Nostalgic post! Honestly, it was one of the best shortboards my brother and I surfed. Worked best in better surf (3-5ft decent power), it felt great and under control in those conditions. I surfed it at my normal volume range and we both regret selling it off. Haven't found...

That's good to hear! A Burch asymm might be my next custom order for sure. I don't think I can shape something like that. Thanks for the recommendation, I'll give the Akila's a try if I can find a set.
