I keep breaking my boards. The Pit sounds like the one for me. Any tests?
PS: i ride strapped, hard, jump, powered ... also got reef in the way. Needs to be able to take a few hits.
Thanx

Also, if you have one for sale, pm me

I'm also interested in the pit. Anyone know if it has lot of rocker or if it's flatter?

It has a very good amount rocker. Sorry, I don't have those measurements right now.. Most rocker in the line up next to the Tyrant. Great for deep barrel swell or very pronounced lips.. Very pivotal on the smack and easy to link up carves on fast deep barrel waves... The most performance board in the series and the board Patrick Rebstock rides the most... Indo board!

ThePit has good planning power and very quick in total speed and responsiveness. Great for anything above waist high to overhead+ waves.. Double over head and bigger, I would recommend the 6'1" Tyrant for stability in nuke those insane conditions.

5'11" is where its at! :thumb:

Ah ok thanks, so in the lineup then, if I understand you correctly... The Celeritas is the flattest rocker and is best for small mushy waves, The Pit has slightly more rocker and is better for waist to head high surf, and the tyrant has the most rocker and sites for head high plus waves. Is that correct?
