Hmmm?? Jester... the fool, buffoon, clown
"Hyperactive, twitchy, and lively". Not qualities I would look for in a surfboard for myself. Makes it sound like it's got a mind of its own and hard to control.
I haven't tried the Jester, but I had 2 sessions on the Duke. Kept swapping with my ride back to back for comparison. In case I was just imagining things. It was not my cup of tea.
In thruster mode, the board felt huge for a 5'4. Slow, like it needed more kite or more wind. It liked longer drawn out carves. Not a bad thing, it did those great. But it was exhausting trying snap it around on tighter turns. Like I was too light for it. Then out of nowhere, it would do this annoying rail to rail shimmy thing, knocking me off balance. I was not easy to pop it off the water too. It did go upwind well and it's super smooth in chop as advertised.
It was more fun throwing it around in quad mode but still has those other issues.
I buckled an original Mako Surf (similar construction) in 13 months. That one was not bombproof.
