    Hey just seeing if anyone has this board or any opinions on how you will think it will actually ride for stand up.. Im thinking bout buying it with my next paycheck so I could actually surf when the lifeguards are up cause it is soft and finless (think in oc theyll let it go).

    Breakers in Bethany will let you demo one for free. Bethany lifeguards allow it.

    it doesn't look like a good bodyboard, but it looks real fun for surfing when lifeguards are on duty.

    not sure about that board but the Toobs Herlihy is sick for stand up and skimming, not to mention the triple stringer is strong as hell

    The town of OCMD has/had a ordinance that bodyboards must not exceed 42 inches. Never seen them enforce the rule as far as measuring a "typical" bodyboard, but something along the lines ot "the one" may draw some attention if it doesn't meet the requirements.

    This is a quote from the town of OCMD site. I remember reading it in the Coastal Dispatch years ago.

    "Last Saturday Sgt. Fisher gave some advice about body boards and measured one to make sure it met the ordinance required. Body Boards must not exceed 42 inches according to city ordinance."

    This is the link I pulled it from. I saved the link because I never realized it was not to exceed 42" & I have never seen a guard measure a BB.

    Naaa. Not really interested in a standup specific board. I have seen people try it though and it looks alright. I would say demo it but as you and i both know...thats not possible in b-town right now.
