It's funny you should say that as the PU Lost Rocket (which I'm pretty sure is the same shape as the Stealth) is the reason I am now on Firewire. I got one a few Christmas holidays ago and the deck ended up in poor condition only after about 10-15 surfs - this is nothing against the integrity of the board / company - it was just glassed too light for my heavy foot! The shop offered to sell it for me and offered me a dominator as a demo. I told him not to bother as I wouldn't pay that much for a board - he said "what else have you got to ride and what else have you got to lose?" - couldn't argue with that - the moment I caught my first 2ft wave on that dominator (at 41yrs and 95kg's) I felt like I had officially just got back 10 years of surfing and the rest they say.....is history!

I could not believe some of my friends would pay that much for a board just like you. Then I tried a 6'2" Futura, and like you Goanna, the rest was history. Been surfing them ever since.
