Been eyeing these boards since they came out and interested in seeing anyone on here with a ride report. Read the 'erbb's reviews, etc., but given our differences in conditions, etc. I thought I toss out this questions everyone here...
Anyone ridden one of these boards...can provide me with a bit of info. (board, your dims, etc.)? Thanks in advance!
Have one and absolutely love it.... Had mine for almost a year and its still looks new. I've rode it from thigh high mush to overhead barrels. It loves waist to head high waves, and where you would do 2 turns on a wave your doing three maybe four. It's real fast and just goes where you want it to go. I highly recommend the stretch controller fins because that's the magic set up for me. I'm 220 6 ft and ride a 5'8 21.25 2.75, my everyday shortboard is 6'4' 19.75 2.58. I def could have went shorter but wanted it to grovel and took in consideration wearing winter suits. You can't wrong and go with eps tech it's worth the extra durability.image.jpg
Looks like a superbuzz...to be honest, I'm partial to that design due with the lower tail rocker, foil, etc. Basically, thinking I'm going to pull the trigger on both and give the design a legitimate year. I love my hayden's, but this design makes sense to me and I really want to try something different. As for the epoxy tech--don't think I'll ever go back to a standard poly board when ordering a custom--maybe XTR, but I want the love handles, bamboo stringer...the Stretch works. In regards to the controllers...I've been looking around for them for a while and can't find them. Even fins unlimited's site doesn't seem to have info on them. Regardless, I too heard that the extra fin area helps with the tail width. I currently have a mini-simmons with a 16" tail...I only use speed dialers in it nothing else has the same hold...so I'm looking to get a set of fins from Stretch as well.
Thanks for the info...I have a few other questions for you...how the ordered worked, wait times, shipping, etc., but will contact you via PM. I appreciate the help!
