Finally, a Varial vs. DA carbon fiber Album comparison for the discerning erBB YOLOer. We need answers. Noel, Kale, husky Craig, even Yuri... no one's reviews are answering the real tough questions for this yolo life. LOL
100% Yuri would do a comparison if we sent him a message. But then again, you couldn't really trust his review of how they surf... straight down the line in mushy closeouts.

We need Aruka to settle the carbon YOLO comparison between DA and Varial. But I believe he's still short a Black Dart.

Only one man here can provide the truest comparison..

That’s a friggin investment! Is that a wallhanger or does someone actually buy it to surf it?

edit: 5’5 x20x2.44 (30L) LB on Varial. such a fun boar. Someone’s gonna be stocked. :poke:

How do you size these things? I might be down to spend $600 on a used Twinsman or UTF.
Is 5’0 Twinsman of 4’7 too small for a guy that’s 5’6”?

Asher seems to be riding smaller boards than me and he’s 6ft or something.

You don't want either of those boards.

No reason to own the first one where you surf, especially at that size (which I'm not 100% sure would float you anyway.)

And the Twinsman is way too small for you.

Dims seem perfect for you. Buy them.

Pretty sure those boards were built for a kid

I was debating ordering a slightly shorter/wider/thicker Twinsmand (I have a stock 5'8) and here pops up a 5'7 x 20" x 2.5" but the god damn dank rasta swirl?! I cant. Also the base color looks like my baby's sh!t.

I'm guessing that it didn't make it on Album's and/or Matt's IG.
