Noel said he's reviewing the Revo next. It will be interesting to see him ride a board after his hip surgery.

Duke seems like a cool dude the couple of times I've chatted with him. Wouldn't mind getting a board from him at some point.

Saw his wrecking ball on the rack at xtr. Pretty trippy looking beveled rails on that thing.

There are some post-surgery clips of him on it in his video about the hip surgery. Not looking normal, which really showed his condition at that time because the Revo is so easy to surf.

Cool video. Duke seems like a good guy (so does Akila). Interesting that Duke puts some curve in the nose. I like how Duke rounds the tip on his nose a little bit too, vs. Akila that has his pretty traditional.

I thought it was interesting that he's riding a 5'5". That board has 28.5L. I thought he would have went with the 5'4".
