Yep, they're great too. Small wave boards and guns alike.

Thanks IB, spoiled for choices hey

Heard the new Pyzel quads are good too, haven't checked them out.

I'm definitely after something in fibreglass/G10

Beast!

My 8'6 lets me know exactly how much it would take to swing that thing around and motor into a wave. And how scary a wave it would take on.

Will never graduate to that class :-)

Anyone know where that board is headed and what waves the owner has in mind? Absolute weapon.

keen for a 2nd hand DS if anyone sees one (udo!) Something around 6'10 - 7'6 in stock dims. got a trip to fiji in August planned and i want to be able to surf if its 6ft+. I dont think my current 6'8 x 18 7/8 x 2 1/2 will cut the mustard!

Was thinking of selling my six, six but paddled out to Devlin Roses wake yesterday on it and jeez it paddles well and i might start riding it more often if i can stay off the booze and smokes.Seems like such a great design looking it up and down feeling the rails.It suits jakes more than my rasta torus twin which i really only bought for indo small days but surf it at a few two to three foot waves around here.

no but while paddling in from jakes on a five foot day i was near the dangerous end section called the Thud paddling into the next break and a set came and cleaned me up onto dry reef...i thought it would have snapped but no sign of any dings even.

Good advice, Udo.

It's a board for life - or as close to that as you'll ever get. Yet not expensive.

I'm not sure of the $ cost - Lets say $1100 with Colour and you keep it 10yrs = Top Value.

Yeah mate just running out of time! Might go down for a visit this week and check out the stock boards. The 6’10 x 20 1/2 x 3 1/4 seems pretty good to me. I’m a futures man too.

Andrew P I’ve got a 6’10, stock dims and 48.5L. Hasn’t been getting much use so I was thinking of possibly offloading it (I want to get a 6’6 DS to replace my current Dylan 6’6 step up) but I rode it yesterday at Bells. Solid and raw and it went really well so I’m going to have to hold on sorry.

I was looking on his website yesterday and it looks like there’s DSs in stock so you might get one standard dims without any wait.

Really strong and well built boards. You should get a lot of life out of one.

Seeing all the comments here - if anyone in the Sydney area wants to do a board swap, I'd be keen to swap my 6'6 (38.5L) for either a 6'8 or the slim 6'10 (43.5L)

Love my DS but needs a couple extra inches to get what I want out of it.

Heck yes, that's some clearance.

Here's another bloke having a good cleanout. Maybe he scared the wits out of himself last swell and is calling it a day with big waves.

Could be right IB, but he sounds willing and has a quiver to match. The first one has a repaired ding from a broken leggie at Jaws.

Or just realized that Port Stevens is more 6'0 territory ? Lot of money spent to learn that lesson....
