Looks a beaut Mr Hill, personally i find latex restrictive
I would be interested in your stylelord's dimensions and construction type? Did you go the woody (following your initial theme)?
If so, is it stronger or more durable and what is the additional weight vis a vis carbon?

Not the woody carbon 10 x 29 @130l for my 105kg. Scotty has described it as sweetly light

I think the woody construction is heavier and a bit more durable.

Nice looking long board Hilly. I can see my new "longer" board sitting in the silver bag.

Looks better in the flesh and out of its condom. Rail saver and hexatraction applied.













Will have fun playing with fins. Came with a nice single which I will use on smaller days and will alternate quad and thruster to see which is better on bigger days. If it stops blowing 35 knots straight onshore might have a paddle.

Took it for a fang today in onshore pus.
Positives - light, easy to paddle into a head wind due to length, handled a few steep drops well, got a cover up, looks the shizzle
Negatives - dark colour shows my less than stellar job of attaching rail tape and hexatraction, quad set up was less than ideal apart from on a couple of bomb sets, not as stable as the demo which was to be expected
Interesting - more nose rocker than I was expecting but trimmed well, hard to whip around due to quad set up so more work needed.

Overall verdict - noice









I think Zara had the most fun

Great shot, apart from quads any other tweaks to the standard carbon 29 width

Not that I am aware of. Feels way thinner than the demo I paddled, but that was the wood construction. Scotty would have more info.
