My M8 is about 2 years old and very abused.

I get asked about once a fortnight if I want to sell it. Dah Nah!

It pops fantastic. carves as smooth as I can, and is very friendly to my knees. Plus cranks upwind and I have heaps of fun in the surf.

It gets started on sand and I ride til it runs aground then step off, I'm Old and Lazy. It should go thru a couple of fins a week, but still is on original set.

The bottom is as good condition as any one summer board out there.

the 06's became a little more directed at waveriding and the 07's are supposed to be very focused on waves while still retaining top notch pop for flat water.

How's that for a biased view?

Biase or not. I appreciate both your views and will be taking them both very seriously.

Thanks for taking the time to help
