Custom Squashed Skate Tri for Alex

 6/4/12 Update from Alex

Hi Wayne,
It's late I know, but I thought I should send this email today before another crazy week prevents me to do so. I took the board for a spin today, the waves were crap and I cold only go for an hour but I just couldn't wait. (Beside if a daily driver does well in crap surf, it'll go well no matter what, right?)
Wayne, you made me a great board. I am beyond stoked. The volume is spot on. It's obviously way less volume than any of my other boards, and yet it doesn't feel like it. It's so nice to get into the water and realize that buoyancy is not gonna be an issue. It paddles great, and catches waves VERY easily. I was really surprised by how much the board want to go. And then the speed just completely took me by surprised. It just flew, and from first bottom turn everything felt really good. The board is very maneuverable yet set fast, yet very stable. You've stricken the perfect balance with that one. It's exactly what I wanted to be and I'm sure it will be more. I think I'm gonna retire my fish for the next few months. I cannot wait to try this one in any conditions. This is going to motivate me to get out more often.

Thanks you so much Wayne. I. AM. STOCKED!!!! : ))))
Cheers, and have a good week,


Alex, Thanks for the update! Enjoy the board in good health! Wayne
