I remember fluking into a big perfect barrel and inside Sunset, which made my trip to Hawaii and it was the second day!

For beach breaks Quiver Epoxy Parabolics, Poppa model. They all absolutely fly! And then I have a 7’3” yellow Quiver Quest gun for when it’s big and hollow.

I would go in and check out the models for yourself and chat it through with one of the shapers at a friendly surfboard factory like Quiver.
