I have a 5'10 steve seebold shaped swallow tail.. it catches any friggen small mush, and up to head high barrels. Really my favorite board ever. bought it used for $70. Its a beater.. shore break.. no prob. Im not scared if it gets a buckle so i can just throw anuthing at it...and I rip it more than my new ci's and things.
Its that board that stays in my truck... for wherever im on the job and i find any surf.
