The SHURIKEN paddles well and catches waves like a summer groveler ... It moves and holds more like a high performance board ,,, Smooth down the line and precise tight turns on the pocket. If this board breaks or gets stolen today, I would re-order the exact same thing tomorrow.
Gav suggested the J-FORCE and right from the 1st surf the board blew my mind. It's super fast off the bat, feels loose without being too crazy, but when put on rail it holds amazingly well with great control and precision, it releases when needed, making my turns more radical than expected.
