Seems to go well in nearly all conditions over 2 foot. It took a couple sessions to get used to and now love it. You can push really hard and still holds tight. Plenty of drive, and paddles really good for a short board. Loves being put on rail. I ordered a 6'1 and I'm almost 6'4 and it's perfect size for me. Glass job (4x4x4) is holding up real good even with 95 kg's bouncing around on it. Great board even for the waves in vic.
