    Don't know how glider-y one can classify the Serena Pin as but I have a 9'4" and I'm always shocked as to how hard I can whip that thing around off the back foot. It also responds to slight stance and position changes like nothing else - I'd like to step down in size but I do dig the "long hull" thing.

    I'm sorry, I didn't mean to infer that the glider & the Vaquero were the same kind of ride. Just that the guy who I switched with has a similar taste in boards ( he eventually bought the glider a year later & I was too slow to pull the trigger & missed buying the Vaquero) Different kind of rides, same kind of riders!

    For sure! Definitely feel like the glider is an "in" kind of board to ride, and when I got the Serena Pin, the seller described it as such. It's interesting how versatile that shape has been for me in a number of wave types - I am definitely curious as to how a longer Vaquero rides as the only one I've had was a 7'6" and I just couldn't click with it.

    Definitely a project worth pursuing. You don't see a lot of them for sale for a reason. All the guys that I know that have them, ride them & love them. Marc is a super nice guy, give him a call.

    Quick insert from someone who has had a shorter Vaquero at 6'9? It ripped. Killer all around daily driver in a wide variety of conditions and handled some real heat smooth and easy.
    It did have a squared off MP arc tail being a cuda custom, and I never rode it in high energy barreling beach break that you cats in NJ have on tap regularly (I would have :cool:), but don't think that's what's being discussed here anyhow.
    I've seen Vaq's here in the 7' ish range slay point breaks of any swell period and size with ease.
    Very floaty killer paddling boards with forgiving stable platform.
    Don't be afraid to size down from 8+'s and gain some more pocket/rail to rail dancing steps.

    Will do. Hoping to get it wet this weekend.

    I can tell you that mine feels exactly how I hoped it would... mellow V ahead of the fin, foiled but not bladey, really beautifully blended contours on the bottom, etc. Marc's boards, in my experience, just feel like they have years of experience in them. I got this as a turny log alternative and it seems to fit the bill so far.
