I bought an expensive board that was claimed by some to be a good nose rider.( I didn't trial it) My perception is while the board is well made and has lots of positives I don't consider it a good nose rider. (I can noseride) The Atlantis Runway appeals due to posts on seabreeze that extol its noseriding ability. Can I get any further feedback from Atlantis owners please.

Hi elbeau i had the 9.6 Runway and i can confirm it nose rides very well,i moved mine on only as ihad one too many boards and not much storage for them.I kinda regret selling it now as the value is fantastic but i was still going to the speeds on most occasions as i find those can nose ride quite well.I would say if you have some choice noseriding waves go for it, a really affordable solid performer.

Thank you for the feedback. I have bought a Runway and I'm staggered at how good a board it is compared to the five other boards I have owned. When the "Lord of The Rings" was first released it was underestimated by critics. It wasn't until many years later that people finally recognised how well crafted the story was. The Atlantis Runway may well have a similar fate. An undiscovered classic that I suggest will in years to come, be spoken of in revered terms.
NB "Five other boards" Starboard 12', Laird 12', Starboard 11 2", Starboard 10'5" Drive, Sunova 10" Style.
