I love these, I have two EPS a 7 ' 6" and an 8' 4". The EPS ones are light but the board is big and surfs very well as well as paddles well. Have had fun in small to triple over head . With the 5 Future boxes you are ready for all events. Good times and a must have for big guys who want to rip and not be limited to longboards.
I'm 6'3 and weigh anywhere from 255-280 (depending on donut consumption) and this board ROCKS with me on it. I have the 7'10 and it is absolutely the best! Easy to duck-dive, decent paddle speed, good wave catchability, and this sucker turns! If you are a big dude looking for something short, GET IT
