    that's interesting Chilly, I've always loved the feel of the timber tek's, since they feel so solid...would've never guessed all that stuff was going on underneath

    I’ve had several TimberTek's, and they’ve been the most bullet proof surfboards I’ve e ever had.

    That's what my buddy always said, but he later discovered otherwise. Not sure if this is the norm or not, but that's what his ding guy related to him.

    Not sure how much I can/should say here so I'll send you a PM or text. But our friends in carp are pretty close to releasing exactly what you're asking for. I've seen the prototypes at rest and in action from Lowers this summer to Rincon last week (Devon was shredding his in the cove along with sage and others) and they are really fun looking. Was offered the chance to try one but haven't gotten to it yet. It's a midlength that is designed to surf more in the pocket than the designs we usually talk about here. Check recent insta posts from Ando, Devon (lead tester/design influencer), and others to get more info and visuals.

    Seaside seems like a really good shape - both as a small fish and larger middie. But, like many others here, I'd choose a local builder over firewire.

    If you are really into the Seaside, you could always get a custom poly board from Machado, no? (If you do, though, maybe ask them if they install the fin boxes before or after glassing...I saw insta clip that undermined my confidence in build quality over there.)

    Thanks for the input! I have a couple of Mitsven’s and may get him to make me a quad long fish in the 6’10 to 7’0” range. While I always like supporting local shapers I do ride stock boards as well and those particular shapes caught my eye for their particular outline.
