Update--- not calling it the Twin Vader, as that name was already being used by someone else, but here's a good look at it
Looks awesome! Excited to try it.

Do you think you'll ever work with Varial? Would love to get it with Varial

I have a 6’9” Sakal Sabre. nothing but positives to say. The thing actually has way more upper end range than I expected. I assumed it would be like a long board replacement but it likes a decent wave. It’s become a sit outside the pack on good days board when I’m not in the mood to battle.
Question on your Sabre. Do you have a preferred set of fins you like in it? Mine is supposed to be ready in the next week or so.

Ur stocked. But you may not like my answer. I use the c-drive nvs twin which visually don’t appeal to me. Ryan told me to try them and then I saw Scott bass using them in that model so I went for it. Looks weird but works. I put those fins in day 1 and never switched them out. Ryan also said an upright twin works in small waves and the placement is for keels which is the go to. C drives are a combo between those.

Does Sakal have a shop where you can check out the Sabre or is it custom only? Thought I remember there being one in HB but haven't been there in awhile.

Hey, thanks for the recommendation. I've been curious about those fins. I may have to pick up a set.

Ryan Sakal does the Sabre. His dad Ed is the one who has Sakal surfboards in HB. I think Ryan typically does customs, but like trifish said there are 3 or 4 in stock at boardsource.
