SO far so good. I bought one back in August but only till recently have been able to ride and it in Earl and Igor. No gimmicks with this board, it is what it is. I'll let you know how it goes this winter.
I beleive they run a little thinner than most boards . so as long as ur not a heavy stocky dude, you should be good. I mean it's sick ****ing board, but i think it's best suited for skinny, lanky, slim fit dudes.
I got my lil bro a BZ Hubb and that **** is much thicker and a lot more buoyant. there are times where im paddling like crazy, and i miss the wave.... ot her than it's great.... I mite be looking at TURBO for my future board.
