Got this to use when my vbowls were thumbing their nose at anything less than sheet glass, and it performs well in everything I've surfed it in. That said, classic case of overlap with other boards I have and surf more. Previous owner rode it maybe 5 times and decided he wasnt a midlength guy. I've ridden it the same amount of times. Deck has MINIMAL pressures. Bottom flawless. There is a single snackle in the resin bead at tail.
