    Nice, i've been able to catch 6-8 footers so far with this one, but wondering if that's maxing it out or not

    by the way the new surfer mag got a big board selection review in it with some good tips about fins,boards,etc.i learned a lot things I never thought made a difference,but according to the mag I guess it matters.it gets real scientific,a good read and itll let you know what boards are good for what conditions

    Yeah, it's a swallow tail (per MD), pretty pulled in for sure, it was that or go with the moon tail which looks cool too, but I wanted the traditional swallow tail instead. I sure hope to ride it in some solid waves, 6-8 so far which is pretty solid, i'm not trying to ride the largest waves in the world, but 10-12 sure sounds fun (next wave milestone)

    Some guys insist that bonzers work best in big, fast surf. I've only ridden them in under head high.

    Yea, 757... I went back to my stack of mags and couldn't find it. Which issue???

    That "golden ratio" concept is interesting, though...
