I know Ward and he is always ripping. That tail is perfect for SC points (looks like the Jobson-I believe Dynamic Balance that used to be commonsight at OB in the late 80's early 90's). Based on that post his boards and the SK he refers to would make and easy two shaper choice.

Could be ages before I see my 6'4 Desert Storm (NZ-AUS border opening). Very tempted to order a CI Taco Grinder in the meantime.

Since reading @freeride76 "4 board quiver" response, it reminded me that I've been wanting to check out Webster's shapes. Gotta admit, I'm a bit of a wuss when it comes to bigger waves (i.e. super confident in my comfort zone, but a little outside than that and I start shitting bricks), so the board might not be utilised to it's full potential, but I've been thinking of a big arse desert storm to get over myself and push myself a bit. Either that, or the Wacko ... something about the wider outlines speaks to me!

Do it.

They are such a trip to surf - so different. And that's just me speaking from my limited 6'10 experience. (Super bloody good value, too, so it's no going to cost you an arm and a leg).

The Wacko is a barrel/slab board, which apparently goes really well as a slight step up for those used to shorter boards. The DS is just a big, meaty battle axe, but surprisingly nimble when you put your foot on the tailblock. Feels different due to the soft rails and vee throughout.

My biggest Webster is a 7'6 Spartan, but I'm keen on getting a 9'0 DS. Covid will determine how long that takes.

Really want a 5'6 Christenson fish, but just can't justify dropping that much on a board...my ol Kane Garden will have to do (after a deck reglass) for another summer season.

Had a shaper modify his concaves and rails to be like the Christenson fish I had. Cant tell the difference. This one is my fav twin keel fish yet.

No, I think you can go through HD website for other builds. Or message him on Instagram. I believe Rusty, Bob Mitsven, Hank Warner, and Wegener have all shaped PUs for HD.

My sister, who works at HIC, called to tell me my boards are done. I posted about this before. Did some work for them and took trade for payment. Got a 6’4 prior to the lockdown. And once the boss said I could get my other two boards I ordered them just in case.

M7 by Kerry Tokoro. 6’0 x 20 x 2 3/4. 34.3 L.
Glassed 4oz bottom 4oz + 3/4 4oz on deck. I asked Kerry if he could widen the nose area to help paddling into waves. This will be a NS daily driver or when town gets a littl over head and hollow.

Mojo by Kerry Tokoro. This is Josh Moniz’s model. 5’10 x 20 x 2 3/4. Glassed single 4 oz bottom single 4oz s-cloth deck with front and tail patches. I asked Kerry if he could widen the outline. Board feels pretty light. Gonna bring this board and the Vesso Love Seat tomorrow morning. If the waves look like it’s standing up going to ride the Mojo if it’s soft like today gonna opt for the fish.
