Graham Dunn from Victoria, Australia says:

Don't be scared to go the 9'6" longer version GSI fireball model its friken amazing. Im 95 k's and I've surfed this thing from 6" running rights to 5 to 6' steam rolling lefts at Woolamia. Don't waste your money on anything else! Ive ordered a custom original as well from the boys at Byron. Bob is the man! I've tried other shapers boards but none measure up to the masters designs. Like I said don't be afraid to go up in length to the 9'6" trust me!!!!

Tom Mitchell from RI, USA says:

This board is very fast. After a few sessions, getting the center fin just right, she responds very well. It excells in chest plus surf. Im pleased with my purchace. I don't use it much with knee to waist. Prefer less rocker. Lots of foam in the 3 and 1/8 thickness. Would have liked to tried a little thinner, maybe a custom for the next board. The board is overall light. Hacks off the top are no problem . The width of 23, I thought would have hampered some performance. But the round pin does just fine pulling the nose around. As far as the noseriding goes, I will move forward for trim speed and have snuck a couple cheater fives in. However, I'd rather slash and burn off the tail with this design.

Paul from CT, USA says:

I've surfed at least 6 different longboard shapes, and this one is my favorite by far. Great paddle, like having an extra gear when I need it over other similar-sized shapes. Plenty stable, and it turns seemingly just by thinking about it. I'm an intermediate surfer, and I can make this board go where ever I need to, quickly enough so I don't get behind waves. I surf it as a single fin with just the tailfin that came with it. I might try some different fin shapes and sizes, just for fun, but I love the way it surfs as is!

Awesome board, suits my style of surfing. I changed the fishhook fin to a hydrofoil dolphin cut 9" to give me more drive off the bottom turn,anyway it works for me.Surprisingly quick, the more hollow the wave the better it goes,cheers kiwi.
