Yes I rode it in some overhead heavy off shore winds a few days ago and I have had it out on smaller days. Typical of super light epoxy it was blowing me out of he back of waves. Waves were actually better for longer boards, but I caught a few before returning to the beach to get my nugget. Handles nice. Super loose in small waves and I'm a bigger surfer and it has no problems floating me. I don't think epoxy has as much momentums as poly, but I think this stringerless variety is a bit more lively in the water. I'll try and get some pics.
