    The boards Vet and KPD posted are both super good! Check out the latest ewing egg MC posted on Insta today, too. As I've said before, my current go-to is a 5'10, narrower-than-normal, MBLV 3. Goes great in everything small to big.

    Interesting. I recently picked up a Mblv and find that it still needs some push and a face.

    Yeah, small but not gutlesss. Ridden mine at waist high Ventura beachbreaks, good Rincon, big Jalama (pic 1) and even the wave pool at Waco (pic 2). I hear most people writing the MBLV off as the smaller wave board among the bonzer family. I think the only tricky part is its slightly lower rocker in bigger waves. I had a really good 6'4 custom B5 egg that was probably better in steeper stuff but not necessarily for any reason other than rocker.

    What does everyone reckon on a shaper for a bonzer speed egg in the 7’10” length?

    I’m looking for a good complement to my bigger boards, for bigger surf that I’d prefer less board under my feet.

    Should I stick with Malcom the OG, or some other good options? I saw a trim craft recently, a 7’10” Haley pin with a bonzer setup that also caught my eye.

    Good
    Good clip

    There's also some good footage floating around of Joel T surfing a bee at decent Moids, will try to find it.

    I’d have Malcolm shape you one......while the Haley Pin uses Bonzer runners, it’s not a Bonzer bottom.

    If you could go see, say, The Doors (orinina & in their prime) or you could could go see a Doors cover band, which would you choose to see?

    The board Malcolm Campbell built for me was perfect. The two others were less than (although the last one I may have had made too heavy and too thin). Bottom line is Malcolm's build was perfect and the first of the bunch.

    “Break on through to the other side” and order a CB Bonzer
