Patterson IF15?

I don’t have personal experience with it, but isn’t on my list to buy.

The best surf town is the one where there are waves but very few who surf.

This absolutely does you no good since it was custom but for waves that have push, works in anything from shoulder high to DOH. Anything bigger than that and well, the operator gets more nervous than the board. 6'7" x 19 1/4" x 2 1/2". Was shaped long before this liter measurement thing. Nuultule says 33.3 so somewhere around that I guess.

Oh and Cory Lopez is also a freak who surfs Pipe on a 5'5" x 19 1/4 fish. Or at least so the video goes.

You said you had no interest in Italo's model.

I was agreeing - if there's ever been a surfer your average surfer can't relate to it's Italo. Whatever he's riding is what I know I don't need under my feet.
Supposedly the board is very user friendly

sh!t, sorry... typo :D

It was supposed to read "It's on my list to buy".

I assume that you assume that because it's a pro's board, it's hard to ride?
@freeride76 seems to like it

I spoke to the Aus shaper, Gunther Rohn, and it's a pretty user friendly board. Here's my dims I'm playing with. Nothing about it screams "hard to ride"

@santacruzin Hydroshort!
If you liked the Hydronaut for big waves, the Hydroshort is the perfect for everything else. Probably a 5'7 or 5'8 OTR would be good for you. Epic board.

For East Coast surf, I like the Sharpeye Gamechanger, though it is probably more of an all-arounder than a dedicated high performance whip. Oldie but a goodie.
