Manufacturer Description
6'8" Merrick Flyer - Flyer - The most popular shortboard in the line. This board excels in small to medium surf but still rides and responds like a conventional shortboard. Al considers this the best small wave shortboard he has ever designed. It should be ridden 2"" to 3"" shorter and 1/4"" to 1/2"" wider than your normal shortboard. For the surfer who wants to maintain the same speed and maneuverability you have on your shortboard in good waves but when the surf is small.

Great for catching waves. Performs better than average shortboard for catching waves but a little less responsive.

One of the best travel boards ever. Strong, lightweight and paddles like crazy. This is the first design that made Merrick famous...nuf said.

my first epoxy. Didn't know they're more buoyant and got a 6'8" (2 inch longer than my PU shorty). Could barely duck it and, every time I went for a barrel, it would just ride ride up the face and out the back. Relatively slow due to lack of weight (even nowadays, most shapers still don't glass the weight balance right on eps/epoxy boards...it's still relatively new).
