Ok to get back to the posts origins
Surfed the Lil darlin for a few waves at the weekend when I could pry it off the Mrs
Really easy to compare with the 9'3 C4 SV as the Lil Darlin has all the characteristics of a long board and the C4 has all the characteristics of a short board both really stable, easy to catch waves and super responsive. The Lil darlin just begs to be walked and has a really great feel on the waves while the C4 just wants to be thrown around allot more and has allot more speed. Horses for courses really whether you prefer long board or short board style.
BTW That LSD looks Great Standupper!
