I have to agree with what everyone is saying.

The Drop is definitely the best board out on the scene right now.

There is a reason why Jimmy Lewis is so well known.
He shaped that board.

I have both the 130 and the 136
I will never sell them.

Please explain me this. What board is good for flat water, choppy conditions, and waves? Does not really make any sense to me. What does a board's shape have to do with waves? I find that it all depends on your riding style. A board is ridden on its edge 99% of the time, so why would the shape of the bottom of the board have anything to do with its performance in waves, chop, or flat water?

man off course it influence if yuo have round shapes it will turn mutch better and quicker than another one with straight shapei f your edged it's also rounded it also easier, it's the same concept off the surf boards.


off course it influence that's why you have boards more suitable for waves than others

yeah, I would agree with you if you were talking about a surfboard, which would be 180cm at the most, and has three fins in the back, and is ridden either goofy foot or regular, and is not ridden on the edge all the time.

A twintip is 130 cm, with fins in the front and back, and has to be able to attack from both sides. Know what I mean? I hear a lot that a certain board is good in the waves, and also rides good on flat water. How is that?

I think that a board needs to fit the riders style......by the way, Liquid force has the best harness out on the market. good prices too.
