    Rode an 8'2 Clandestino today. Wow, really really fun board. Now I want one. Unsure how big. I am only 110 lbs. But middle-aged. Was thinking 7 foot but anyone have any input? Paging Cuda. Thx

    The challenge with that board is getting that dogshit tailpad off a beautiful surfboard. #surffail

    You two don't want boost sweet airs? Come on.

    I would use that as a bargaining chip. Its easy to remove tail pads.

    I was going to boost an air on my 7 footer but the turbo tunnel fin got hung up in the lip.

    You were going so fast with that fin you probably pulled the air without knowing

    D, I wouldnt go shorter than 7'6 or so it's a different board shorter you go. Personally I want it to be a mini longboard vs a midlength. These boards imo (in addition to wave hogs quiver killers) are all about trim, bank, carve rinse and repeat. Under 7'6 you are going to lose a lot of that. That 7'0 would be a blast but be very different than the 8'2. could you noseride the 8'2? On the 8'6 5's were easy which could be another decision factor.

    Yes, I want all that: trim, bank, carve repeat. I also want to to some wraparound cutbacks a la Joel Tudor at Lowers. Hence the thoughts of a bit shorter. I guess I should just get two. Haha

    I was considering the Clandestino as a better wave board until Manny directed me to the Avocet. Ended up with a Serena. Either way, I think the choice may come down to what conditions you're surfing. Kind of a win-win since both of these boards are fantastic.
