    I'd go Egg over Magic for smaller waves. While my Mitsven Magic works in smaller waves, it really seems to go in better surf. I recently picked up a Takayama Stone Steps and only had it out for one session in small, gutless surf, and it handled it well. Considering the surf at stone steps it's probably a good choice. Similar outline to the special k and the liddle above.

    For an all rounder I don’t feel you can beat an egg. It’s the best compromise if you don’t have a big board for small waves and a board for bigger waves. It spans the spectrum and can’t be beat.

    Gotta throw in my bid for Vaquero. Lots of owners here, I bet you could arrange a test run if the water ever opens up.

    I have been using an 8.6 Serena for the last year and half in all conditions. I have fun on it in smaller stuff but once there is some power or larger waves it really starts to shine. That said I prefer my really thin foiled 7.2 Vaquero for all out fun until it gets overhead. That board is so amazing.

    What bottom contours does your stone steps have?

    I think it's called a rolled belly or vee. Looks like it from tip to tip.

    Thats rad. All of the ones Ive seen for sale seemed to be flat with no hull/belly.

    Maybe you can see it in the photos. It's not super pronounced, but it's not flat. I don't really have anything to compare it to at the moment.
