It took me a couple of sessions to figure this board out, and my experience with twins in the past has been so so, but this board has made me a believer! She paddles really well, and once you're locked in it's off to the races. I surfed it in 6-8 foot barreling beachbreak and it handles the tube well, and also allows you to get vertical on your turns (more so than other twins). I love the way it looks without a track pad, but make sure you wax it all the way down the fish tail. Sometimes you'll actually pivot off of those tail corners. The praise for Gary McNeil seems to be on the money here, and this board has me wanting to try other more high performance shapes, like the Entity.

Helps me catch waves even when conditions are subpar. This board is an everyday board you will catch all your daily waves on this. Perfect board if you are more bulky ir swole than the typical surfer due to the design if the board.

Super fun from the get go. Fast, loose, and goes on rail great. Best Performance twin I’ve ever ridden, Prefers clean conditions, doesn’t handle chatter well. Order volume over what you like bc they measure it before the take out the channel, at least that’s what they told me on my custom and from speaking with others with this board most say they wish it was slightly thicker for paddling. That’s the only gripe

I saw a 5’7” and knew a little smaller, an 1/8” thinner would be perfect. And I was correct at 5’6” x 20” x 2 3/8”. I weigh 158 lbs. and 2 3/8” thickness gives me the bite and pop, I like in a board. I could’ve gone thicker for more paddling power, but Gary has a fairly flat deck that carries the foam into a nice taper at the rail. It’s still a good paddler without being corky. I’m sure the biofoam has something to do with this. It surfs well, in solid overhead waves with push, and surprisingly rips in thigh high windswell. I use the Rasta twins, and they give good drive and nice release when you’re flaring and blowing the fins out. It took a few surfs, to get the board figured out. And that’s probably me, but once you do, it is fast, drivey and loose without any overly slidey feel. Although, you can do controlled tail slides out of a cutback. Lastly, the construction is really strong, light and the flax cloth looks so cool. People are always commenting on how beautiful it is. What more do you need? Thanks Gary, stoked on mine.

I've ridden over 70 boards all my life and the Entity is by far the best board I've ever ridden. Paddles easy, goes great in small surf and it's outstanding in bigger surf, I feel like everything I try to do comes out perfectly when I surf it. Addictive board.
