I just got a 09 recoil 133 (not the comp) and have about 4hrs of riding on it so far.
I'm 65kg, intermediate rider and I spent the previous two summers riding the LF proof mostly and another slightly smaller beginner board. Transitioning to the recoil was painless though, took an hour or so to get comfy.
The conditions I was in was light chop. There's quite a bit of splash in the face, especially going up wind. It's pretty fast and easy to hold edge on toeside which I really like. I can edge it real good. It's actually a big enough board for me cause I can use it in real light winds, 10kts I can just stay up wind with it using a12m kite. I don't know if it's that fast, doesn't seem to be. Need more time on it I guess. There's plenty of rocker on it maybe that's part of the speed thing.
I'm pretty happy with it but the splash thing is annoying. Maybe I can reduce that in time by adjusting my stance a bit.
I'll add more as the season progresses, for what it's worth
