Any thoughts/reviews on the Disco? It seems to be an established California small/mid wave board but I've not seem much mention of it in terms of review/feedbck etc.

I would suggest the original HT2. It's one of my favorite boards ever.

HT2 is an excellent daily driver for California waves. Not a groveler but should work in thigh high waves with push up to chest high range.

Use the JJF Futures template or the Filipe FCS template.

I can't comment on the HT 2.5; I have one sitting in my boardbag at the moment but haven't ridden it because the waves have been pumping pretty much everywhere I've surfed for the past weeks.

Disco is a stubbier shortboard but the HT2 will keep you closer to standard HPSB dims which is good.

In my experience, the HT2 is borderline a good wave board.

It takes A LOT of energy to surf it in small or marginal waves.

Fine for a professional surfer. Maybe not the ideal shred stick if you want to get the most out of a session.

Disco looks fun but can't comment on that model specifically.

There are a lot of Sharpeyes in my house including 3 Discos. The Disco is a great all around small wave short board. I really like the Disco Cheater as a groveller that still works great in head high waves. The SB1 is a great all around high performance board and the HT2 is even better but the HT2 needs a real wave and a real good rider.


What's the difference between conservatives and liberals?

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

Post edited above to reflect HT2 is the board that makes a good CA daily driver.

I was falling asleep when I wrote that post.

HT is NOT a good daily driver.

It needs waves with push but it's a good all-round everyday waves board for me.

Probably not the best board for a place like Pipes or Grandview.

A shaper once told me Marcio's boards are great for small, light guys like me but bigger guys struggle on them.

I would say that the HT2 is a good fit for a very small percentage of surfers. For that elite group of rippers it is a fantastic board. Even those guys are going to have other boards in their quivers for when the waves are not up to what that board needs to perform.

Have you ridden the board yourself?

There's really nothing extreme about it.

I am not an elite ripper and the board worked well enough for me I've had two.

Salsa liked it too.

You can see how weak the conditions were at the Trestles when Filipe one the event on it:
