I have a 9'2 HP by John Oppito and soon I'll pick up my 11'0 HP by John Simon (from @Mr. Steve )As an update I just picked up a second Haley pin because i love the 7'6" so much. I now own a 7'10" as well. One thing sort of interesting that i am not sure if it has been discussed are differences in shape from different shapers. My 7'6" is John Simon and the 7'10" is Jacob Ellis. They have a different rail contour and a very different foil on the deck.
Also i would say the overall dimensions are not totally similar. I actually think the 7'6" is thicker at the stringer and carries more foam than the 7'10" which just seems thinner across the entire board. For sure the tail on the 7'10"is thinner.
Anyone else own 2 that are different shapers with different lines?
Almost seems like the shapers have the templates, ratios, and bottom contour direction and then do their own version.
One more thing people were mentioning about the rocker is that yes the nose rocker is quite flat, but there is a good amount of tail rocker, which i think is some of the secret sauce to this board. I find the flat front makes it paddle great but that tail is what makes it turn well as well as allowing for steeper drops without catching the nose.
Obviously you like the longer ones but I’ve been curious how the high 8’s/9s ride in these. What are you surfing that 9’2 in @Unleash My Log ? How’s it turning?
