    Honestly, I'm kinda disappointed and still hope he's real. I was really looking forward to kooking that board up. This week should be the time to do it too.

    Brew, you gonna be out at IOP this weekend?

    its not really necessary, I think we all know how the report would read...

    the board paddles well once you get it going and you can paddle into the wave super early.
    Riding the board does feel a little weird but it doesnt take much of a wave to push it. turning the board is very difficult and slow. for a straight shooter its a good board but you can't take advantage of the the entire face of the wave. It was fun but I wouldnt take it out in anything over stomach to chest high.

    Hell yes. Might have to even take a half day on Friday if it is really waist and clean. New board should be here tomorrow, and I could use waist+ to try it out.

    As cool as the board may look, I don't think it will work in our local surf. It is mostly short period swell here, and when it is longer than 9 sec, you need fast turning ability. Trimming probably won't get you there. That said, I was hoping to have a local wooden board shaper.

    I'm taking Friday off too. I was planning on going to Folly on Friday than IOP on Saturday but I can change my plans, let's meet up and catch some waves.... That is if you're real and not someone else's alter ego.

    Sounds like a plan. I will keep an eye on the forecast, and let you know for sure on thurs. I usually hit IOP between 26th and 28th, though I do like 9th when it isn't crowded.

    Wrong thread, but once again you are mistaken.
