I have a few custom Soulcrafts that will be done next week and I'm super stoked to get them. My personal board is a Fang Tail and I have a few Jetty's coming as well. Handcrafted in the USA and Jeff is awesome to work with. I've been on four different ones that the Vilands have and they are awesome boards. Here's a few production pics of my board and a few other pics as well (the last three are not my pics but there's a SC board in them and I'm sure you'll like them) :) My board will have a pretty sick lay out and the art work on the bottom should be pretty cool. And as usual I can hook people up if anyone wants a custom Soulcraft ;)

8.12.12: Board arrived today. Couldn't be happier. It's awesome!

The pics don't show any more than a lot of bikinis so they should be fine. Mods if you don't like the pics instead of closing the thread just let me know and I'll delete the last three links... Carry on folks :)

My new Fangtail! Art work is done. It's getting cleared and finished today and then out to me. I can't wait to get it. My son was born this year and it's the year of the Black Dragon on the Chinese Zodiac. Did a little tribute board for him :) Original art work by Caroline Young. Done on the board by Chelsi Benger. I think it's one of the coolest surf boards I've ever seen. But I may be biased :)

This art work was designed by my best friend's brother and then done on the board by Chelsi the artist for Soulcraft .

Ironhorse they definitely do.

Scott both companies make awesome boards and there are a lot of similarities. I think they are very comparable in most aspects. I really like both which is why I have one of each for myself :) More often than not I will probably be on my new Fangtail...

After spending a few weeks with my Soulcraft I can very easily say it's my favorite board I've been on. I've got some new fins to test out as well. Jeff is also one of the nicest guys you will ever meet and he's a true craftsman when he's making custom surf boards. He's also got a new Pro Model coming out soon so you will see one of those soon. Just need to pick out the colors I want on it :)

Pretty good footage of the event here.....

http://www.wakesurfchampionships.com/

Doesn't look good for riding the Fang Tail I have on order this year. Pretty sure yesterday was our last time out for the season unless we get some crazy good weather. Water was already in the 50s and weather forecasts are predicting lows in the 30s for this week. That will be good for taking another 5 - 7 degrees of water temp. Getting a crew together with those numbers gets really challenging.

Haven't seen my board in person yet but it's supposed to be here on Black Friday. Won't be able to ride it until April or May but have a spot cleared out in my office for inspiration to get me through the winter.

For those considering a custom board Ryan has been excellent to work with and has demonstrated great communication skills and patience with a customer (yours truly) that has had a thousand questions. I would highly recommend having Ryan walk you through the process if you are considering ordering a custom board. There are a lot of options when it comes to shaping and ride style and having someone that knows the ropes certainly helped me.

I would also advise ordering early as they are custom and as such will take some lead time to be made. By the looks of the pictures it would certainly seem it was well worth the wait. Now I just need to order up some swag to go with the board. The wife is already looking for ideas on what to get me this year. Do you know if Soulcraft is offering any gear to go along with their boards? Didn't see anything on their website.

Thanks again for all your help. Now all I need is some warm weather and good wake.

Bill thanks for the kind words. Jeff has some nice shirts and hats for both men and women that he needs to get on his site. He had all the stuff at Worlds so hopefully he'll have it all up soon so people can order some swag. Once it's up I'll let you know!

I get that. LOL. You seem to go on tangents riding/pushing one brand, then to another. Which do you prefer, the Soulcraft or TWP?

TheWoons
12-13-2012, 11:26 AM
There are things I like about both boards. Personally we have Soulcrafts, Walkers AND Inlands that we ride. I like to have a variety. My main board that I will spend the most time on though is probably going to be my new 2013 Soulcraft Fang Tail that I just got yesterday. It's the white/red one in the pics I just posted. I haven't ridden it yet but will this weekend. I'll never have just one board.

wbreaux
12-20-2012, 12:34 AM
alright I really like the smaller inland surfer skim style boards and was looking to pick one up this winter. How does these other boards compare. I really like surface style tricks and my x2 doesnt throw a massive wake so I dont want a big surf board for that reason as well. Also Im about 185 and I was wondering how small I could comfortably go?

TheWoons
12-20-2012, 12:22 PM
I've been playing with Sticky Bumps Wax for the front traction instead of a pad and I have to say I like it a lot better! More grip for sure!

http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh295/RWoon/Lake/photo-1-2.jpg

Skim and surf boards don't really compare too much but if you want to do surface tricks like 360's, 720's, etc you can definitely do that on a surf board as well. If you want more info on a Soulcraft with pricing and specs for your size and boat PM me.

12-21-2012, 01:23 AM
Be careful with that wax when it gets warmer out. It will end up all over your boat... Big mess. I used to get it all over my car when I'd bring surfboards back home to the desert until I got smart and started scraping it off before coming home. It starts getting soft at maybe 85-90F and turns to nearly liquid by 100F. Direct sunlight will start loosening board wax enough to rub off on your vinyl maybe even in the 70-80F range. I'm digging deep in the memory banks on this one so don't hold me to the temps.

TheWoons
12-21-2012, 11:34 AM
We'll definitely be careful when it gets warmer out. They make a lot of different waxes for various temps too.

Those boards look sweet. I've been an avid surfer for over 20 years. I recently started wake surfing and I'll be teaching my daughters to wakesurf this year. Is there an advantage to the fang tail? I always surfed (ocean) with a squash tail, or a square tail. I've also surfed on some swallow tails. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Your designs and graphics are off the charts. By the way, Mr. Zog's s#x wax for boards held up great in the florida heat, i don't know if it would work out for you guys.

TheWoons
04-20-2013, 08:59 PM
TN Barefooter we use sticky bumps wax and love it! PM me your number and I'll call you and give you some details on the Fang Tail versus the Swallow and Squash.

Quickly explanation:

Swallow is fast but mainly for down the line speed and airs, it tends to lock in or suck down when trying to release for tricks.

Squash has the good release for tricks but can be slower than the others.

Fang tail is the best of all worlds, has the speed, release and control in and out of the wake.

Been a bit busy. We have a 24 month old and an 8 month old now and it's taken up all our time. Haven't been out on the water in a year BUT we will be back on the water very soon. Should have a new boat in the next month or so! Trying to decide what boat now...

What boat are you thinking?

TheWoons
03-30-2014, 07:55 PM
When we had our first he started going to the lake at 3 weeks old. Having two…. that's a different story :) Especially when we usually only went with 3 or 4 of us. We would need more hands to help at this point when we go.

Nick I am considering a 46 but I haven't been behind one yet. Everyone has told me it doesn't surf nearly as well as the 30. I haven't followed the wake surfing boat progression much over the last year so I'm trying to catch up now and decide asap.

KnoxX2
03-30-2014, 07:59 PM
I still think the 30 is the best boat that MC has out for surfing! The X 10 dose a good job but it's a little small for a larger crew

From what I've read it seems that the X30 is the top surf boat in MC's line but I don't think we've seen anyone really dial in a 46 yet with 3K-plus for surfing like you had on your X25.

Agree. I've spent a lot of time in the 25 and 30. I'm just not sure I want to spend $120-145k to "test" out a 46 :)
