    If that's THIS? - https://www.instagram.com/p/B4KjwV3A0IE/

    Then Definitely rad. I've seen DH on quite a few midlengths but nothing touches the high performance flow he's getting here.
    Killer for him and CI.

    Saw an Instagram post from him saying the board is about to hit the stores. Really looks good!

    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..

    There are three certainties in life; death, taxes and DanSan suggesting a Bruce Fowler shaped board. And honestly, he has me interested.

    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.
