Just a quick report from the Netherlands...
The UDT model works fine! Especially for the Dutch sloppy waves. I use it on the smaller days.
We have had a few really good mat days this summer and i mostly use the new XL model. The hybrid deck of the new XL model works so good. You can get grip on it and also replace your body very easy.
The last three weeks we haven't had any waves so i'm pretty full of energy and waiting for waves! Fall is coming so for Holland that means waves!
I'm so stoked to be a matsurfer. Its hard for a Dutchy to explane that in proper English.
I hope everything is fine with you.
All the best and speak to you soon.
