maiden voyage on the bing feral pig!!!!!

i slipped out after work this avo and slid a quick 10 (miniature) waves on my bing feral pig. slid is the right word in this case. this board seems frictionless. i am so stoked on how this board feels so free in the water, yet is stable to walk on. it feels as if my other boards have been dragging kelp. i always thought if a board was stable to walk toward the nose on, it wasn't easily maneuvered. well, that doesn't seem to be the case. matt has such a great understanding of fin to tail width ratio. this board feels AMAZING in the water.
sure... it was only a quick session in thigh high pier dumpers...but i felt this thing! to say i am excited about pushing it through all conditions is like saying there is water in the ocean. i want to sleep with this the ocean.
my wife shot these quick little waves on her phone while she was holding our one year old daughter. it was the first time my daughter saw me surf. she didn't really know what she was looking at! after the sesh, we had a nice meal on the pier. that is how its DONE!
