eyah dude, i love it so far. it's super ersponsive but very smooth at the same time. biggest it's been out was on a head high day and i think it's going to stay that way. it doesn't paddle nearly as fast as my 6'1
Always get warmer than you think you'll need. dont let some shop retailer sell you the lighter stuff. That will make you come back again for the warmer gear a month later. Your muscles will thank you later. Study!!
