I picked up a chubster 2nd hand myself back in Nov (lets furnish with a pic)
and have so far ridden it in mushy thigh high Saunton (would have struggled to ride anything other than a longboard that day I reckon) to clean chest high low tide beachy and it has been an absolute blast. Really fast and surprisingly for the width/thickness very loose as well, get down low and you can really get it on rail, and it loves to rise and fall as you cain it down the line! It's ousted my 5'10 Speed Dialer as my daily driver, in fact don't think I've ridden the dialer since I've had the Chub. At 5'2 it's sounds tiny and if I hadn't been able to man handle it in the shop and had just been looking at pics on the net I'm pretty sure I would have wanted a bigger one but that would have been a mistake I reckon. It's 23" wide and 3" thick so wider than some longboards and only just fits neatly under my arm (I'm about 6'0 - don't know my other dims or volume but I have quite thick rails and an ugly nose) but the rails and nose are quite foiled so the foam is only where you need it - in fact I think there's something on his website talking about that?
Anyhow - I've been looking at the Freakoid too - definite Tommo and Sim influences so would be interested to hear from anyone who has a go on one, for me it's probably between that and an Empire Lumus as my next board - something that will keep some of the glidey fast elements of the Chub but will offer a bit more performance.
