Any of you riding these things? Thoughts? Opinions? Dims you like?
This is my first post here, which I'm diving into simply because I like my MBLV so much. It's my favorite board at the moment. I have the three fin set up. Mine was glassed at Moonlight, with no glass issues at all (Moonlight has always been great in my experience). I'm 6'2" and I'm packing more weight than normal at 220lbs (new baby, lots of work lately), so I ordered mine a little bigger than normal. It's 6'2" and around 21" wide. Catches waves great, performs front side and back side - all around great board.Any of you riding these things? Thoughts? Opinions? Dims you like?
Definitely a yay! Or even a hell yay! My MLV (I think it’s a 5’8”) (3 fin) is one of my favorite boards I’ve ever owned. It’s loose, fast, flowy and you can put the lil’ fucker on rail. I surf it on anything under head high but barreling beachbreak. I would talk to Malcolm and get his thoughts on sizing ‘cuz these things were made to be rode short and pack the volume in. I’m 6’2” and 205lbs and mine couldn’t be more perfectly sized. If yer ever in the greater Ventura cultural mecca, you’re welcome to take it for a spin.
Thank you these replies are both really helpful! I go up to Ventura pretty often, I’ll take you up on that. I’m 6’2 250lbs and very used to longboards so I usually err on the side of bigger boards. I’ll have to ask about sizing up- I’ve found that thickness is most helpful for me and it’s hard to go under 3”. However, that’s my own amateur assessment so I’d leave it to the pros. I guess I’m mostly looking for something that will help me gain confidence backside and helps me get better at turning. Also just an excuse to have something cool.
You been made aware of this...?
Selling my MBLV. If you know Bonzers, then you know what this board is capable of. Malcolm shaped this for me about a year ago. Im an old guy and wanted to compete with the longboarders. This board...delaware.craigslist.org
Now about that 6'10 b5 step-up?
