Hey mate. A friend of mine owns one and i have used it heaps. They're great board. They are expensive but are definately worth it as an all round board. they paddle well, can catch small to medium swell, and perform surpisingly well.

A reckon its a perfect transition board for someone looking at going from longboards down to shortboards or a shortboard rider looking for that addition to the quiver used for small waves.

Hope this helps

Hi There, I own the brother to the Wombat, The Freedom Fish.  I had weighed up which board to get as they both offer a good deal of float while no ignoring performance.

Personally, if you like getting fun, any size waves and aren't too fussed about sharp turns and tubes...the fat ass is a big winner.

I'm not one to have flashy gear for the sake of turning heads.  I just want my boards to perform well.  Nevertheless, my Bear turns a lot of heads and draws heaps of attention.  It's the crown in my quiver.


PS.  I live near the shaper.  Let me know if I can help at all.

I've had one for a few years - love it.  Had one of the best days ever on it, 4 - 6' reef break, 150 meters.  Performs well in a variety of conditions.
