This board gets into waves super easily because of that super round nose. The down the line speed and drive was ridiculous which is pretty good over here on the east coast where the waves are fast and runny. This board is most fun because of the versatility, you can ride it 2+1, single, twin, quad and thruster which made it like five boards in one. Their is a lot of tail rocker which makes it super maneuverable under your back foot. One of my favorite boards in the quiver because it handles waves of all different shapes and sizes well.
