    Does the Drone release easy for spins?

    Do you guys send video to Brock of you surfing on your favorite board? Was wondering about how he customizes for specific people.

    When I was debating between the Drone (which I'd ridden before I bought) and the Nubstep (which I'd never ridden); I ended up talking with Brock at Length and went with the Nubstep.

    Yes, the nubstep's tail is a little better for spins. I haven't had a chance to compare a drone and a nubstep side by side (and the only drone in our area is a 4'4 and I have a 4'6 nubstep).

    In the end, I'm happy with my choice. I adore my Nubstep and haven't found another board I like better.

    the drone has slightly more volume for its size . I customized a 4'8" to fit in between the standard sizes. very similar so brock can walk you through it based on your riding...

    I am leaning Nubstep but also thinking of Neo. I have a P5 Model X, I wish there was a way to demo the boards before I bought.
