Has anyone surfed the Bing Pig Pin? I'm thinking of picking one up for knee to chest high, mid to high tide cruising and would be interested in any feedback.

Added an 8'6 Pig Pin about 10 months ago, and it has a firm place in my current rotation. I grab it for anything from knee/thigh to head high. Really likes when it's juicy and gets in early on steep wedges. I'm natural foot and it rides great both front and backside. Moderately pinched rails engage the wave and hold the highline with speed. Cruisy on softer waves. The Pig plan shape is subtle...can't really tell it's wide point back. Looks more symmetrical to me. I have it finned with an 8" TA Skip. Bottom is concave in front of the logo transitioning to vee out the back. I ride mostly NJ beach breaks, and I've also rode it on RI points. Very happy ride!

How is the acceleration on takeoff? Does it need to get in early and gain momentum or is it an instant acceleration in those juicier waves?

More like fade paddle in...trim...accelerate. Once you get moving it keeps pace with the wave and makes sections. I've done those jet takeoffs on turn and go and angle takeoffs in the same direction of the wave.
