ride report…

2012, by Jim

an update on the 5’8 i shaped a month or so ago..loaned it to jamie borders, who rode it as a twin fin (w/ futures “elevons”)…took a couple of sessions to dial, but the verdict was “super fun board”

i got it back, installed FCS plugs in the standard thruster position and took it out…went insane from the first wave, and it was only waist high..can’t wait for a good head high day.  the low rocker & the area in the nose all help in paddling, while the straight outline gives it a ton of drive for such a short board..a lot of fun in a small package….

brandon blackmon’s new one has similar characteristics in the rocker and basic outline (with a few cosmetic changes)…should be a blast !
