Devon and Joel are secretly cool to each other, despite the training wheels.

a-hole I am.....

Had to sand the fin base and struggled to get the plate into the box. Had to use a screwdriver :roll: Shoulda stuck with my 3 board thruster quad quiver. $700 is a lot of money for a public servant.

How many boards do you really need when you surf one a week and feel like you are constantly dusting the rust off?

$700 is a "bargain" these days and prices are only gonna rise since 1) foam/resin supply chain is broken and 2) everyone want to shape; no one wants to laminate. Midlife man better get that proper egg stat.

Its a keeper! And hopefully less rust to dust off given the volume. 8) Fosho on the price. Some of the older guys, the ones with little SM presence aren't that back up, doing their own glassing, making the process about 5 weeks at a reasonable cost even with a little spay 8)

I thought this was fair review in similar conditions as I got mine for. Point beak footy from where I was lucky enough to learn how to surf 8) Def been curious about the long fish. He seems to think closest to SB.

I'm pretty sure Tex is the only one on here not riding a midlength now. Sad times. Stay strong, cowboy.
