The last of a batch of 6 boards is ready for me to mark out the fins. It is a 7ft x 23" Hydro Simmons for big Dave Jackson from Coolum Beach on the Sunshine Coast. I have created a fair bit of shavings in the process of cleaning them up.

Ride report - 3 days, 5 surfs with 10 hours in the water, surfing generally off-shore an occasional cross-offshore in 2' to 4' waves, and I haven't stopped smiling. Thanks Grant, this board is a treat and the dimensions are perfect for my needs here at Goolwa. It will be my go-to board now in these conditions. It picks up waves very easily, generates speed at a blink and is very manoeuvrable. I'm presently riding the board as a tri-fin using Future "Solus" fins, and will eventually try a quad set-up.
I am looking forward to giving it a go in bigger surf, but the intended purpose was for surf I've spent the last few days in.
This board has certainly created a lot of interest at the beach (so to the board bag). I'll give you further up-dates in weeks to come.
Grant you have "nailed it".
