I live in Hawaii, and this has been my favorite board for everyday conditions. It has some of the HPSB feeling, carries good speed, and the low rocker is helpful with paddling into those smaller/weaker waves. I've pushed the board up to the 7 ft. range, and it feels surprisingly at home there as well. The board feels a little more suited for drawn out turns but is still quite responsive for the dimensions. I will mention that like any PU board, it does dent fairly easily.
All in all, this is a great, user-friendly board to have in your quiver for that 2-7 range.
