Hi Team

Does anyone have any intel on whether surfboard warehouse will be bringing in more stock of their surf shapes?
Getting Info from them have been challenging.
I would love to get my hands on a carbon evoke 8'6 or vex profusion 9 if anyone has one they want to let go?

I doubt they'll do the Vex again, as the original guys sold the business...

They've done cheaper builds on the Evoke's (no carbon) for a couple of years now

You may be able to find an Evoke at Decathlon, they stock some TSBW boards now. I've seen Evoke 10' in the one near me, never seen them stock the smaller sizes.

I asked the question a few days ago on their website chat - the response was that they are expecting new shipment of evoke and vex to land soon. The NZ TSBW still has evoke of different sizes, but no vex - no idea what the shopping would be!

Awesome.... I must admit - since they made the Mana, I didn't think the Vex would get another run!

That's awesome. Thanks for the info
I havnt had a response to the email I sent them

Hope they are getting stock to AUS

I have an old 9'2 carbon evoke about 4-5 years old. Bashed the heck out of it and it's still going strong just a bit big

Had a large Vex years ago - epic board.

Just bought and had first surf on Mano 9.0 - like a cut snake on the face and reasonably stable.

Only scored it as I popped into the local SBWH and there it was, was nothing online at the time.

Good to hear some news about how the Mano guys. Was tossing up between that and the 8'6 evoke a few years ago, went with the cautious approach. Have loved the 8'6 evoke but always wondered how the Mano went.

Had a couple of session on the new whip - one in solid waves and one in small mushy waves. For me at 80-83kg it is just the right dims for an allrounder - can handle some bumps and chops and has good glide getting into the waves and once on the face it is really sharp and fast, have only had it as a quad so far. It is quite sporty for the dims and a good surf shape.

I steered clear of the Evoke as it just looks really wide and chunky, even watching the bloke from TSBW riding it, they look like a really big board to throw around but thats just my opinion.

Have had an issue with the rear deck pad lifting and then ripping off on my first session but the guys over here are taking care of it for me in getting another one in and replacing, they also had one of the fin boxes replaced as someone in the factory (assuming) put in a random size screw and split the section between the slot and the screw hole ( gooch ) I only mention this to give an all-round review so far.

Overall so far the Mano is a ripper of a board and the small issues that have come up have been dealt with well.

Yeah the evoke is wide and chunky, which is why I could go down to 8'6 as a step-down from my first board which was an AllWave 9'5. It is now limiting my progression in some aspects so keeping a lookout for the next board.
Same rear tail-pad lifting issue after about 6 months. Bang for buck has been outstanding though.
