Those parallel railed, wide tailed logs...

Was out on my Osprey last night in generally agreed upon crummy conditions. Small onshore winds (rare on the south side), that gave everything a weird chop. I probably would have turned around except lots of longboarders coming in. With very little rocker I was worried I would not be having fun plowing my nose in. On my first wave I decided to stay way back on the board, further back than I usually do on this wave/this board, was shocked at the speed it maintained. I was caught up in the curl a few times and it just plowed through- definitely changed some perspective for me. I managed to grab some decent high runs, not a lot of turning but enough for people to say they were surprised by how well I could turn it. Last ride in, went right, different set up. Did not try to walk but stayed back. At one point I shifted my lead foot about 6" forward after being feet fairly close together- it was like I hit the accelerator pedal. This board never ceases to surprise me.

I have been really enjoying my 9'0 Singzer Demon. It's definitely a head turner; you can't go a session without someone asking what it is haha.
