This is my “step up” board for when we get some serious waves. I’ve also ridden it in the Mentawais & Bali & it feels so good under my feet when there’s a bit of size & power in the waves. The best thing about it is I can get on this board after not riding it for months & it doesn’t take any time to get used to the extra length. It’s an easy transition from my allrounder , the JS Bullseye to the Raging Bull. Both boards are Occy models so they have a similar feel. The only thing they can’t do is make me surf as good as Occy.
