As much as it pains me to say - this board was money today. I don't like being part of the herd, and have bucked this trend, but am fair enough to admit it really rode amazing. Stomach to chest high glassy A frames this morning and it did no wrong. Easy in, quick to find the pocket, slight ankle adjustments and the board redirected. Fark me. Stoked
Wait. You ordered a Bullet but got a grade Vaquero?

Picked up this 10’10” Tanner Scout yesterday! Hope it rides as good as it looks.

Came with a 9.75” A-flex which seems like the wrong fin (I’m not a fan of them even in my hulls). What do you all recommend? Fins I have at the ready to try - 9”/10”PHD, 9”/10” Liddle, 9.75” 4A, 9.5” California classic, 9.75” drd4 Boris, 9.25” drd4 JT karma, 8.5” drd4 el cap.

Thinking 8.5” skip maybe? Or a 4c?
8.5 Skip

Another fish to the collection. Shaped by Steve S. “Scat” 5’10x22x2.75. He got a little weird with the airbrush horn things I’m usually a very simple color guy but the outline is pure old San Diego/Sunset cliff fish. He also made me some mahogany keels.

Very cool mashup and nice blank choice. I imagine this will work ridiculously well.

Also excited boards finishing up means mine should be done in the next week.
Yup, just going for a really reliable mid length that will accommodate a variety of conditions, and progression of style. Nothing experimental. Just proven elements where I can have a go-to foundation to experiment and progress with.
