    One of my handshapes, 9.5/10 condition.

    Outline clearly draws inspiration from the McVee, but it sports a much more east-coast friendly rocker. Edges through the tail and side-bites make putting the board on rail a bit easier given the added bite from the side-bites and the feeling of a narrower profile from the edges.

    Volan+Volan+6oz deck
    Volan+Volan belly
    glassed to last.

    I've been riding this all summer and absolutely love it but I want to shape myself one as a 7'0" instead of a 7'8" (I'm only 5'5" and 130lbs so the 7'0" will be a bit more rippable for me).

    Dude that's beautiful. Love those little glass-on nubbins! If this doesn't FLY out the door I'd love to give it a try.

    Wow man - what a sick looking board. Soooo tempting. What sort of conditions / waves did you ride it in and what types of conditions did it like best?

    Thanks man!

    I mostly rode it in waist high gutless windswell since that's all we've had this summer, but I also got it out on a head high punchy day (two Fridays ago) and a belly high glassy day (every morning last week). Unsurprisingly it liked the belly high and glassy day the most given the ability to feel the edge at play on an open face. Also, the wide tail keeps the outline nice and straight meaning less rail was dragging in the wall so you could really feel the effortless trim. Given the fact that it's still a hull at heart and not a Tracker style mid-length, steep pitching waves proved to be challenging for the relatively low rocker and the wide tail was tough to keep planted in the pocket.

    Might also just be my opinion since I'm a smaller dude, but the weight of the heavy glass job also feels very nice in waves chest high and under because it seems to help carry momentum around sections opposed to being detrimental in more critical conditions (harder to maneuver).
