I usually only ride vintage boards. My go to’s are my 9’10 Greek Eliminator and 10’ Bing DN noserider
I have a ‘66 9’7(?) Jacob’s 422 on the way that I can’t wait to get wet. And a few others that rarely get in the water. Then a few new sticks that I only ride when I’m feeling like it.

Some favorites here.... a Hobie Phil Edwards noserider 70th anniversary modern reproduction with an original 9’10” Hobie Phil Edwards as well as an
9’1” Phil Edwards Honolulu...the other is Midget Farrelly 9’2” next to a Farrelly v-bottom (7’11”)
the new Noserider is a blast ride. Slow as molasses but you can stand on the tip and park....when you are old you might a well take all the help you can get!

N, That's the V 1. The V 2 did not have the red foam tail block. And a different lam. For me personally, the reason I much preferred the V 2 was that the rails were much less pinched than the V 1. Therefore less over all roll in the bottom.
The Jacobs Tak was very much the same as the V 2. Thanks for posting.

To be honest, I hated the V 1 Bing Takayama. I thought it was one of the worst surfboards design ever. I had the Jacobs Takayama and liked it much better. However, the Jacobs Takayama stepdeck model was the "bomb' and puts those other boards to shame in my opinion.

I have two Hansen boards: a Trestle and a Cardiff. I'm curious about the Superlight now! Other than the fact that I imagine it's lighter, what are the key characteristics?

They vary a bit, but great rocker, moderately pinched rails that are really functional, not too much belly so still fast... and of course lighter. I've ridden one in various San Diego conditions and spots, and really liked it!
