So, I can find next to no info on this board and how it rides.
I'm assuming it's crap since, A: no one has any reviews on it, and B: they only made it for one season and you can find them for crazy prices.
Anyone have a ride on this thing? Is it another "Octane" (crap)?

I brought one down to Hatteras last fall and rode it on a couple of LW days. Its the same size as the Airush Sector 60 without the big fins. It planes up quick and is very easy to ride. I rode it strapless and it was super easy to jibe. I did not find it a great turner but you can see that just looking at the shape.
We have sold several of them but honestly, an Airush Sector is way more efficient and faster = more fun in lighter wind. The price is higher for the Sector, but if its a LW board your looking for it's a great option. The new Airush Slayer is also another option and I cant wait for that to arrive. If you can find a swacker cheap and your a bigger guy, then it might be something to consider if your looking for an inexpensive option.

The Slingshot Dialer is a better option than the Swacker.
