awesome looking boards, loving the obligatory 'smashing a can on the deck pose' inclusion

Keen for a review once you have them dialed in.

all that curviness......look more like a small beach break board .......rather than a board designed for a bit of juice?

Lucky enough in last 2 days to get wet and to test my SMIK boards out.
I surf reef breaks mostly with the odd beach break, and when it came time to order my boards I new what I wanted. With Scotty Mckercher back ground he tweaked a few things and sent me in the right direction

When I ordered the orange board I wanted it to be fast turning and to hold big solid clean waves....
And It did just that, been on fast boards before but not a board that turns hard on the rail like this.I like doing big aggressive power turns , windsurfing background coming out , the harder I pushed it ,the the big the smile .It was a great day to get it on the water with a 4 to 5ft reef break .
Running a thruster set up and loving it. The drive and speed it's give me blows my mind.......
She's a keeper ..my go to board

With the Green machine I wanted a board that coud cover alot of conditions / wind / water movement and small to solid waves.
So the second day was it's big test.
Solid 3 to 4ft point break with abit of water movement and 10knts breeze . Very stable in your stance but when you shift back it's ready to dance. Couldn't believe it's speed it was keeping threw it's turns. Running as a quad set up and it suits me fine.
Very happy with the Green Machine ...what I wanted and covers alot of conditions


Very impressed in the quality and finish of both boards.....SMIK

And to all the people out there like me that have had alot of boards in all different shapes and sizes , and you know what you want in a board.
Custom SMIK and get what you want

The dimensions of your 8'2 seem to be pretty similar to the 'off the rack' 8'3 spitfire. What changes did you ask for and why?

The spitfire is 8'3 x 29.5 at 111L

The orange custom is different
8'2 x 29 at 112L
Pull in nose to give in a more continues curve
Different rocker line


Why.....
It's like buying a sports car,
