This thing does just what the specs page on this website says it will do. It goes like a rocket. Paddles about as near to a longboard as you could expect from a weird little board - glides along using its volume without feeling like a boat on the face of the wave. The beak or low entry rocker is perfect for low slanting summer waves. The twinnie tail allows for plenty of pivot - more than I've ever had before in a thruster (never ridden a twinnie before and, without a word of a lie, it actually makes you surf like Asher Pacey!). The most fun you can have in under 6 ft surf!
