    Anyone have a report on these midlengths? Particularly interested in how they might go in winter time east coast conditions, you know, nor'easters, sandbars, whole lot of rubber.

    No experience with a Campbell Bros Alpha Omega, but if you know anything about Oxnard and the stretch of beach break that Malcolm and Duncan grew up surfing, you know how similar it is to NY/NJ beach breaks. I've found that anything they design (I have owned 4 different CB Bonzers) works well in our waves. I love a good MR style twin in our surf. One of my favorite boards is a twin + trailer that sits between a MR style and CI MTF. Can't speak to how it would work up in Maine, but if they designed it to surf Silver Strand at OH it should serve you well in NY during the winter.

    From what i'm gathering via the Bing website and Calvani's video about the Alpha Pin, it's virtually identical to a board I've been shaping/surfing for a couple years, and assuming they ride similar i'm sure you'll love it. Deep V in the tail makes it feel loose when on rail, but trims very quick from the mid section if you're standing over that concave pocket. I'm sure Beach House could hook you up with one!

    I’ve been trying to avoid that Brewer , thanks for Bringing it up.

    The board looks a little stiff for Heavy Beach breaks. Check the review and video. It’s a super wide & thick board.



    How about this guy, I’m sure Maine Surf Union has a few.

    No worries, Gallery. Thanks everyone. That "menu" over at Enlighten is insane. The CB E-Wing Egg seems topical...

    Doing some do diligence on a potential board for thick rubber, lazy shoulders, and decent waves. Looked at the trimcraft burnders, but they seem to skew smaller and may have some overlap with an old 6'8 Faktion I've got. Still on the the list.

    Jborbone, what are some stock dims on the shape?

    Thanks again. Good stuff to chew on.

    At the risk of stepping on DanSan's toes, maybe check with Bruce Fowler. Or maybe a Serena pocket rocket?
