Fanatic joyrider 118x38 bought it 2004, had a lot of boards since then but this is still my preferd one. Flat, and light, very fast and snappy because of the rounded outline. Found a survior in Denmark so now i have 2
Gear: F'one Bandit 11 m2 2016 North Evo 9 m2 2017 and 12 m 2018 North rebel 11 m, 9 and 8 m2 2018 DSD intel stallion 5,2 Boardschmiede 135 x 40 , Shinn Bronq 2017, North x ride 2017 , SU2 pro series 2015
I had a Monk , pinnbot , and all the Bronq versions . Still have the bronq 2017 , a North x -ride 2017 and a SU 2 pro rider .
Heard a lot off good things about " boardschmiede " , did go to " Workum " for a test and bought one after that session .
It is better than everything i have owned ( better than all my shinn's , and i am a shinn fan )
It is a handmade carbon free ride board with a very special bottom design and flex .
They have tested it in " gleiten tv " and had a lot off good things to tell about this board .
My brother ( who also is riding shinn bronq and SU 2 pro ) had it about 0,5 hour to try and start searching immediate for a boardschmiede for him to replace one off his boards !
Vanguard: magic (rode it until I snapped the non kite rapidfire construction in half jumping it, it's now back together as my foil board)
Vader: although my current one is a little too big, ridden the correct sized and it's magic. Pair it with some of FW fins and you can easily do the steezy Stuey K style blow tail to slide turns, yet still carve big lines.
Evo: MAGIC. Even my 5'1" surfing version can catch some waves easier than my 5'1" Baked Potato that has 5L of volume more
Nano: magic (at least for regular surfing, never got a kite version)
Baked Potato: so much fun for small to even 5-6' waves for some reason.
DHD DX1 is a pretty damn fun board with wave that has some proper curl to it.
North Jaime was a fantastic right in the middle of just soft enough to freeride comfy but, stiff enough to unhook and pop well.
