Very curious to hear more, Goofy. Guessing you'll be very happy.

Today was even better than yesterday, and the DS went like a dream. Clean 2xOH.

IB, it was a little bit big for the beachie I surfed today, lots of closeouts, duckdiving/bailing and getting pushed out of position.
Hopefully during the week is better.
Awesome you scored though! Well done

Light vee in front half running into spiral vee (or vee double concave, if you like) on the shorter ones. Vee all the way on the big beasts. Makes for a very smooth ride.

Flat deck, but rails are tapered a bit. What I'm trying to say is, that it's a high volume 3" board that feels like a normal 3" board in your hand.

One more yesterday: 4ft semi closeout, but powerful, beachie. How good is it to get in early and set up the barrel to annihilation!

I just had my 6'10 in Fiji. We had a week surfing Frigates from 2-6ft, the trades were up, had glass off periods occasionally, DS left my short board for dead in the wind, especially off the top turning back into the wind. I surfed as the 2+1 from 2-4ft, was loads of fun, then as a quad on the larger days. Worked well as both. Very similar wind conditions (strong) to the Illawarra that drew me to the DS in the first place. I could confidently take this as a one board quiver to Fiji or other places with grunt.

And how good does that momentum feel when setting up a big section, ay.

Great reviews and in those windy conditions.
Its amazing how an offshore wind can make a heavy board become light and flighty from the updrafting wind on a big faced wave

nothing better than paddling into the wind on a big wave on a heavy board and feeling that momentum take you over the ledge

Hi,
Looking for a beefed up stepup for indo. Considering a DS.. Current stepup: 6'3 19'3/4 33.5lts. Looking for around same size but approx 36-38lts. I'm 5'8 height approx 70kg. Middle aged. DS? Or would this size DS 'defeat the purpose' of a DS. Realistically, looking at waves 4-6ft. Any comment/suggestions?
Cheers

Fuck mate please ask someone to show you how to put up a link

It’s getting ridiculous now and for some reason I find it incredibly frustrating that you refuse to learn!

Ha ha I’ve known for a while now. But yes it took me a while.

You always have good info but it’s a pain in the arse to have to look elsewhere to see it!
