Thoughts on the Jamie board

Postby lindseym » Thu Oct 12, 2017 10:29 pm

Thinking about purchasing a North Jamie small board (130 x 39) for boosting and old school tricks. What do you all think about this board?
Thx

I'm currently using a 2014 Jaime 133/41.
Absolutely awesome board.

Also the 2015I have used a bit. And it's just as good.

Tested a 2017 model this summer. And even though it feels really different from the older models, it's still a great board.

The 2017 felt much looser on the water then the older ones.

Ok - thx for the feedback. Yes, what appealed to me about this board is its "grip" so my hope is that the 18 model has a solid bite on the water. I'm either thinking about getting the Jamie or a Radical 5.

16, 17 or 18 are all same in shape & construction I think. Bit heavy but still one of the better boards around imo.
