Yep! Surfed mine the other day! I am amazed by the speed it generates and how it is nimble enough to throw around on redirects. I wonder if this is what my shortboard friends get to experience on the daily?

Anybody else dry their boards on the local shrubbery?

I’ve been riding these two exclusively the last couple of weeks.

Micro ant and Puerto Rico. Both 8’. So fun, yet different.

PR provides more drive out of turns and feels more predictable. Easy to redirect with confidence. Feels great, all the time.

Microant is more wily, hot rod vibes but personally, I like the wide point back feeling more with this one when you push it through turns. It also is glassed a bit heavier so it carries momentum better through chop/sections. The MA also opens up for some cheater 5’s here and there but that’s a no-no so far on the PR.

They both hum perfectly at speed. Stoked on Hilbers!

Anybody else ridden both? Thoughts?

Jon, when I saw PR at BJs' it was rolled vee with no edge on tail while MA had edge and seemed like vee panel out just like HG. By definition, edge should offer more definition and predictability so it's confusing to have more drive and predictability with the PR :p
But! I hear you because my 9'1" Ant is sooo drivey and very predictable with zero edge. All roll and simple as it can get. Something about Brians' secret spice... Wizard magic...
