forward to more sessions. Toy x rides much sharper than its previous model but pretty much same feel. By far the most user friendly board I have ever used. Thanks #Superbrand

So sick. You are stoked Racer1.
Took out the Toy X yesterday for session 2. As a kook, I probably did one of the cleanest hits on a turn yesterday. Gathered so much speed, eyed the section, timed the turn perfectly following the motion of the wave and landed in flat. I usually just try to go for a turn and ends up in a messy salad with other boards..lol Best. Board. Ever.

I think what makes the board is the full outline. Plenty of volume all around. Bit wider nose and narrow squash tail allows quick instant transitioning/changing direction. Will take few additional pics

I think the USA "made in america" board builders "marketing" gimmick falls more inline with a cult than the firewire following -deforest
