I'm seeing one of these in my future. Just have to figure out which shaper around CA. A lot of good options in here.

I’ve got 4. 3 morning of the earth 7’7, 6,6 and 5’8 all with channels and the new addition an McNeill TWO 7 ft. All great boards and work in all sized waves but they need steepness in the wave. Mushy flat waves they just don’t like them. For those waves my wider tailed boards like my fish or dharma are much better.
Stellar quiver fishy L! How is your Gary Mac "Two"? Is it a midlength, step up or both? More importantly how does the "Two" compare to your mote 7'7 and 6,6? Do tell I am frothy as, cheers

If anyone is interested, here's the one I shaped with my buddy a few months ago, and has been getting a lot of time in the water. Ride as a single or a twin (not a thruster / 2+1 / whatever the f).

Fins pictured are the NPJ + CW , and way too big for the board. I switched to the akila aipas, and those are close to perfect. I also ride it with a Josh Hall 7.5" single once in a while, but that's not what this thread is about.

6'10" x 19.25" x 2.5"
Color / glass by Alan Beels, and Mikah from addict did those pinlines.

I'd love to try a midlength twin from one of they guys who really know how to do it. This one's super-fun, and came from my garage....

the Two is almost more of a step up than a mid length. I find it needs speed and then it really excels. Really carvey and smooth when the speed is up and the wave has push. My 6’6 is pretty close to the feel of the Two. But the Mote boards have better momentum and connection to the wave if that’s makes sense. The 7’7 is different to all those boards. Almost like a glider but still can turn and perform when the waves get good. That extra swing weight gives it its unique feeling.

I just picked up a used Album Townsend twin, 7'0" Asymmetrical. Only had a few surfs on it in small waves but got one good wedgy down the line nug right (backside for me) and the thing lit up. I was going terminal velocity in two pumps. Very surprised at how well it turned backside. Cant wait for winter NW!
