Picked up my new custom 10'6" from Mick at Surefire today. It's a carbon/inegra construction, finished in my favourite colours. This is the third board Mick has done for me and if it's half as good as the other two, I'll be a happy man.
10'6" X 30" X 4.25
Weighs in at 9.6 kg without fins.

It's just an extra carbon patch for the standing area.

Tardy, this is the third board i have ordered through Mick. All three are in these colours. I couldn't be happier with his products. One day I'll put them all together for some pics and a review.

Nice one Z'man. Whats the $$ damage? What is the time frame from order to delivery? Do you have any IP on the colour scheme?

I'm after a performance mal style SUP to add to my quiver (hang 5, hang 10 etc), so look forward to your review. Just picked up the Atlantis Venom.......awesome piece of equipment

I ordered his last sub atomic 11'6 with the timber construction. Should be good fun for my first board. He did me a nice package deal with paddle etc to get me started too !!

Update!!

I've had a few surfs on it now. Conditions were pretty much the same each time. Clean 2ft plus rights.

The first couple of waves the board just felt right immediately. Just getting into the flow and gently letting the board float up and down the face standing in the middle of the deck. After a couple of those I took off a little deeper and used the tail to carve a few turns. With my foot on the tail pad the thin tail and rails were very responsive, making the big wide nose come around very easily. Swing weight was very low too. Once in a while a bigger set came through and I more often than not found myself a tad too deep. Take off and point down the line mid drop and pump rail to rail from mid deck again and the big girl accelerated surprisingly well. Make the fast section with ease before cutting back at the bowly section in front of the lifeguard tower. Trim the board again and being my stylish shuffle toward the nose I've mentioned before that my nose riding skills are nothing to be desired and nothing has changed. The wide nose and concave had me feeling very stable up there though.

A few more waves and I felt completely dialled in. Later and deeper takeoffs were made with ease and confidence. After each of my four surfs my face looked like this

Happy as a proverbial pig with this board. Mick has made me a happy SUPer 3 out of 3 times now.
