I tried the 2016 version of this board today. It was 14x26. It was really fast and seemed plenty stable. He said he was selling it because it was just a flat water board and not great when it got bumpy. Not enough volume and the nose buried easily. He had stuck a little wind shield off a scooter ontop of the nose. It fitted perfect and apart from the duct tape looked like it should have been there. He said it makes a huge difference and doesn't burry the nose as much.
I would like to know if anyone has paddled one of these boards and how they compare speed wise to a more modern 14 ft all round board.
