I picked up my newly glassed board from Foam EZ, and had my first surf on it this morning. The first few waves I went for were…awkward. But after adjusting my positioning a bit, I finally got a couple of fun waves. The board is unbelievably fast – it really takes off and goes into another gear when coming out of bottom turns. Maneuverability is a bit slow, but this board does what is was designed to – fly down the line and make wide, sweeping turns from the bottom to the top of the wave. It was a really fun session, and I am looking forward to working on dialing this board in! Here are some pictures of the finished product – I call it the “Magic Carpet”.
