    Ian and his team custom made me this beautiful tuna 1 year ago to the exact specs that I had asked for. I am a quebec land locked river surfer so I needed a board that could be put threw a lot compared to the ocean. we frequently ride the same standing wave for long periods of time at times up to 1 hour. with wood and ice floating by, our boards take a beating so it had to be strong. Ian came threw, with extra float due to less buoyancy of fresh water and concave to double I asked for I feel like I am in the drivers seat of a Ferrari. 1 year later there are no pressure dings on the deck and the fin boxes are intact even after broken fins and 60 plus sessions surfing swimming in and out of our raging rivers lined with rocks and logs. with his willingness to listen and tweak his existing models to your specs it makes for an excellent shaper to rider rapport. Did I mention it a real wall hanger, but it wont be hanging on no wall. this board is magic.
    thanks to ian and his team
