I had a 6'6 MP that I never really clicked with, but this 8'4 SYT was my daily driver for a long time. It holds a special place in my heart. I'm not sure why this model didn't get more love. Mine is the green one, being held by a gentleman who is not me. Here's what Rephullmen had to say:
I once had PHD's proto L-Spoon that Brian had shaped for scan in anticipation of Kirk offering longer boards than the 7'11 limit that Greg's shed had out of HI. Was magic. A more pronounced step deck than my current spoon. knifey rails. A friend took one wave on it and begged me to sell. Regretfully did. Still gets surfed at Bolsa regularly.
Also had this bizarre lil number for a minute. Interesting too-good-to-be-true story on that one.
