yea i had the 11 footer thought it would be good coming from a longboard background, but i was wrong, it was a bit of a pig. but thats just my personal opinion someone else may think its a gr8 board.
I have paddled both the 10'6 and 11' in flat water only and both come across as great boards. High quality and tough as. I reckon the 10'6 would be good in the surf, slightly different lines and looks like it would go OK
