End of summer board sale time again. Got this Laird Surrator in the PVC carbon version from Exit Surf in Christchurch for $1500 including shipping. Very keen on trying it out....but first mission will be a flat water paddle to explore the stability

And you got the carbon version too! Amazing board--the 9'10 is great for bigger waves (shoulder high and bigger) and surfs smaller than its size. One guy I surf with moved from another brands' 8'10 board to the 9'10 Surrator and feels it is just as maneuverable and better in every way. I surf an 8'10 Surrator which is great for my 85kgs--they are a bit tippier than other boards their size due to the pronounced rocker and pulled in nose and tail but this makes it super maneuverable on the wave. Oh and word is that the 9'10 is the board that Laird shot the pier with...

Did a tiny flat water paddle in glassy conditions on river this morning. All good....seemed to paddle fast. Is 4 litres less volume than my sunova speed 9'2

Tried it out today at Makorori centre break......strong offshore and fast breaking hollow waves. No stability problems. The best board .I have tried.....fast and fun.....super easy to turn. Was almost high tide so didn't have to scowl at any rocks

Isn't it amazing!?!? Definitely more tuned to the conditions you describe than the Speed. Between the two I think you have a great quiver. In addition to my 8'10 Surrator, I have a 9'0 Laird Surfer and 7'4 Hypernut. If anyone in the US is looking for a Surrator, Laird Standup has a sale going on, on their website. Rumor is that Nidecker is dropping distribution of Laird. Would be a shame if noone picks up distribution as they are amazing boards.

Hi any more feedback on the surrator at all? A carbon 8'10 has come up locally and thinking of adding it to the quiver for hollower and bigger days when need a bit more float and rail line.
