I’m ready to order and was set on getting an EVO till Shey mentioned the OB1. It looks as if it would be an easy transition and that the OB1 might offer even better performance. Not a lot of info out there. Does anyone have any experience on one? I gotta place my order soon.

The OB1 is just a cymatic with a diamond tail and people seem to really like the cymatic. Give it a go!

JKB is 100% right. However I would guess that a diamond tail and a double bat-tail tail with a wing have some variances! The Cymatic is my favorite Tomo board thus far due to the rocker and how well the board grovels in small waves. Also how well it holds in big waves and how maneuverable it is. So I would presume the OB1 is a safe bet to be a winner! But I haven’t personally given it a go. I would suggest pulling the trigger on the OB1 and ordering some what in-line with the stock dims of the Cymatic. smile

I ordered a hydroshort thinking it would be a sort of step up version of the Cymatic but they are quite different. I’m happy with both but can’t help wanting to give the OB1 a shot!

Side note: if Tomo is reading, [:)] I think the Cymatic rocker, Vader outline and template and hydronaut nose would be an epic combo!

Guess it'll be longer than the 4 week turn around.

Yeah I saw that. Still holding out hope that they will be ready for my Baja trip later this month...

I've had that before, then suddenly got the message that the boards were on their way. They're usually right on the money time-wise, but I think Shey just forgets to update it sometimes...

ive had the same thing happen a couple times. The chart is about a week or more behind actual progress sometimes.

My Patterson IF-15 arrived today. 6'1" x 19.5" x 2.5" XTR 8.C - First reaction is that the model isn't your typical HP WCT board, it's actually a pretty full outline, rail and foil. Kinda wish I went with slimmer and thinner dimensions than what I did. Might get it in the water this afternoon. Little bit of windswell. Might wait for better waves.

Thanks Deforest.

Ok, I forced the issue and paddled it out. It was waist high and sloppy, but the board worked surprisingly well. Really fast. Felt a little stiff at first, but got used to it. Looking forward to riding it in better waves.

Nice one! I got my Evo at the beginning of the month and I’m stoked on it.

Wow!

That looks really nice facelick

Surprised it has a fuller rail and foil. That isn't Timmy's typical style when it comes to hpsb's.

Racer1- looks like a sweet one. Is this meant to be a DD? I'm warming up to the idea of colored boards, especially ones that are still clean & subtle, like this. I tend to keep my boards for years, and the yellowing looks bad... although the XTRs have fared the best with remaining white.

I keep expecting there to be a glut of custom mishaps from their Xmas sale orders, but I haven't really seen much pop up on their stock section.

I liked the Italo board I had with smaller rakey fins. Coupled with the tail rocker, it turned on a dime.

anyone had their 8.0 feeling heavy? I had mine in the 8.0 glassing schedule, and a few people had mentioned the board seems a tad heavier than most normal boards.
