Well i'm using the HC125 from loose and the board rocks, i can plane early since the board is wide (i think 40cm).
It's a tecnical board as all the short board are, but i love it. It comes with 6 fins but i took 2 out i prefer to hold the power on the sharp rail. And get a board that slides better.

I have been using the swt 110x38. This board is GREAT for all around condition for a 70KG or lighter: gusty, chop,light, strong, big waves... whatever... I ride this swt 110 without any fins. Fins only slow you down.

Once you ride short board, you will never go back to longer board.

here is a video clip of me riding another board 91cmx36cm no fins....

And what about the Naish Stubby 115 and 127?
Any review?
