    I was actually really suprised by how well it paddled and floated me. As soon as I started paddling it out to the lineup I was stoked because I was worried that it was going to paddle like a shortboard. It has most of its volume throughout the middle of the board and its 19 inches wide which really makes the difference with this shape. The waves I surf at the NSB inlet are fairly top to bottom so that certainly helps the board perform at a higher level for sure. I cant see myself riding this board in anything mushy but it is a great board for waves with punch and Im sure it comes alive in overhead barrels, looking forward to that!

        Honestly, I have not ridden a shortboard in a long time because there are so many good performance hybrids out there now but I used to ride a 5 '11 X 18 1/2 X 2 1/4. The Mini Driver pretty much replaces a shortboard because it has a really pulled in pintail that can handle bigger surf but it has the hybrid quality in the extra volume it hides in the center of the board. I love the feel of a good pintail, they work so good in a variety of conditions.

            Pretty sure I surfed with mdayton360 yesterday morning at the NSB inlet. Board looks like it goes quite well, and the guy rips, so I'm believing what he's got to say about it.
