Rusty SD round tail. The OG SD was one of my all time favorites. I decided to go big boy volume for the first time on this. Tail looks more narrow in the pics than reality.

6'4 x 19.75 x 2.6
36 liters
Stocked.

that thing looks so good. did you order custom or pick one up stock? how'd you go about sizing it? can't decide if it's supposed to be like a HPSB or a mini stap

I went by the factory and picked it off the shelf.

They explained ( and you can tell by feeling it up) that it's decent wave DD to mini step range. Goes is chest high conditions that have some semblance of push.

I prefer my flare for the smaller days anyway.

Corey Graham shortboard




This thing looks pretty fun. I'm actually halfway tempted except that it's EPS. I was riding ~29l shortboards (phantom and ghost) when I was 30, now at 37 the extra foam doesn't seem like a bad idea. My 5'6" fish is about 34l like this thing and I love it.
Half a second I thought you were trolling @racer1 with a gothic R. lam on the nose blade.

I did this on my last order.

Wanted to try something in classic dims I used to ride in the 90s.

I went with a 5'11 x 18.88 x 2.25 (it's 2" over my height). Yes, I know......hobbit status. It's the middle board in the photo.

I wouldn't dd it on the regular because it likes a little more push to get going but when there is some power, the board feels incredible. The longer rail line feels really nice to drive off.

I've been seriously considering ordering the exact same thing in Varial thinking it will give it a little better low end range.
