Attachment 7655Attachment 7656Looks killer man. Phil told me you got it colored close to my zero, but it's definitely something way different. You will love that board. Its my go to board for larger surf.
I'll be seeing phil on saturday with another one of my friends I'm getting into custom shapes, and i might order one or two more from him as well. :)
I think it is great that Phil uses premium Futures fins. There aren't many shapers throwing those in for the price of a custom.
Took her out today for the first time. Wave were not really as predicted, but more in the knee to waist range. Very clean, and perfect weather. I only managed to get in about 4 good rides in a 1.5 hour session. I was a bit skeptical at first, but that was due to my lack of experience on this size board. I had one awesome right and one really good left. This board really feels stable on the face of the wave. It also turns much better than any other board I have ridden. I am really happy with the performance, and hope for some real waist high stuff with the incoming tide later today.
I really like the double concave bottom of the board. It grips in bigger stuff. I don't usually take it out in anything smaller than chest to head, but it should perform in the smaller waves. I caught tons of waves this morning on my fish that PT made.
