    sitting down with one of my shapers next week, come up with a new one, a do it all LB for fun sized surf. Thinking of having him clone a sweet 9'6 Frye he has in his collection (he'll get close, however, only Frye can clone Frye)..

    What's your favorite ride these days? And what's next on your list?

    Incredibly fast, smooth and versatile board.

    working on tuning up an '85 10' skip square tail just like that one. Mines a single fin, you think an 8.5" skip fin will do the job? I like that 2 + 1 option you have there

    Probably. I wouldn’t want to speak for SF, but I have heard he thinks most fins are “too big”. That being said smaller than the (typical) 1” per foot of board would make sense. An 8.5” rather than the typical 10” +/- often seen on a board that size.

    I've been all about the midlength egg. I've been between these self shaped purple 8ft wide point back single and my trusty 7'4 2+1. I have 2 more midlenths in the works that I'll glass when it warms up a bit... I have a bit of an addiction. IMG_1521632862438.jpg IMG_1521592589662.jpg IMG_1521632862438.jpg IMG_1521592589662.jpg

    8’8 cooperfish v bottom. Super fast paddler early entry good off rail , trims thru the flats and in the pocket and can crank turnstil. Also handles larger surf a bit better than a log.

    I've been jazzed about a new-to-me 8'4" Bing PTLW. Incredibly responsive x quick paddle. Exactly what I needed for these punchy 2-4ft winters.

    I always enjoy riding my 10' Takayama In the Pink, but have been having the most fun on the bigger days on a 8' Bing Collector setup as 2+1. It's an easy paddler, fast for my skill level, and a great board to improve on. Heading out on a surf family road trip this week and taking both boards.
