I bit the bullet. Ordered one today at 6’6, 22, 3 1/4. At this size it’s sort of encroaching on egg territory but I think it should be a pretty fun all arounder. It’s almost the same dimensions as my fish so I think it’ll be interesting to be able to compare the two. Excited to take this thing for a spin some day!

I’ve got nineO too‘S MBLV and it definitely favors a more shreddy approach to surfing. Tail is fairly wide at 12” up but tightens up pretty quick Into the thumb tail. Surfed some small waves with it but wants a little steepness to the face. Can take vertical lines Much easier than a fish. Has a lil more rocker than you would expect from just looking at the outline.

for what it’s worth, 2 of my friends tried it. Both offered to buy it from me after their surf haha. I recommend it if you want to surf a lil more aggressively without going full on short boarder.

I have posted about this in other threads but I had a 5'10, narrower than standard dims. It was an amazing board in everything from the Waco pool to relatively powerful waves north of point conception. Would definitely get another just like it. And I agree that 3 is better than 5 on this one.

I went with the 3 admittedly mostly because I like the look better. I’ve heard they are a little more “single fin” like? I’ve only ever ridden a 5 and enjoyed it but I’m excited to see the difference. How does the 5 change the performance of the mblv? Is there more drag?

How about a single? I just got this a few weeks ago custom from Jacob out at Cafe Haleiwa. He was super friendly and great to work with. Highly recommend. Only got the board out once so far and conditions were terrible, so can't comment on the ride too much yet, but it seemed promising. 5'7" MBLV single.
