Are there any recent reviews of this board? Are they good value for smaller surf? Do they last?

I got one the 7"6 134l in carbon goes good when high tide and the waves are fat when the waves get steeper on low tide I ride another board

Thanks QuickDraw, what size are you? I'm 81kg and thinking of going the 7'2" (116l) as I already have the 9'2" Fanatic pro wave at about 132l and am looking for something to play with in 1-2'.

Hi yeah Iam 5'8" and similar in weight aprox 80 kg, I think you should be ok with going to the 7 2 115l from your fanatic 135l on small glassy high tide surfs and work from there.
How confident are you in the waves on your 9 2 fanatic?

I predominantly ride a 8 foot 115l vex because it handles in the surf much better unless the waves are full. I only been suping a very short time but surfed most my life and have been out everyday since I had my boards.

Thank QuickDraw. Yeah I'm confident on my Fanatic in the surf now and like how it holds when the waves are sucking out but just tempted to consider something different for when it's 1-2 ft and fullish tide. I could also try for a smaller board like your for better manouverability as well, but obviously I would need a decent wave for that.
