    CJ Nelson 7’ Outlier. Like a big mini Simmons for small wave junk busting. Has belly in front and the roll goes into the rails so they don’t catch in chop and foam climbs. Knee to waist high is zero problem for it to zoom around on. See Realwatersports review.

    You ever tried it in an Evo? Can't recall if you have one or not. Since I got my Cymatic I've taken the Evo with me a couple of times but can't bring myself to ride it because I just want to ride the Cymatic. Need to ride the Evo again to see if I even think it is going to stay or be sold on.

    Whats your favorite good wave fish?

    Lost weight so sold my 6'2" RTT with a lot of foam, which had a PU blank with flax top and bottom. Just secured this lightly used 5'11" in stringerless eps and carbon rails. All my previous G Mc's have been in this construction so should work for me. Will collect from the owner in a few weeks.
