Just a short note to let you know that I had a primo session this past weekend on da Monsta Jumbo Jet!
In chest-to-head-high waves with less push, I was able to crank up the speed off the bottom turns to set-up for tight top turns. During round-house cut-backs, the board held edge on the inside rail and drew one smooth, continuous line (with no loss of speed) through the arcs. With the large twin fins + small trailer fin set-up, it had heaps of drive and was loose enough to free up the tail for power-slide cutbacks.
In head-to-over-head-high waves with more push and a steeper wave face, max speed was almost instantaneous and carried all the way through bottom turns, top turns, and redirections. After the redirections, it took no more than 1-2 pumps to get the board flying again for the next round of maneuvers.
Once up and riding, the board felt much smaller and lighter than its 6’4″ dimensions. I liken it to a slightly scaled-up version of my 6’0″ Hideo.
Again, another magic board creation from Todd!
