    Mine were Neo and Sparkplug (which I bought as a boat board). My buddy’s was a Neo.

    Not trying to be biased, just telling you how it went.

    Reach out to Nick at Chaos or Jeff at SC. Both are great choices and no one will know more about the boards then the guys building them.

    I rode a SC da honu head to head with my Doomswell Nubstep. Same fins, same wave. I liked my nubstep better, but they were actually damn close. For the extra price of a SC, I wouldn't spend the extra on it. they basically rode almost the same, but like I said, I preferred my Nubstep.

    And then once I added new fins to the mix, it was a game changer. I was riding the F2's and now swap back and forth between the John John Grom fins and the Blackstix F4's. Right now the Blackstix are on my wife's Sparkplug and I have the John John Grom's on my Nubstep. (the JJG feel a little looser, and the BS seem to have a bit more drive and not quite as loose).

    I don't regret my Doomswell at all. Are there other boards that are equal or better? Probably. But ever since getting my Nubstep, I've been less interested in finding my next board and more interested in enjoying the one I love. Now if someone threw a PSC at me, I'd be happy to enjoy the hell out of it.

    Never ridden a P5 other than my kid's Scamp! LOLOLOL

    I would respectfully submit that you haven’t ridden a great fin yet. Try a set of medium or large flare fins from Chaos Surf Co. I have some F4 Blackstix that live in their pouch.

    Furthermore, your head to head is understandable. I am sure there are meaningful differences in geometry that translate to your feet on your wave. On mine (ours), it wasn’t very close. They were Neos also, not the Nubstep. The Doomswells were markedly heavier than the others (they were candy coat painted boards). So there are variables that probably don’t translate between respective trials

    Chaos to Doomswell cost difference is negligible. Boat show Soulcraft to Doomswell difference is also close. Retail Soulcraft is expensive. No question!

    There are tons of folks that love their Doomswells. Can’t argue that. I get a charge out of the guys that hand shape and make boards light as a feather. It’s an intriguing craft to me.

    Try Nick’s fins. They’re sick! Also, to support your statement about fins changing the game—it’s so true. What I have discovered most recently is that a quad setup with nubsters in back gives even more drive. It’s actually faster, even though a twin setup “feels” faster. If that makes any sense?

    Man surfing is fun.

    Is it safe to assume that the Chaos fins fit the same box that the futures do? They are interchangeable right? They appear to be when I look at the website.

    They are indeed Futures boxes. I have only seen Futures usage from Nick-

    Thanks for the feed back. I ended up going with the 2018 nubstep. I took advantage of the Moomba Wakemakers discount code. Saved $140.00.
    As far as the Nubstep, I am not disappointed. There will always be another board to buy...lol

    I thought that code was 10%?!

    What is this magical discount you’re speaking of?!
