Hi all. Very nice board, I still own a Naish Mutant 4,10 and this one seems pretty good. Personally in order to jibe I would choose a surfboard pads/straps; nevertheless I think it will work fine. Well done!

nice board... how far back are your feet from center? Do you ride right foot forward?

i've got an offset adjustment from 4cm to 8cm.

8cm offset is very surf feel on surf end but quite squirrely backwards in TT mode. Id use that setting if i want to just survive in going out TT abd roost coming in on the wave. so this would be a more down the line setting

4cm offset feels more solid and TT like it is a good setting for high speed boost one way out and ok wave performance coming back in. this is the setting i'm enjoying the most.

i'm yet to try the 6cm offset position.

Hi. Happy to hear that your board works fine. I still enijoy my Naish mutant very much. A Mutant board is a way faster than a twin tip, it can jump higher and not only, It can ride waves like a small surfboard. Here's a video and some pics of it:

How big is that board? I have a mako king but it feels so big... Usually just use my 140 mako but I wish I could offset the bindings. I Guess you can on the newer models.
