    picked up a new sled yesterday...

    & i have to say, i am pretty damn stoked on it! i've got a really good feeling about this one...feels so right under my arm & in my hands; i'm sure it's going to feel exceptional under my feet! 6'0"x20 1/4"x2 5/8" "trash picker" as brian wynn calls his take on this type of board. i think this is going to be the "90%" board that i've been looking for...a board i can just grab & ride 90% & it'll suit the conditions.



    apologies for the crappy phone pics...tough to get a good shot w/ the way my apartment is laid out. aesthetically, i love the look the red fins give the board. really stands out. it's a very clean, simple design & look.
    gonna start off w/ a 6" center & see how that holds, but i'm thinking i'll probably end up running a 6.5" in it, like i've done in most other bonzers i've owned.
    so rare for me to pick up a board & there be waves soon after; i may have to just say "to hell w/ it" in regards to the bronchitis i've been battling this week & paddle out regardless!

    Sweet ride.I'm thinking the Salt water is going to help the bronchitis. Good luck with that baby.

    thanks! w/ a 6" & a 6.5" fin & this board, i might have my "what board do i bring on the honeymoon" issue sorted!

    oh yea, glassing is 6x4 deck, single 4 bottom & sanded gloss. simple, strong, & built to last. no 10 session deck cave-ins here!

    One of the sickest boards I've seen in a while! Nice sir.

    Looks really sweet! What's your height and weight? I'm looking to get a similar type of board shaped and (probably a bit smaller) and just wanted a comparison.

    Nice! Just picked up my own version of a 90% board yesterday from Rick at Gallery Surfboards.
    Standard Deviation with a squash tail -- 5'6 x 19 3/4 x 2 7/16.
    Artwork to match the colors we used for our new daughters nursery, which Rick did an excellent job with.
    Can't wait to put it in the water.

    i'm 6'0" & currently 203lbs, but dropping another 15-20lbs over the next few months. i tend to like a bit more volume to my boards

    brek, that thing is rad too! color work on the deck makes it look a lot bigger than it actually is!
