    Had a Surf + 'New Toy' which is almost exactly the same. Short, wide, thick, double bump thumb tail. Rode it 2 times and sold it. Then saw it 6 months later on Craigs List. Seemed to really bog down in the mushy stuff. When it was clean, wasit +, i'd use a different board. You might use it in chest high clean waves.... but for what i got it for, it didnt work.

    Just saw the Rascal 2 in TransWorld Surf. I think that would be more conducive to NJ waves...

    I ride a Timmy Patterson Rising Sun and love it. Wide full volume shortboard that can catch anything from knee high on up.

    i had a dwart & pretty much hated it...for a variety of different reasons. i admittedly may have gone too big w/ it (5'10"), but still...not my thing. i like egg shapes, but this one didn't do anything for me, nor did the ci biscuit.
    dunno about the t.patterson or doc stuff, tho. maybe they're different (more refined).

    i think my issues are mostly to do w/ the rails...both the dwart & biscuit have VERY, VERY full rails, to the point of being almost blobby. i like my rails, not pinched, but kind of halfway between full & pinched.

    i went 5'10" on the dwart b/c i thought i'd gone too small w/ the biscuit (5'8"). unfortunately, i felt like i was going to blow out my shoulders when i duck dove the thing.

    so yea, not a fan of the dwart/biscuit type shapes. i do like eggs, tho. my current go-to board is a 6'0" wynn bonzer egg. i love the thing...if we could get some quality surf, i'd like to really push the limits on it & see just what the thing can handle. i already know that it does the knee-chest range well. my big question is just how big is too big for this board?

    Ron, that timmy patterson board is really nice looking. I would like to try out one of those shapes sometime. Looking for something different as my go-to board than the RNF, something with a little more pulled in nose. You were def getting some solid turns on that a few weeks ago though.

    This has nothing to do with your topic

    Andy, I think you would love the rising sun. I had it out every day of surf this week from Tuesday till this morning and it was perfect in all of it. The last day we were out when you were fooling around on the longboard was too small for it, but more because the form was so bad, if that slop had been formed up better it would have been fine in that to. I know I have told you how I hate to move from board to board depending on conditions, well this board seems to be the best all around board I have ever had. I am loving the McNabb twin fin set with tiny trailer I bought from Mitchell. Check out this video of Alek Parker on a Rising Sun http://vimeo.com/9338561.

    I think you're right...the rails in those board are really round and full and the boards have low rocker..i dont like that feel either...they never seem to me like they can hold a high line.

    Ive got a 6'6" egg that Jon Ashton made me a few years ago that has normal shortboard rocker and rails. It comes alive once the waves get over chest high and can handle size...for arond here. My guess is that bonzer egg would like fly in HH lined up waves.
