New Smik Bonza on order - this is mock up for colour choice - any actual photos of construction would be really good! Is it possible Scott? Thanks Steve

Looks f""king incredible, 9'5" by 32.5". Hopefully use the speed generated to create carving turns with weight transferance, rather than pressure thru knees and thighs. The Sunova One let me do this to some extent and healed the knees, this board intended to put me back into full surf mode and keep the knees functional.

Yeww! I can feel the stoke already. Did you get the lighter carbon construction?

Did not get the carbon deck, Did get carbon rails tho. The different fin setups look good too. Also asked for longer deck pad, to within abt 18" of the nose! Very competitive price for board delivered to the door - getting keen now!! Any pics please Scott?

Here are the two colours I liked - mockups help choose between " brown bomber " or the " grey ghost " Thanks to Scott for images!





The deckpad is full, like the grey image, Both are very good, but - grey it is!
Also testing fin setups for me - will have recommendations shortly - when some nice offshore's prevail. stoked yahoo hooray Steve

Looks epic! The pintail looks like a proper pintail and not the wider pin that the original photos were of?

Hopefully for me it will be the fuller version as shown on the Smik website. Easier on the knees? I will text Scott for some fotos - he said he would try to, no luck yet tho! Steve

stoked for ya stehar, great shape ever since i got my 9,11 insane pin tail gun i never looked back ,bigger wave the better

thruster is the go ...,mine has quad set up ,but with the pin and length i found the quad stiffens it up too much .

good call on the extra nose pad

It will be enjoyable testing different fin setups in all sorts of waves

When do you get it? Be good to hear which fin setups work for you.

Not sure when it will be finished - enjoying the build and communicating with Scotty - As well as his fin setups he has tried ( see blurb on website - under Bonzer board ), I am keen to try 5fins with the centre one being fairly small.

Just realised my different fins are " futures " so just asked Scotty, if it is not too late, please put in the right boxes - he will pass on info and it could happen? Here is hoping!!

I needn't worry on second thoughts, I think he is a fair dinkum bloke! Why would he send me a foto if it was stuffed. I am happy to go with it.

Asked Scott - quote " that is fully laminated and puttied, noticing how little putty is required compared to moulded boards. Anything out of "" b"" made in a mould has to have a ****e load of putty to get the board back to spec. " end quote
