terrible service for lost...
terrible service for lost fin, over 6 weeks and management is aggressive and rude. They are just as rude to the outdoor store I bought it from as well telling them BS excuses and promises not met.
Broken and unfixable thanks to terrible service
Fantastic allround one quiver board. I love this board. I'll have it for life. will do everything from really punchy waves to mush. Just change the fins accordingly.
Nose doesn't go through white water aswell as my surf music but otherwise nothing
I use it in mush and less punchy waves or when it's messed up. My wife uses it as a first board as it's very stable.
I ride a 2012 10' 6" model...
I ride a 2012 10' 6" model and it's by far the best SUP I've ridden. I also have a 9' 6" Coreban Performer which is fun, but the Laird is my hotdoggin' board. I love walking the board. It nose rides well, cutbacks better than I ever thought a 10' 6" would and handles steep/late drop-ins with no problem. My friends say I'm ripping on it - I feel I'm riding well.
It's easy to catch waves on and rides like a high performance longboard. As a quad it does everything well in waves from 2' to 6' faces. I love using the paddle to make controlled side slides on bottom turns. Many of my friends have 8' something SUP's and their turning radius is a little tighter, but my wave count is usually a bit higher. I've ridden it just about every day for the past 4 months and due to the surftech construction it still looks like new.
I really have no cons about my Laird. I recommend this board to any SUP'er who wants to surf longboard style.
I surf it. It could be used in flat water or touring, but I love surfing on it.
