Thinking about getting an 06 M8 board around 130-134 ,anyones thoughts and opinions on them would me greatly appreciated.
I HAVE A 115 M8 AND LOVE IT JUST ENOUGH FLEX AND ROCKER EASY UP WIND
BOARD GREAT ALLROUNDER HAVNT FOUND A BOARD YET TO MATCH IT AND HAVE TRIED A FEW
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
