I checked the cams a couple times. Lots of dudes on it early. Later, it looked much bigger and wild with only a few guys on it. The crazy thing was that there were several South Florida spots that were virtually flat while that was all happening. It was like all of the fetch had been pointed...
This new one has the dimples, but they seem a little more subtle than prior ones I've had. I dropped the last one on concrete, directly onto the rail -- only got a scratch.
With this new one, I've already bonked it into a metal pole and a car door with no damage.
Up close, the build looks...

I'm not sure what it is -- might be a wider wider board or based off that. I just told him what I was thinking and sent him a couple pictures from his instagram, and he sent me a design draw-up with this.
Yeah, I ordered that one in 2015 if it's the one I think it is. I bet it still looks nearly new. The M80 I got in that same order was probably a top 5 all time board for me; I still regret selling it.
