Wow Tom that is awesome! No wonder your board is so good, you do it just like the pros. If GS see this he'll be shaking in his boots.

Josh, my camera sucks, those are the only ones that turned out. The others were framed well, but blurry.

Sean, you should try Tom's board out one day. It's 40 wide.
He can hold it down to whatever. At our size, I wouldn't get all too narrow with today's rails. Tom can make a recommendation though.

i rode the skywalker 130 x 40 all season and as far as i am concerned, its perfect for all wind conditions.

i believe the flexi board thats been getting rave review around here is the identical size, maybe 1cm difference if that..

i rode in 35 to 40+ in hood river and it was perfect..

anything too small might get squirley.. dont know..
i remember going out a few times on ebones tiny board.. i swear my heels and toes almost stuck over each edge..


the board that Tom made that I've seen is AMAZING..

Tom can you write up a post on all that you had to buy, prep and do to get the results you got?

yeah, but little boards are so much more fun...

idk why everyone likes the gigantic boards... seem to sluggish... but idk.. my opinion...
