Eps core is a closed cell foam. The benefits are boyancy and water intrusion. Standard foam can soak up water like a sponge if the fiberglass is cracked. Making it more fragile. Eps wont soak up any water. Brock wasn't shaping with anything but his hands at the time and from standard foam blocks. He has gotten a little bigger since then. Should I say, a lot bigger.

I even had to do a repair, he shipped me some resin, his special mix, and it went on like butter and fixed my crack.

Board looks great man. Can't wait to hear your review.

Just to revive an old thread. Anybody have their newer boards like Bigstep, Drone or neo? I think the Nubstep may be little small for me at 6ft 185lbs.

Wow - cool that you're close to your customers!!

Random (sorta) question, have you ever considered developing an asymmetrical tail? I'd been thinking about these after reading up on a SUP design that incorporated one. Seems it might carry some merit.... squirrley on one side and stable as you kick back out? something like this.

I don't have any experience with the newer boards, but as an owner of the Nubstep 4'6" I can tell you that at 6ft 185lbs you are likely at the upper weight limit for the Nubstep.
I've had one for a couple years. I'm 6ft. and when I first got it I weighed 177lbs. At that weight the board was perfect for me. When my weight got up to around 185 last year I could definitely tell a difference! I could still ride the board, but it wasn't as easy to recover, and release off the wave.

I haven't ridden the other boards, but I suspect that the 4'8" NEO would work well at your weight, or the 4'10" Bigstep would certainly be adequate.

FYI- I have a Maristar 210 with a decent surf wave, but nothing huge. YRMV.

I have to emphasize that I love my Doomswell board and have had excellent experience in dealing with Brock. He will answer any questions you may have.
After two full seasons of use, my board is still rock solid. It has some scuffs from the board racks, but no damage.
