Just a bit of an update on my 6'8" review, i surfed it this morning in clean head high lefts, mostly fat waves that broke from the top down but 40-50m rides. While i was out there with one other guy i kept saying to myself i have to tell someone about how good this board goes. I know people love the advance and other high volume short boards but this board does everything and more. It does paddle well, im just the slackest paddler out there, it catches anything and you can fade back to the power source and put it on rail and it takes off. To make falling sections if you come down with a floater it is stable in the foam and then increases its speed down the line. Having a longer rail line it is easy to draw out a bottom turn and then stomp on the tail for a mid face carve or wrap around cutback, the round tail is perfect for that and it has never dug a rail. I kept praising Dan Mann every paddle back out and thinking that for a 95-100 kg older surfer, say 45 up, this board is perfect. It is so easy to ride and has enough performance to keep you thinking you can still surf ok. It is a huge volume board that could put you off in the board store, but it is a wolf in sheeps clothing. 2 board quiver, 6'8" Dom / 6'4" Potatonater. coming soon.
