Need some side bites for that new mid? Screaming deal at 25 bones. Hack off 5 and offer a clean 20 spot. These fins have been hard to find! Out is stock for days. Wish this was posted about a month ago, would jumped all over it. Ended up with Futures version for 60 plus bones. Just stupid.

Stretchy jump the shark with the new Johnny Wane Freeman JWF Mid-Life Model?

Is Channel forgoing short and stubby and going for a midlength quiver?

Going all in on that John Freeman signature mid, eh? Kind of surprised that Stretch went that route, but I guess there's money to be made... Make sure the kids don't bust you trying to sell their soft board before you have cash in hand!

You get me. Yes, I just got my second middie. But if it works out will sell the other one and no doubt replace with short stubby stretch now that we can get them from an oregon surf shop again...

Full disclosure I was a little bit high when I bought this which meant that I was WAAAAYYY overconfident in my surfing ability and very drawn to the wonderful aesthetic of this board. Suffice it to say, I would get tossed so hard on the waves this board is meant to ride. I have two other boards and will be sticking with those until I'm truly ready for the fall/winter swells where this board really comes alive. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I know the feeling-- I was a little bit high when I came up with my OSP user name and it's haunted me ever since.

This Murdey board has changed hands so many times-- it was shaped in '18 for that PC guy who seems to buy 100 boards per year, but for some reason he didn't want it, so Dan used it for himself for awhile before selling it off. Seems to have changed hands a couple times on CL, but the price remains the same for what Dan sold it for. Selling pic remains the same too... Not exactly reassuring provenance for a step up.

Not sure about channels on a thruster. I did have an old channeled thruster, a Caster none the less, whom is or was apparently a pioneer of the design in SD. Was a chunky early 90s shape more of an 80s thruster design and had glass ons. Rode it here and there and was fun, never in anything critical, but eventually my buddy reclaimed it. Would try channels on a twin or dedicated quad perhaps. Also wouldn't get a step up without a quad option. Prefer quad on backhand esp at the wave that actually requires a proper step.
