    Hydra Lives !!

    Yes, I think that's Uppers and I wouldn't call that grovel either but would certainly deem it fun! That would likely be the high end limit for the Hydra. Still tho you can kind of gather what gas pedal it offers..

    Darks Arts EPS and Carbon Fiber Surfboards

    Anyone compared these dark arts with the Black dart https://lostsurfboards.net/black-dart/ Looks similar but different. Aside from riding characteristics The Black dart comes with a severe heat warning I wonder if the DA version is a little more user friendly?

    What Boards You Got On Order?

    I know Ward and he is always ripping. That tail is perfect for SC points (looks like the Jobson-I believe Dynamic Balance that used to be commonsight at OB in the late 80's early 90's). Based on that post his boards and the SK he refers to would make and easy two shaper choice.

    FCS H4

    I remember when the H2 came out a lot of people were off them but I clicked with them instantly, pretty sure it was the extreme cant that i liked the most. I broke tabs on several and wound up trying the H3 which had, I think normal cant and loved that as well. Question, would you say the h4...

    Design Talk

    Craig Sugihara. You used to work there around that time, yes? If my memory serves I was told he didn't shape many at the time, maybe the vee nose to tail was something from the early 80's before rocker and concaves became dominant features?

    Design Talk
