    I heard you need a customized suit by the time you are 40 yrs old. So i take it that i also need a custom surfboard by the time i'm 40. Well. i still got some years before then, but I think i found what board i want to emulate - the Chemistry Alchemist https://www.chemistrysurfboards.com/alchemist I like the double swallow tail, quad set up. I've heard of this board for a while, but never took a real good look until this past wknd. Who's rode them and can review?- also considering Alchemist Remix since it's a hi-performance model. fyi's: I searched the forum and no one went into real detail but nothing but praise bout em. Also, i live on Folly Beach, so consider the waves for this would be everyday board. i'm meeting up with a guy next week who's looking to sell his, but it looks like it's been tried and tested - not sure if i should do the buy and tryout vs go all in on a custom newbie

    In my opinion if you're unsure and never rode one but you've had good luck with custom new boards then in my opinion I would always go with the custom new board. With a custom you get exactly what you asked for you have a good relationship with your shaper you know what to expect from him and he knows what to expect from you. Being honest with your shaper will get you I'm much better board then somebody's used board or one off the rack no matter who makes it or what it is. Like I said it's just my opinion and what I've personally been through

    Looks fun, kinda like the Dwart i had. Just make sure you get one with enough volume to float the bloat. Buy it, try it. Or like bro said have a shaper make it, its a pretty generic shape.

    I cant review this particular Chemistry Board but i have gotten two customs from Chemistry. One was a 5'5" Experimental and the other was a 5'10" disk. I got them custom because i wanted to tweak the dimensions and fin setup a bit. Working with their shaper, Jason Bennett, by phone was a good experience, the board were as promised and both ride great. Really good riding boards.
