This morning was refreshing. Smaller. But more shapely.

Love to listen to KZSC Santa Cruz every Tues. and Thurs. from 10-noon for some irie roots tunes.

The riddims and ambience make me feel like I have been transported back to that amazing area. Just got out of a kelpy fun reef session and pick up a breakfast burrito on the way back to a buddy's homebuilt trippy little cabin in the SC woods. Burn a couple down on the porch with the KZSC reggae show blastin'. Tweakin' boards. Repairin' dings. Talkin' smack. Chillin'. Getting' pumped up for the afternoon glassy surf. Ahhh, the life.

Thank you. I had the pleasure of riding it this morning, and it was a blast. Going into it I had no idea what to expect, because there's just so many dynamics that affect these boards, like the wide tail, the hull, the s-deck, and in this boards particular case, the vee. It was like riding a fish, and a hull, and being on a PCP high at the same time - You're looking at an addict. It performed unbelievably well in slabby, faster, hollower stuff.. This board just wants to move. I only went frontside on it a few times, and it was unreal. Most of my experience was backside, and it was still fun, unlike my hulls which I (do my best) to surf switch. Overall, it's definitely going to be one of the more-ridden boards in my quiver.
