Feedback from Miky:

“The Mentawais is a perfect trip to really try my boards because you could surf for hours and try so many different lines on the exact same waves. I think it’s still the best place in the world to improve your surfing. I really enjoyed surfing 4 fins. Small and bigger surf i was using 4 fins and loved them. It felt very fast and holding much for carving.”

“In small surf i was using those big base Buzz template fins in front and they were giving much more drive and i could push harder through my turns.”

“Its amazing how you can fit the curl because of the short length like 5’6” and the board holds like a 6’0”. It’s just an amazing feeling!”

“I loved the skate deck!!! It’s so comfortable for paddling and very reactive for turns. This is really something new and I loved it! It’s so stable in the barrel since your feet are stuck in the deck.”
