I have ridden mccoys for the past 10 years, (2-6'6" a 6'0" and a 7'0") These boards give you a smile and you will catch heaps of waves! I am a heavier dude (210 pounds) so a normal waffle is not an option, but I have my secret weapons. I lend my boards out all time and everybody who rides them comes back with a sh*# eating grin. I have surfed these boards on every type of surf and they work very well (not so much on really steep barreling waves beacause the butt end of the boards is huge) but everything else they are awesome. Very stable boards and ride them short if you want them to turn, and be aggressive if you want them to duck dive! Mccoy started building his nuggets 20 years ago and just recently every where I go I am starting to see every other board builder copying his designs (Look at the Channel island biscuit...foam is your friend my friend) We are not pros and we want to actually surf and have fun! get one and smile.
