I have had this board for almost 2 years now, and I can say it’s amazing to ride. I’m 6’, 200lbs, and 45 years young. My P Pheasant is 6’6” and I have surfed it all over S. California and most recently over seas on a trip to Tavarua. The board works great in 3-6’ local Newport/Huntington beach breaks, but really excels on a point break like trestles or up in Rincon/Malibu. It has great drive and turns on a dime for its size and fin setup. I have had it in bigger surf now at Cloudbreak and Wilks, 8-10’ faces, and the board performed flawlessly. I don’t know how it handles over that size, as I don’t surf above double over head anymore but I’m guessing it would still hold. The 6’6” is still able to duck dive just fine, but you are able to paddle it like a long board. Fast, fun and super responsive. Do yourself a favor and go get one.
