    Al Merrick Biscuit vs. Patterson Pill

    Im in the market for either one of these. Anyone know the differences in these boards? preferences? pros/cons of each. Basically anything comparing the two boards?

    The biscuit is a nice board. I have the 6'x21"x3" with future fins. It works in anything knee high to head high. Gets a bit skippy at head high, especially with hard offshore winds (due to its increased buoyancy over typical boards - biscuits have a lot of volume). Maneuvers nice for a board with thick rails and width. The single to double concave is clutch for release out the tail. I love this board. Since I bought it back in march its all I've been riding, sorry sharpeye

    I'm 6'4" 200lbs and this board floats me nicely. Hope it helps you gauge what dimensions your looking for.
