    I don’t know about this one or if it’s wave condition or fin setups. It’s hard to differ from everyone being a big fan of these guys. Jared Mell rips but something about that clip and Devon’s clip doesn’t look right in the cutbacks.

    It reminds me of when a board either needs to be nursed through fast turns or catches rail mid turn and that’s what it looks like might be happening. comparing Devons footage to his One California Day segment there is some noticeable difference when you just look at the fluidity of the cutbacks.

    Only ridden it with a Knost 7" flex with side bites but it turns amazingly, not sure how it would go as a single but will try it one day. Paddles nearly as well as my Catch soft top. Definitely a user friendly board, well worth the outlay!!

    Doesn’t really look sticky in this



    jared Mel has quite a “knost” jerky style and rides those 70s style single fins, I think Devon looks better on it.

    My friends waiting on a 6’10 but pukas in Spain have taken ages to get them done. Be interesting to compare to My takayama Howard special. Suspect the CI will have a bit more squirt and allow a more aggressive style

    It's an egg. Just an egg with a CI sticker. Sucker!

    Hey Vet, haven't heard from you in a while. Hope you're doing okay in the nursing home. Life can be cruel sometimes so try to remember the good times. Wishing you well mate.

    Great marketing by CI. Hire Devon, get the convict bogan to shell out WAY too much money for an egg. "But it's a CI egg!". Sucker.
