You got it buddy. It's definitely going to get some attention... it's 7" shorter than I am (I'm 6'3")

I just scored a set of Am2 tech flex futures for my five fin.

Buying another board next week, kinda torn. Do i go long and pick up a Walden Magic model or do I go short and buy a Hayden Shapes Hypto Krypto.
Just trying to not get a board too similar to the one I'm having shaped at the same time trying to not go too short and beyond my ability.

After taking a look at the Hayden that would be my choice. The Walden is going to be very much like your new fun shape. Boards like the Hayden make riding a board the length of a performance shortboard feel like a fun shape. It is actually very similar to my new board I am picking up tomorrow They generally have a lot of foam up front which makes getting into waves, and paddling in general, almost as easy as a board 1.5-2 ft longer. The reasonably flat nose and tail rocker makes it a great choice for those after work sessions where the wind has been on it too long and the shape is crap at best.

The concaves on mine are reversed from the Hayden though and I haven't ridden anything like that to give an experienced opinion on it. My new board is a Single/Double/Vee like my shortboards and my mini-long is just a Single/Double.

The first "short" board I rode after learning exclusively on a fun shape was a 6' 0" retro fish and I had a blast. A shorter board with that much foam is hard not to ride! You'll have fun and it will push you to grow and adapt.

I haven't ridden them yet but I'm going to try the PCs with the knub on the new board. I may pick up a set of Kellys later but I've been told I'll be very happy with these.

Picked up the new stick Friday night and rode all weekend. This is from Saturday. Surfed Rockslides at Sunset Cliff. The waves in the background were shoulder/head high and we were the only ones on them Ended up with the PC/GX combo and the knubster. Super snappy; so stoked!
