FYI...icons of surrf...has these midlengths by chocolate fish..speed mcqueen..look very similiar..which i would consider
If i wasnt..but i would
Get bruce fowlers shape ..his nvm whith a 2+1 rounded pintail..
anyway
Speaking of excellent customer service( bruce is it for me..like you couldnt tell)
And icons did me a solid...
After one of their kids shipped a knost fin in an flimsy envelope..no padding..
And missing part of the screw/ plate..
Shipping another screw...and i protested..but sonny insisted...shirts..pants..hat..package..etc..
Anyway..it was pretty cool...

I saw another video of DH tearing it up on a long long right hander. He was riding a red or orange CI mid. The post was about him attending an event to introduce the new shape. Probably on Instagram.

Back in my Short-board days, I never met a CI that I didn't like. Although, plenty I couldn't afford!

Then I bought a 5'6 CI twin keel with glass on's that I rode for about 12 years (until the ol' dad bod kicked in). That's when all my short boards started to disappear.

Despite having a very similar outline to my 6'6 FCD Hueavo Ranchero, I'm pretty excited to see this board.

Their new fish beard looks to hi-pro for me.

Thanks! Sent me looking and found 1:01 of the smoothest high speed flow pocket surfing rimming trimming railing and sailing.
Perfect musical score to the ride as well.

I was out in the water at Bu that day, he lost his board and I was on the inside, got to feel it up a bit. It's very light and HP feeling, unlike his Tyler and Takayama models. Obviously he was ripping.
