Was lucky to have had a go on this and had a total blast. Was good size Saunton and was a bit worried I would struggle on a shortboard but it got into the waves real easy. Easier than my 6'6 Piranha. Surfed like a dream too. No bogging, good speed and drive through the turns, im putting it down to the nice single concave thru the bottom and functional rear end (hard to see in those pics).
If I can get the money you know Im all over this J.
how much smaller are you thinking of going? would you be interested in a swap? I've got a 5"6 robot and am looking to change up to a 5"10. I got mine off Luke a couple of years ago .He was selling it on 2nd hand for some one who had bought it ,and not got on with the style ,so tradded it back in.Having put it next to other robots and rockets ,its slightly fatter(all over) and wider in the nose. I am looking to sell mine for 170 ,if that give you some idea of condition.only propper ding is 1 fin plug got knocked out. cheers Nic
Can also vouch for these boards, i have had my robot for nearly 3 years now. Despite being a bit shorter at 5'4 it is my go to board for any waves in england really, the deck is still rock solid and i don't see myself needing to replace it any time soon. Would definitely recommend one of these over any board off the shelf in the MSW store.
