    I've always been interested in the 5'4 secret menu, that new 8'0 looks fun too. Havent seen any over on the east coast, would like to hear thoughts also.

    the 5'4 Almond in that series could well be just the ticket for my granddaughter, currently doing a credible job of beating the crap out of her Dad's Stretch...

    Would be fun on those days when my back won’t me to pop up. I have an older keel Fin Fish for those days but a softy would feel a lot better on my ribs.

    Well, ok. Got that out of the way.

    Seems like a fun, cheapish option for something keep in the car or for folks here who take boards up and down many flights of steps, then on the subway to a beach that's crowded with hard projectiles (sorry, Mizrachi). I like the outline of the Joy and I like that it can be recycled. Not really in the market for something like this myself, but it looks interesting.

    This is the way I feel about them. Heard the Surf Splendor with Almond (can’t remember his name right now) and was intrigued especially about the green aspect. Did see some recently at a local shop and the seams(?) where the mold comes together on the rail was terrifyingly ragged leaving the inner thigh of the user looking like the worse case of whatever STD terrifies you the most...
