Have ridden this board for over a year now, in pretty much every kind of condition, using various fins.
So this board is fast,like most twins are, not only fast, but super maneuverable, thanks to that pulled in tail.
With different fin combos you could make it feel like a thruster with more speed, (future EN's), or if you like it loose and drivey putting a set of keels is great for those smaller weak waves.
This board paddles unreal for the relatively short rail line, but generous amount of width and foam up front allows for getting in super early, which is great but if your late you need to be mindful not to catch that wide point on the drop.
I am Surprised at how much ranged this board has, i have had some 4-6ft days in both beach and point breaks, and surprised how well it handled the conditions.
The durability is its downfall IMO, the deck is full of compression, even with a tail pad and front deck grip, and id blown both fins box's over the course of the year as well as some other dings, the glass feels a little light...
Would i still buy this board if i could go back?
It's a weapon
and i feel it smoothed out my surfing, but didn't hold me back when i wanted to attack the wave like you would on a Standard short board.
You can find a bunch of POV videos of me surfing this board on my youtube channel.
