“Where do you like to surf these models?”
i really enjoy more on reef breaks and points. i can surf the 2×4 6’0″ on an everyday basis in the canaries from slabs to fun powerful reefs.
i surf the mr. buzz everyday also when the waves are small, or fun little waves where my chick surfs.
also in points but work good in little slabs. same for the twins.
“What is it that you like or don’t like about any of these boards?”
the 6’0″ can feel a bit stiff at the drop sometimes. works a lot better in glassy/offshore conditions. but, is the fastest board ever! feels really confident. goes good for turn. (stretch should stop bothering putting the 5 fins set up…heheheh) if i had to choose one board to go on trip will be this one.
the Mr Buzz ,
really really user friendly. goes really good with those fins, got lots of flow.
sometimes feels a bit short on the back hand.
perfect for summertime but hold the rail in points also. good for carving.
here’s some fun follow cam footage of the 5’6″ mr. buzz sk8 carving:
the twin is a little devil.
it’s crazy fast! holds the rail in turn but also super loose in turn.
rare for a twin but good on the backhand.
check the video below to see Sancho laying rail on his 5’6″ pugged 2win.
“Are there any comparisons to other boards?”
no. riding those boards is like riding something different which makes it cool. it’s a different vibe.
i have your boards that i have been riding for the last 3 years. no other boards last that long!
“If you had the chance to change anything, what would it be?”
i’d put the factory in europe so it will be easier for me to get boards 🙂 then i could bug stretch all the time in person and talk to him about fins.
