    Plasmic board review! Me: 155 pounds x 5'9", live kauai Board: 5'0" x 19.75" x 2.35" (stock dims, ordered from varial) This board is insane! I have a whole new outlook on summer groveling now that I have this board -- the ability to make speed and do full wraps/cutties on really bad...

    Album Surfboards

    tried a bunch of different twins in the plasmic and the AMT is the hammah; super squirty and just the right amount of release. i weigh 155 so def would need a bigger fin if you weigh much more i think duffy turned me onto fins with more cant working in a board with a deep double/channel like...

    *** Official Fin Thread ***

    Have those Shaper's fins; tried them in my twinsman and was too much fin for me but could be perfect in a bigger board. Will give them a go!

    *** Official Fin Thread ***

    Just got a 6'3" album moonstone with futures boxes and the fin rec is something like the FCS modern keel as opposed to a traditional upright fin (of which I have a bunch) any thoughts of what would be best in futures? I was looking at the true ames lovelace piggyback/keel or the captain fin...

    I got the twinsman glassed standard -- it def doesnt feel like a potato chip tho (could be just the fact that there's a fair amount of foam in the board). moonstone i got glassed 6/6x4 and feels solid no glasser's lam on the boards so maybe they did these in house; will report on how...

    Thinking of it as a Kauai winter "daily driver" for the shoulder to OH range depending on the wave I have had very similar experience with my stock twinsman as people above: moments of brilliance, but definitely did NOT like a flat wave -- will be interesting to see if a longer, skinnier...

    medium yolo alert -- i've never ordered TWO customs at once: 5’9” x 18.88” x 2.35” twinsman round pin with beak nose 6’3” x 19.25” x 2.44” moonstone round pin initial thoughts: beak nose twinsman carries a LOT more foam up front than my 5'4" version, which is exactly what I wanted. board...

    Puerto Sandino in a week and a half

    beachbreak past sandino that sharkbiscuit mentioned is dope -- definitely recommend getting over there for some emptier waves my experience was very similar to everyone elses: good wave, pretty crowded, tide crucial. we didn't time it with the good tide window there and so a lot of our...

    FWIW I had a SB with 5 boxes and tried A LOT of fin combos and by far my favorite was AMT twin + trailer controller quads was a close second but a little too much fin for me

    Album Surfboards

    I talked with Matt about a Moonstone RP vs. Townsend and he said the Townsend has more "midlength" vibes -- wider nose, flatter, and with more lower range but maybe less of a true stepup for pumping waves. Pretty much exactly what Duffy said... I wanted something to replace a magic 6'3" ledge...

    6'3" x 19.25" x 2.44" which is a little bit narrower/thinner than stock dims; I've found that I really like the feel of narrower twins especially when I want to put them on rail at high speed (also paddling less of an issue here compared to OB obvi) I think my ledge is around 6'3 x 19.5" x...

    Album Surfboards

    just ordered a 6'3" moonstone pin to replace the 6'3" ledge that I love (and also broke in half/repaired, so it's on it's last legs) matt said it's got similar paddle power with more rip-ability (my paraphrasing of our conversation) compared to the ledge very stoked to get in hand; will...

    Central California -> Northern Oregon Surf Camping

    Trip report! Surfed every day and got mostly good weather which feels like scoring given the high variability of the zones up there. Rode a 5'0" Album Plasmic pretty much the whole time which went well in the weird/flat/sometimes good waves on offer and was toasty warm in a 5/4 with boots except...

    Alpha Omega board review (Surfline)…

    have AO and it is a really really good feeling board for a specific kind of wave i have found as long as the wave has curve (even down to like knee high) it goes great, but does not like flat faced waves even if they are bigger; also with the hard rails and lots going on bottom wise not a great...
