    I have one. I'm a huge fan of Scott's boards (I have two poachers and the farberow). Mine is a 9'10". It's a solid board. Noserides insane when you are high and tight in the pocket. If you're not there, forget about noseriding it. It does have a fair amount of flip in the tail, which seems to allow it to actually be turned when on the nose. I initially rode it with the flex fin it came with, but that got destroyed due to a close encounter with the finger reef. I put my old 10" fin from an old KC I had in it, and it seems to work better than with the flex fin. But in reality, it's just a board, nothing special. I sold two of my KCs (they were delamming pretty good, and I'd had them for a decade +), when I did a major quiver downsizing a couple of years ago. Wish I had kept the KCs, and sold the Farberow. OTOH, my poachers are absolutely magic, and are my daily drivers from waist high up to DOH. Scott is an absolute pleasure to order boards from. If you're ever in Encinitas, feel free to reach out, and you can take mine for a spin.

    I had a 9’6”. I loved it for days inbetween where I normally ride logs and where shortboards become more fun (waist to chest high points). Quick, turny and super fun though not a particularly solid noserider. I upgraded to a Faberow II that was my go to log for years... he makes super good boards.

    Great boards. Had a 9'-3" that surfed the bigger days. Ran a 9.5 4A flex fin for drive off the bottom.

    The Farberow 1 was my go to for a long time. Great all around board, easy turning and excels in speedy beach break.

    I owned this one for a bit. Loved it. Tried to get it back but just missed out on it.

    I had a 9'6" a few years back. Great all arounder. Mine carried a little extra volume and didn't like bigger waves.

    Poachers are great boards too. Should have kept those.

    I’ve had mine almost 20 years. 19 I think this summer. It’s a nice wall piece, but 1000% better in the water. I’ve ridden it all around Florida, in California from ankle-high Scripps Pier to macking Steamers, and I’ve done some fishing off it in the keys. The thing is great in everything, in my opinion. An absolute masterpiece of a shape. And it’s a tank, too. Mine flew out of a pickup bed 15 years ago and barely got a scratch. Still don’t have any delam anywhere, although there’s a little water intrusion from a hairline crack in my fin box (now fixed). I’ve never ridden it with anything other than the stock Farberow flex fin. It’s perfect as is. If you can get one, get it. That’s my advice.
