Can’t say I didn’t look twice at that boar. Longer than I would really want tho.
Seems like the predecessor to The Moonstone longfish in the current range.

I had asked Matt about the Wilderness VS the Moonstone a while back. He said the Wilderness is fuller/less refined/meant to be a quad, and had a lot less R&D time on it compared to the Moonstone. My takeaway from it was that he seemed a lot more stoked on the Moonstone and he was pushing me that direction for what its worth

thanks. that's helpful. if it was a twin I would have probably tried it but thinking such a long, strait outline and quads it's probably just a bit too directional.

So bros, I'm not sure wha happen, but I was selling some boars in an O-side shop last week and a YOLO opportunity presented itself, and long story short... I came home with a new/unridden 7' Dankness single/quad. :foreheadslap: Wouldn't have bought it new, but I essentially traded 2 boars I never ride for it. So, no cash out... you know, it was pretty much free! And I was still net -1 boar.
Only ridden it once so far as a quad in marginal knee-high scripps pier, but it seems to do what I hoped (@Havoc -mode ML crowd killer for average/soft days weaving through the adult learners). I'd describe it as a mini Mini Glider, and is much more of what I want in a mid than the 7'2 single pin that I traded in. I've got a couple mushy reefs down south in mind. Not super sexy (and would usually go to Mitsven for an eggy shape like this), but I think it will be a solid, user-friendly addition to the quiver for years that I'll grab when I'm lazy and hopefully that my wife & kids & nephews could eventually use. #YOLO

Looks like he's been testing out quads lately too
:monkey: Gonna take more of my money in '22.
Was literally thinking the same thing when pondering if a bullet order is in my future.

Plasmic > is more fun than Superbuzz,,,,, oK I said it.

I've never tried a Mr. Buzz though...
dunno the last boar I had so much fun on regardless of conditions.

I got a teaser pic of my 5'6 Twinsman last night and the light green color is spot-on. The finish sander is supposed to get to it today and then QC, so I'm hoping for a Friday pick-up. Mine doesn't have the dimension laminate that I've seen on some recent Albums, which I prefer. I'll post glamour shots when she's done. Right now she's a little rough around the edges.
