Nice refreshing message.
Thanks for that.
Although I will not buy one, you have tickled my curiosity and my next homemade will be along those lines.
regards
Nico

Outline of the RRD XXXs look same way - as Martin Vari joined we should see these shapes a bit more often !?
As the tips add to the total length I guess it´s hard to get the concept through the minimalist year 2004 though .. :wink:

I know it's a long write up and can't believe I done it but the board deserves it.
It is just so different and unless people give it a go they will never find out.
Seems like nobody ever talks about it.
Has anybody else got one?
We have got one on demo for the next two weeks, so if anyone fancies a go, then get in touch with http://www.oceanside.co.uk

I only need pleanty of beer to get "Monged", sounds a great board, not for the lard arse then !!

I have a stubbie mut that rides the waves fantastic, it would be interesting to try a loose soft board in the surf, totaly different from my 11cm fined mut, sounds as much fun.

Good review Sven, is the loose now a coffee table :wink:

just do it wrote:
The first few metres were a strange sensation of trying to find the grip and angle on which to ride the board. Funnily I didn’t go downwind on my first run even though I could have sworn I made no headway upwind. It just felt so loose.
In actual fact it is so great in anything choppy or wavy that it puts a huge smile on your face when everybody else is looking grim.

I felt like I could feel the water again and I could see what every bit of its shape does and why it is the way it is.

Now I felt like I wanted to slash into every wave bigger than three inches.



i`ve been out in underpowered conditions with the MONG thing for three times since i got it about a week ago (once on the P2 13m2 :wink: ) and i can assure that I agree with every word written above :o :o

shall let you know what i think of it when will FINALLY get some decent wind.. :evil: :evil:
