What are you going to get
Couldn't even tell you a model and want something thing in the mid 7' range. Sold the Mitsven that was there and want something more shred. Thought about a Speeg but heard to look for something different. Prob thinking something like a Crowd Killer'ish style board. Be happy to hear ideas from the Stamps Camp.

I got that Rob Brown Twinzer and dont love it. Have had a couple good ones but not grabbing it first when I go surf. Wanted a mid 7's with that but Rob talked me out of it. It has a thin tail and I think thats part of it feeling sluggish for "me". We talked and will prob get one with more foam going soon.

I've got a 7-2 Bento Box that looks a lot like Havoc's boar
I don't even remember why I went Bento over WTF but catching waves with it is like cheating
I think it was because it's designed to be a little more responsive...

I borrowed Tim's personal Bento Box, maybe a 5'8 quad. It was a really fun and responsive grovellor. I've come close to ordering one several times but never pulled the trigger.

I would look at the following:

(1) for a very HP egg shape: Roswell EPS with thruster;
(2) for cheater, fun board, cruiser: a version of Havoc's WTFO or a mini Log. I'll post some pics of my 7'6
(3) for fishy shape: a long fish TKF or quad
(4) for hippie vibes: a Sultwin

And so much more. A stretched out Flare or Shadow sound fun too.

Tim can and will make any type of board . His shaping range and willingness to be flexible and respond to customer feedback are unmatched. If you can explain what you're looking for in a halfway understandable manner, Tim will hit a home run.

boards to death. been trying to convince myself i need something new again but for the first time in my life i think ive got everything i need, and might need to start riding other peoples boards again.

Just got back from a detailed appointment and got one on order. Ive got boards for my son from him but never me.

After an hour of looking over boards I brought and then coming up with a Stretched out Shadow Quad EPS. Great talking story about people we both know from old skool Harbour days since my uncle worked for Rich in the Old Days.
