Mid length surfboards

Just after getting a mid length surfboard shaped for surfing waves around Victor harbour region.
Something that's going to go well in small shitty beach breaks kinda stuff.

I've always liked Black Apache surfboards but can't seem to get hold of them at the moment.

Anybody know if they're still shaping boards or have other recommendations for a mid length board?
Cheers.

Got round to taking a few nice snaps.

This is a 7'4" 21' 3/8" 2' 1/2" single fin.

A copy of one of my favourite singles originally shaped by Jeremy Tonner.

Mike Psillakis went through every fine detail regarding the old one and the unique thing about this board is the wide-point quite far past the mid-point, super low rocker but that's what makes it glide and go so well while also being able to cheater five it so well. The tail comes in to a thin rounded pin making it really lose and maneouvarable.

Mike kept pretty much the same template but moved the wide-point back a touch closer to the mid-point which should make it easier to swing around while preserving that flatness and volume up front. It's got a single to slight V concave.

Can't wait to surf it!
