    Who's got one of those sweet Andreinis, Mandalas, or whatever other company is making boards with those funky Greenough edge rails? They look fun. Let's hear your take on it.

    Hey Chilly. Here is an great interview with Marc Andreini where he discusses his relationship with Greenough and the development of the edge board.

    Also below is my friend Cheyne ripping an Anderson Putnam Edge.

    According to Marc they are made to be usable in less than ideal conditions. Think windy and bumpy. I’m cautiously curious about them. I have a line on a loaner. I’ll report back when and if I get a chance to give it a go.

    I'm curious too. "Less than ideal" is all I surf.

    Yeah, that was kind of what I was thinking.

    Specifically, I'm interested in the speed. I watched the vimeo vid -- so many variables come into play, of course, but he's hauling a**, especially on the cutbacks.

    Malibootay, not sure if you were kidding and I try not to respond to comments that aren't helpful, but if being intrigued by this design makes me a hipster then, yeah man, what the hell, I'm a hipster, a 60-year-old hipster in mom jeans, flannel shirts that date back to the 70s and no facial hair. The only bow tie I've ever worn was a clip-on my mom made me wear to church in 1966, which, now that I think of it, I might put on ebay.

    It was kind of a joke, but I'm glad you're hip. I'm not into edge boards, too far fetched for me.

    I posted a put down of the edge boards some time back. Now I’m more interested in the design. Oh and I’m sporting some facial hair for the first time in over 30 yrs. too. Wierd.

    Have you started listening to Morrissey?

    My brain hits a wall on how the board would react/feel when it goes on rail. Straight line, I get it. But putting it on rail means going through some pretty drastic changes -- that's where my skepticism comes in. Can't imagine how the transition would be smooth and/or predictable. Love to hear feedback from people who've ridden the design.
