I recently had Sage make me a 9'6 "Vice" log as I was after something that would be super easy to nose ride in a mmajority of conditions. This vice is a little different as the rails, nose and tail have all been slightly modified.
The board is epic. It's a deep marone tint with a rather large white circle on the bottom. It's super easy to ride as it paddles like a dream and trims across a wave effortlessly. My initial thoughts were to ride this beauty with a 10" hatchet even though I have been riding Greenough style fins in most of my recent logs. The hatchet went well as it allowed nice transitions and drew sweet lines. Although every time I went to nose ride through a critical section the tail kept letting go and has been driving me crazy.
