Come on all of you 8'6" Super Frank Lean owners, where are you?

I am not sure there are many. This is one of the most seriously underrated boards out there, across every measure, but for some reason other brands have a much higher profile. I am so glad I found it!

I agree had the 8' for 12 months now still blows me away .

while i havent ridden the SF-I did make the choice to go JP 8' Surf Wide at 123 l Vs the Vs the nearly identical JL SF Wide at 8 foot.

I have a 9'1 supertech I love for big swells when im in full rubber on the east coast of the US. I found a JP that was significantly cheaper than than the SF and i kinda wished I went with the JL.

#1- Handle. the JP has a teeny Ledge handle...doesnt work with gloves
#2- As mentioned- LOTS of yaw. really suprising. Tippiest >120l board I have ever had - really suprising
#3 On wave- good fun- not overwhelming- but as I expected.

If the JL is more stable at rest or to paddle and has I know has the JL handle- I would trade in a heartbeat even not suring it- as I know the shape works.

It sure does, looks like that shape rips with the extra tail rocker. I'd like one, how long can I take it for a demo?
