    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.

    A biscuit is the perfect name for a surfer's surfboard.....
