Home surf break is on the East Coast of the U.S., central coast of North Carolina. I have to say this is one of the most fun surfboards I've ever owned. I thought it was going to be a typical 8ft log: turn, trim, and cruise. BUT - that is not the case with the Solution by Chemistry. This board definitely has performance board characteristics. I'm able to do pretty much my shortboard maneuvers like round house cutbacks, floaters, ride the barrel, and even some side-slip 360's. I'm riding the Solution with Future Twin Fins with a stabilizer. Incredible float, lots of paddle power for early take offs, and tons of fun packed into the Solution by Chemsitry. Highly recommend this board especially for east coast surfers.
