Will get to use it first at Manzanita. Arrived here yesterday and it was sunny and windy. Should be the same today.

Nice, I have tried the new dice in 9 & 12 and I have to say they are amazing.

My 2014’s are suddenly feeling very old.

Enjoy!

Happy Birthday AJ! Hope you and the Pooches return tired and wind blown! Let us know how Manzo worked out!

I am curious, Dice vs Rebel vs Neo...how’d you pick?

Discuss!

Happy Birthday AJ! Oregon Coast is a great place to celebrate, looks like you should get some nice wind and waves to test out your presents, have fun!

Hey Chuck, Manzanita delivered 16-22 knots NW today with head-high waves. Bluebird skies. Waves were nice on low tide but when tide started coming in they got bigger and uncivilized. 6-8 kiters on the water.

Dice seems to have longer air time and steady looping.

It is big all right. Will need to get used to the power of 8 square meter again.
