    Adding a new board

    Last summer I bought a Kinetic Tricuspid (CI Biscuit shape) from Gary down here in Myrtle. I before that I had been riding a biscuit the past 2 summers. I love both boards and its about the only thing I ride anymore. I turned 30 this past winter and went into the garage to pull out 4 old Perfection thrusters that haven't seen water time in God knows how long. The 6'1 pin saw action in Irene/Earl/Igor and Costa...<br /><br />About a month ago I traded in all of those for a Deodorizer (another Gary Wilson) plank. Now I have just the 2 boards 5'4 Tricus and the 5'2 Deo. I feel like they have pretty much every thing covered from Jax to the OBX, outside of big hurricane surf.<br /><br />With that being said, I want one more board. Something to ride when its really firing and the Tricuspid is starting to max out, but something that will still be easy to paddle and catch waves in the typical mush we have here.<br /><br />I'm heading to Hawaii next month and CR in Decemeber so it needs to be reliable in real surf too.<br /><br />I've been checking out some of CIs boards as well as some Losts. Anyone recommend the Driver/Sub Driver...or any of the Scorchers? Also was looking at the Rocket.<br /><br />As for the CIs, maybe the Barney Rubble or the new TLOW. I though about the new flyer but I think they might be too much of a smaller wave board.<br /><br />Anyone with any input would be appreciated.<br /><br />Thanks

    Sounds like you've got a relationship with a local shaper or two....I would start with those guys, if getting a custom appeals to you, or just to pick their brains for a good starting point.

    Get Gary to make you something like a Mini-Driver, you won't be disappointed.

    Love it! Best quiver ever.

    Which one of the 5'9"s works best in the 20+ foot range? Or is that when you grab the 6'0"!!

    Something like the krmp sounds like it will be what ur looking for...check the fcd site--link then have your local guy shape it up for you. Get used to that type of board in our waves...then when you go to Hawaii I just buy something used that is similar rather then pay to travel with it.

    Just to add: My buddy just had an FCD Octo delivered. 6'3", the thing looks and feels absolutely sweet and may be similar to something you might like. Good foil but carries a little more volume than the DM3 he has and I know from experience the DM3 is an insanely sweet board, just may be a little low on the volume side for what you are looking at getting.
