I have been really stoked on The Keg. I have previously had the '84 and Blade. The Keg is just a great all around board for Southern California. It's flatter through the mid to front half of the board, which I wasn't expecting. This makes it paddle well and easy to grovel on. There's some lift in the tail because it gets up to the top of the wave quickly and feels especially good on the backhand. I really like the fuller outline as I'm about 200lbs. I would highly recommend this board.
