Big step up from a foamie, total different class to a bic or nsp or the like, this is a proper handshaped mini mal from a really great newquay based shop bilbo. This was my girlfriends board for the past couple of years, she learned all the fundamentals on it and is now riding a 9'6 singlefin and a 6'10 quad, which cover most bases at the minute, however she does still get this board in the water for the odd fun session as its got enough volume to get you into small waves, but its shaped with surfing in mind, it turns, it glides, its forgiving, its light...really nice board to ride!
Like the link says its had a few dings in the bottom, which weve dried out and repaired. Theyre repaired well, watertight and solid, however aethetically, they could be better. If they were, wed be asking for more money for the board, so if your not that bothered about the aesthetics, and want an nice, solid, watertight board (no yellowing of foam) have a look
