I'm 92kg, and have tried this board over three good sessions now in underpowered and overpowered conditions and I give it 10/10 for performance, feel and especially light wind riding.
6/10 for the colours and graphics - I thought they were cool at first
but now I think they look loke a bleeding yellowfin tuna!!!
And that pic of New Zealand - I'll have to cover that with something for sure!
I like understated graphics/colours myself.
You can see the stringers and fin plugs thru the top layer which is a little cheap and nasty but nothing serious - the board is cheaper than most dollars wise.
The ride is silky smooth but not too slow which I really liked.
They have used a softer eva foam on the bottom layer of the footpads which in combination with the flex gives it a nice comfy ride.
Handles gusts like no other big board I have tried.
I fitted 50mm fins allround.
I want the small 122 now to replace my 130 wavetray!
