I demo'd a few race boards and ended up buying this one basically on it's looks. Fortunately, it was a good decision. Stable at 27-1/2" wide, good speed although it's hard to quantify speed in constantly changing conditions, nose rocker keeps the board from pearling while maintaining maximum waterline. Good volume placement with wide tail and not excessive volume in the nose. A little heavier than advertised at 29 lbs. The quality of the board and graphics is readily apparent. I won three of my last five races in rec. 50+ class. No regrets.
Aesthetics, lift handle, builds confidence.
Could be a bit lighter. It's advertised at 25 lbs., weighs 29 lbs.
Racing, exercise and touring.
