me, love it!
adittedly i'm a bit more slective in winter, but in summer if i've spent fuel to get to the beach i literally will try anything and generally i have a good time.
also if its sub knee high and clean, bellyboard/paipo time and more barrels in one sesh than you deserve in a lifetime. if its gnarly on shore and white water to the scillies, muck about old school style in the soup. so much fun with my kid on days like that inventing stupid tricks. amazing boards, amazing fun. anyone who dismisses humble ply has no idea what they are missing out on.
best bit of all, junk surf, whatever its like, is pretty much always empty surf. and in peak season cornwall, thats prescious.
anyhow, hav'nt got a SP myself, but very sure i'm going to look for a used 5ft6 for this summer. they intrigue me, got to be worth a go i think.
