Heard that it'll be more like April in the UK now, with very limited numbers as there are only 200 boards allocated to Europe in this shipment.
I imagine you'll be seeing them before then in Aus.

Hey Dawn, those boards are going to be delivered in the first quarter of this year, there may be orders in with ETAs already. Have you called a few AUS shops to ask?

Hey Chris,getting a different story here in oz.Most shops saying expecting delivery mid year for the Mb pro model.Whats the scoop?
- Dec 2011
I spoke to Firewire direct early last week in OZ and i was told that the MB Pro will be available in early April.....
yeah that is fairly accurate. So you ALL HAVE BEEN SO PATIENT!!!!
Unofficially, keep your eyes peeled to the website next week....
As in March edition of Transworld surf
Michel Bourez model 5'10 18 1/2 27/16
Combines speed, power and a tight turning radius in a high performance board
To be ridden 1" to 2" shorter than your standard short board
How about a bit of a review on your 5'10 MB
How does it compare to your other boards
What waves does it work best
Where would it sit in your quiver
What are the main differences from the Taj pro ( I know MB fell for FW boards from riding a Taj)
As well as the best fin setup
Also can you order one with a spray
hey wandi, see below. A little pressed for time so I can't go super deep into it, but have a look.
-How does it compare to your other boards: The Michel what I would call an "all around high performance shortboard." You are riding it waist to overhead and a half, easily. it grovels like a CHAMP, seriously, you will be blown away riding it in small stuff and hooking it meaty stuff. It will likely steal a lot of my Alternator time.
-What waves does it work best: all kinds. Probably dislikes soft slopey waves the most, but you are on it in nearly anything over stomach high as long as there is a little push. Think waist to overhead and a half.
-Where would it sit in your quiver: My quiver has been adjusted after a period of experimentation. I ride a potato, elfuego, alternator, Michel, flexfire. My 510 Michel is good but the rail is too short for my preference. I will be getting a 600 when it comes in. boards are listed in order of surf size from small to big, but will likely bump my Alternator a bit.
-What are the main differences from the Taj pro ( I know MB fell for FW boards from riding a Taj): width and thickness and volume per unit length. Same rocker.
-As well as the best fin setup: varies from person to person, but all MB models will come in Futures as he is a team rider.
-Also can you order one with a spray: we don't currently offer custom spray jobs. we encourage folks to do that post purchase.
Cheers and hope thuds helps.
I was going to say how do you find riding a 5'10" x 18.5" shortboard Chris? I can barely get my head around that... The 6'0" x 18.75" sounds perfect for an everyday board for me, but with the thickness @ 2.57" my chicken legs wouldn't have a chance of loading it up!
Looks like the MB has a springer also? Could be worth adding that to the spec section on the main site.
Michel bourez board specs
Hi nev,or anyone in FireWire land.Would like to know the dimensions of the mb.That is nose,tail and centre of buoyancy.As yet the specs are not on the board formula page.I realize you guys have been flat out but would really appreciate the info on that board.Thanks
because its a new model, i don't have all those specs yet. our CAD team is putting together a new spec sheet, but until I get that, I can't get that data to you. Just have t one patient for the time being.
