Welcome back to The People’s Board Review, a board test series in which we enlist working-stiff, relatable rippers to give us feedback on the latest surfboard models in dims you can find right there in the rack at your local surf shop. For this review, we put @rssurfco's "Love Capsule" model, a fat and flat small-wave ripper, in the hands of four surfers of varying sizes and board preferences and took them down to fairly average California beach break on a peaky, head-high day. While this voluminous groveler is capable of warp speeds through flat sections in gutless waves, getting it to turn in more powerful pockets can be tricky, making this a specialized board for conditions that normally require a lot of effort to surf. All four of our testers agreed that this flat, pill-shaped quad would rule in the small stuff, or at a long, soft point like Malibu or Scorpion Bay. But that’s not to say there aren’t some merits to the design even in steep beach break conditions, which is where we tested it. Tester #2 (5’11”, 215 lbs.) rode the “Love Capsule” in 6’0” x 19.8” x 2.8” 37.42 L, and said that it felt just right. “If you’ve had a breakfast burrito, and you’re feeling a little slow, this is the board right here — it’s all love. I’d definitely prefer it at a wave with some length of ride, but I can tell it’s a good board.” All four testers rode this craft with traditional polyurethane foam construction, although RS also offers this board in epoxy.Head to our site for the full review.
Welcome to the first-ever People’s Board Review. “What the hell is this and why does it have vaguely Marxist undertones,” you ask? Well, it’s a board test series in which we enlist working-stiff, relatable rippers to give us feedback on the latest surfboard models in dims you can find right there in the rack at your local surf shop. Because you probably don’t need to know if a pro’s custom sled feels a little off when reconnecting with the transition after an inverted full-rotation—but you do want to know if the stock version paddles well, if it can generate speed easily and if the thing can turn worth a damn.For this review, we put off-the-rack “El Bandido” models from RS Surf Co. in the hands of four surfers of varying sizes and board preferences and took them to a fairly average beach break on a peaky, head-high day.
With its wide point forward and some hidden foam in the nose, this tri-fin craft offers high-performance feelings in a range of conditions without making you work too hard for it. While Tester #4 — the lightest of the bunch at 125 lbs., and who rode the “Bandido” in 5’8” x 19.25″ x 2.38″ 27.57 L — didn’t like that the board carried extra volume above the chest, the three other testers thought the “El Bandido” knew its niche — somewhere between a potato-chip thruster and a beefy groveler — and filled it perfectly. “This was the most well-rounded shortboard,” said Tester #1, who is 5’9” and typically rides boards with a volume around 26 liters, but didn’t mind the slightly fuller shape (ridden in 5’8” x 19.25” x 2.38” with 27 L). “It caught waves really easily and felt like it did everything I wanted it to. Just a good overall California shortboard. It’s a little more volume than I’m used to, but it didn’t feel too floaty at all. I was surprised by how well this board worked.” All four testers rode this craft with traditional polyurethane foam construction, although RS also offers this board in epoxy.Head to our site for the full review.
