I have had a couple sessions on my lady’s Arenal Anomaly that we picked up from a jammer a while back. Wanted to share a couple thoughts on this shape.

Even at 8’4 this goes better with a bit of a wave. Think 3ft+ or 2ft plus if pitchy. Goes better as wave size goes up. Not a longboard killer type of board at this size vs some other options (the ones with wider tails).

When you give it a wave, holy moly this thing is fun. You can really drive it off the bottom and surf it hard. It rewards you. Off the lip floaters are super fun. Really fun running down the line. Turns feel super controlled and fluid.

This board will do whatever you make it do. It responds well when pushed. Surprising at times.

Feels like a light weight blank was used. Glassing feels normal. Running a 8.5 skip fin.

A fun one that feels neutral, controlled and versatile. Great travel board option.
