We have been hearing rave reviews on the S-winger since its conception in 2008. We have seen some great photographs as well. This testimonial is really backed up with a great photo! Chad Towersey is an exceptional Newport local and Surfline rep. He can, and has surfed a lot of great boards in his time, so the compliment he has given to the S-Winger is sincere and backed by hardcore experience.
I want to start by saying that this is the best board I have ever ridden. The first 2 sessions I rode it as a (5 fin). It was a little on the tight side, and I had trouble making tight turns in the pocket. I figured it would be a great way to approach a head high or over head point like Rincon.
My next step was trying it as a quad (4 fin). This proved to be the trick. Since yesterday I have rode it 10 times in punchy beach break conditions. Everyday the board offers new solutions to approaching the lip. It goes fast and goes on rail like no other board. It allows you the ability to slide out in the pocket or do full round- houses. One of the best aspects of this board, was the way it rode in the bowl. Like a magic carpet floating over foam bowl sections.
Bill you are the man!
Thanks to Joe Fosters and Chad for the photo.
