I have had a 2005 vintage LF mlf 122cm board that I got free with a kite purchase. For years I tried to sell or give this board away as a grom board but had no takers so the board was never ridden. Last summer I decided to try it myself in overpowered choppy conditions, I'm 185lbs, 83kg. Presto! It is the best chop board I have ever ridden. I found that I could power through chop with amazing comfort. This board has a double concave underneath, so it has a ridge in the center like a v-hull boat. And it has large rocker, especially for a small board, so it carves great turns. It also has some straight ridges that lead into the fins area (much like the newest boards that can be ridden finless). At high speed this board throws a unique wake which is sort of half atomized spray, maybe from the sheet of water hitting these straight ridges underneath. This board must be powered for sure, but now for me its a keeper!
Sorry Alden , I thought we were discussing Directional race and or free race boards here, and they are a complete different story than twintip boards, which I assume you are talking about?
