    XTR

    But where would it be on the bottom? A small one down by tail would be fine. An image of where and what size the lam is would be appreciated.

    Who are the shapers of your quiver?

    I doubt the original designer ever laid a hand on any of my current four boards which are all custom, but those designers are: Jon Pyzel Hayden Cox Matt Parker Britt Merrick

    I'd need a paddle with that.

    YOLO ALERTS

    I'm sure they do since or they have easy access since they're a few blocks away.

    CI Twin Pin

    One of the managers at my local surf shop (E.T Surfboards) who surfs very well liked the AM's best. This was years ago when the model first came out. FWIW, he never used the training wheel.

    YOLO ALERTS

    I'm in the same YOLO boat. I'll probably need to go custom since I want a squash 5'7, light deck tint and FCSII.

    Rounded pin tail twins

    Yeah, the first part looks like it's Pavones (though, I've never surfed that part of the country). I mistakenly clicked in at 3:00 in where the footage is at Escondida, which was the same as a shorter video floating around that's only in that zone. I should have watched the whole vid before typing.

    Pretty sure the video is at Playa Escondida, which isn't anywhere near the Matapalo that I'm aware of that's south of Quepos.

    Album Surfboards

    If money isn't a concern, I'd get a Varial carbon with a lighter color deck tint. XTR can get a little chattery when the surf gets solid. Dark Arts can absorb water if you ding it. Varial has a more dampened ride. I think the carbon minimizes my one issue with Varial, which is how easily it...

    Yeah, there are too many variables to expect getting the same board from the same file. I know some shapers keep notes of how many sanding passes etc., even with only one set of hands touching a board, which doesn't happen very often with big labels, unless you're one of their main team guys...

    This was five years ago and the issue was a WAY off center (center) fin plug. They made that right, but the remade board felt and rode much different than a early version of the Barking Spider that I brought in to get copied.

    Rusty D Min

    I was messing around with Rusty's volume calculator and found it interesting that if I kept everything else the same, but changed the age parameter from my actual age of 50 to 32, the recommended volume changed by one liter. I'm just as fit and surf as well as I did 18 years ago and ride...
