agreed. If I had this board (well the 1.0 actually) in the pre-dumpster diver/fish era it would have been the only thing I'd ever need.This is a tough one. I would probably go with the Driver 2.0. It's pretty good in crap waves for a HPSB but it will handle plenty size. Walled or bowly waves, seems like it works in anything with a little push.
