I'm curious about the CI Water Hog.

Buddy of mine owns a home / lives in Diamond Head. He surfs south shore breaks but also small north shore & other HAW breaks. He's livin' the life, lol, got it made.

Back to the CI Water Hog: He purchased the 7'10 x 21 3/4 x 2 7/8 & raves about it. Although he also liked the 7'2 x 21 x 2 5/8 for more turning speed, et. al. CI makes this stick in combos from 7'0 up to 8'11.

Anyone here have experience with this breed of stick? Thoughts, recs, condemnations...? For mostly east coast use, early spring through late autumn: Assateague, VB, OBX, Maryland stuff, I'm a travln fool for water.
