Have to see what shakes out this year. I bet you're gonna love that board man. : )
    I'll keep that mind dude, probably will be a while like you said but who knows in a few years. I'm so stoked on this board, can't wait to get it wet for the 1st time

    What Volume?

    Mine is 6'5" x 21 x 2 5/8. Vol 1.3 cu ft....If I went with a swallow tail instead of round, the same board would have been 6'4" according to Mike.

    Haven't gotten to the volume yet, waiting to hear back from Mike so we can dig into some more details. They are backed up right now to 12 weeks so it's probably not on his high list of priorities just yet. I'm going back and forth on what I want to do with the color under the grid. Was thinking black or red, maybe go with the black w/red FCS Fusions, and a black & red tracktion pad. Probably keep the full panel white, but who knows, i'm still looking at different options.

    It's definitely sick and I can't wait to ride it at some point--it's dimpled. I will report back as soon as I have ridden it.
    So I see your buddies board on swaylock's, has he let u take it out for a spin yet? Trying to decide if I want the new tech or stick with the grid. Looks bad ass either way I'm sure

    Not yet. Unfortunately it was a new board, thus there haven't been any waves. I may get a couple cracks on it tomorrow if the forecast holds, we'll see...

    One thing to keep in mind, the new tech is something like 20% lighter than the Grid and as or more durable!

    Thanks for getting back to me, The ole new board curse huh? HAHA, it looks like something may be on the way, so i'll be looking forward to the ride reports on it. I was just was curious how it felt and performed, but i'm sure it's just as good or better than the grid, I was considering sticking with the grid for my FBF because I usually go with the "wait and see" attitude on anything brand spankin new, but after some discussion and thought I told Mike to go ahead and sign me up for the "kick", i mean might as well right?

    I told myself I would shape a surfboard as soon as I build my first boat. Been talking about doing the boat for a couple years now.... time is hard to come by.

    As for Coils... let's just say they are on a different tip than anyone else. Space Coast leaving SoCal in the dust!
