I test today my new smallest board: a 5'8" modern fish (a full deep concave) SWOP in remplacement on my 6'0" Maurice Cole. I was pretty worried to test it (would the board as good as the old one ?)

Check the result first: a big thanks to Fredo. It's my most beautiful board ever. I didn't put any pad in order to not hide the drawing. And you know what ? I discover that a pad isn't necessary: I can surf as good with only wax.


The surf: ouch. It was low tide and it was just a right slab ! Not the best day to test a new board. I was backside to complicate my test.

Hard to take, very steepy, short but sooooo powerful, waves were just a square !

And the test was passed: the board was better than the previous one (same outline and volume but 2 inches shorter and smaller fins thanks to the advice of SWOP). It turns faster with a lot of reactivity. I managed to surf backside square waves. I didn't catched any tube because I didn't the level to....

After Teiki came in the water: OUCH, tubes, 1,20 high aerial. I have room for improvement.
