We used to produce licensed LSD surfboards. It kind of fell by the wayside. Luke had a phone consultation with each USA order, (that may have been the ultimate rub) and then there were a couple of guys that were authorized to finish them out and we had them glassed locally. I think by the time everybody was paid and all the hassle gone through, it just didn't pencil out.

Blanks are going up by the way. Frankly, prepare for everything to go up.

anyone subscribe to noel's patreon? i like his reviews bc he's trying to keep them unbiased. the board makeers don't like that haha. rusty and dhd seem to not like him bc he didn't like their boars. so instead of using feedback to improve their designs they just stopped sending him boards lol.

i'm gonna subscribe to his patreon so that he can keep the reviews unbiased and help us from buying turds.

Says he would have preferred it in EPS, but I thought he looked twitchier than usual on the 5'6"
I fully agree. I haven‘t been a shortboard in years but still like to think I sorta know what’s going on.

He’s surfing it from a traditional shortboard approach - bottom turn, off the top, to the flats, roundhouse, repeat.

It looks slow then twitchy to me with this type of surfing.

I bet the board is geared to the next frontier. Fast late take-off, mid face slight bottom turn, extend your stance, launch in the air. Probably flys like a bat surfing it mid face and beyond

It's a standard, no surprises shorty. But not meant to be miniaturised and ridden in super soft waves.

I thought he looked better than normal on the longer one. looks Like a great east coast Oz board.
