I feel your sorrow. I had a Gary McNeill gun in this reddish/pink that looked fantastic! So I ordered a Carrera in the same color but instead it came out bubble gum, barbie dream-mo-bile HOT PINK. So sad. I ended up having it painted, I just couldn't pull it off.

Fun times. It's so easy to surf when it's like that
I haven't seen the manager of the local surf shop recently. I guessed he was taking a long trip in the Mentawais or something but no...
Just saw him in the lineup today for the first time since June and he said he was out for 2 months with a busted ear drum. He didn't even get drug deep, he...
I ultimately sold my Twinsman. I had a 5'11 and the problem for me was that it likes such a good wave, that by the time it's pumping enough to really get the most out of that board I don't really want to be on a 5'11. If I could do over I would get a stretched out Twinsman to 6'4 maybe.
Big day. Took a few beat downs but I was wearing an impact vest and those things make such a difference. I only wear it when it's proper, I don't like the idea of becoming reliant on the vest, but on the ~8 sessions a year I do wear one it's pure luxury just floating to the surface after a...
I usually get 646 for my step ups. Would get 44/6 for my good wave shorties most of the time too. At the far extreme, I got one of my guns glassed 6664 and that was too much.
One thing that doesn't get talked about enough imo is epoxy resin. In my experience it noticeably reduces weight and...
First good big wave session I've had in ages. I caught a bunch of great waves, not a single closeout to be found.
Out at the bombie got caught and took 2 big sets on the head back to back, by the end of which I was approaching an area of mild concern, being an exhausted oxygen deprived mess...
Foooook yeah!!! I can't wait to not buy that
But then again, I guess I'm not the target market. Haven't ridden a longboard since I learned how to surf
If... I was going to buy a log though, I'd probably look up Christenson
Sick pic! Same for me, unless I massively fuck up my surf planning for the day then that's the biggest I'm ever riding a shortboard in.
I have a round tail shadow and it feels like it might have a bit higher top end than the P2, but the Shadow doesn't carry quite as much speed either. Yin and Yang
Well sh!t, that's good to hear. If it can hold in nicely when it's doh then I'm sold.
I was looking for a board to buy in heavy glassed varial and have forever as my travel board, and it looks like this one might be it.
Only had it out for one session but already it feels epic. About head high and it was taking me down the line with beautiful speed. Now I'm curious to find out what it's upper range is like. But I totally agree with you. Based on one session anyways it seems to be an awesome board
I live in Bali so if you're thinking: I love that board but I won't be there for 7 months, that's cool. I'll be here till July 2024.
Selling it because I will be leaving Bali next year and need to gradually sell my boards.
Also, to be honest 5'8 is just too short for me. Will never go below...
