Hey guys. I'm looking at buying the mistress and after any feedback on people that have one or ridden one. I'll be buying the 28" version and wondering how the stability is on them. I currently ride a 9'6 x 32" board with about 160L. I can comfortably catch waves, trim and turn down the face with ease on that board. I have attempted to nose ride on that board but my ability and the board itself is not allowing it to happen. I'm 85kg and my break often has some chop from the wind but also from backwash and side wash from the bank. If anybody has any feedback or advice I'm greatly appreciative.

I have the Mistress 10' X 28". Awesome board. I'm 103kgs and the 28" is better suited to the more advanced rider. It will not be as stable as your current 32" board. I'm sure being nearly 20kgs lighter than me will make a bit of a difference

Thanks Smash1. I am well aware that the stability is going to be no where near my current board. I was just after some info on whether the 28" would be too tippy for an intermediate surfer to advance his skills or am I probably not going to have much fun due to being too tippy. If the 32" was a 30" it would be a much easier decision.

You will find it tippy at first going from the 32 but at your weight you will adjust. I went from a 32 wide board down to the 9"6 x 28 Runway, I weigh in at 83kgs. The Mistress at 10ft will be prefect for you as an intermediate to advance, if you love nose riding as I do the mistress will be perfect...you will eventually get use to the 28 width, you won't regret it.

stay stoked

Thanks Greystroke. That's exactly the feedback that I was after. Someone who's done a similar step down in board size. Definitely more comfortable with my decision on the 28".

Vaughan, I've been riding a 28" mistress for a month or so now after riding the runway, and would sell my runway now no worries. I'm 93kgs and have only had it out in choppy conditions and first time i did fall off a bit and noticed it tippier. Second time didn't even worry me as like the boys above said, you adapt very quickly. Paddles really well and great for catching waves. Haven't been on the nose yet as the waves were crap bit still had fun.
Great board mate and you won't be disappointed.
Cheers Whitey

So I bought the 10ft28" mistress last weekend from the awesome team at TSBW. Great price for a quality piece of kit. Was so glad I went this way and not spending big money on a big name board. Took it out this morning for its maiden voyage and whoa. So much fun. Definitely noticed the decrease in width. Lucky the waters beautiful at the moment. So easy to turn when on the back foot and even managed to spend some time up on the nose. Didn't get the toes over the edge but I can see that it's a board that's going to let that happen. Can't wait to get back out there in the morning. Super stoked with the Mistress.

I have one of the original Prototype Mistress boards and it is a keeper. Been on it since november and ride it more than my other shorter Sups as it covers more wave types and conditions.

If you like cross stepping and nose riding then you will love it. Easy board to ride and chuck around.

I am 87kgs and ride the 28'' version .

Enjoy

I would like a Mistress board but after my runaway issues I'm not sure now.

Not a smart arse question but how does the mistress compare to the fanatic hrs or sunova that I own, super keen on a 10' and love the price love the pin tail and the scooped nose I have ridden the jp 10' the stylemaster also the 10' nut all fantastic boards the stylemaster probably being my favourite but I can sneak a mistress in through afterpay and the real mistress wouldn't have to know just after some feedback about the plastic breather and mashing the deck with my 100+ kg heels as the fanatic pure is bulletproof and $1350 cheers but not worth the cold nights in winter

Hey Krist. I haven't ridden any of the boards that you mentioned so I can't compare them with the Mistress. What I can say is that it's a great board. Turns really easy from up the back and makes walking up to the nose a breeze even for my gumby feet. I have noticed a few compressions on the deck from my feet but hey, it's under a $1000. I was weighing up buying a Stylemaster or Style lord but I just couldn't justify the cost compared to the Mistress. Especially after hearing nothing but good reports about them. Took a bit to get used to the decrease in width but I suppose that's a sacrifice for a board that surfs well and doesn't feel like an oil tanker.
