I've had the 5-7 Free Wave and the 5-8 Rodeo Fish for the past couple of years. I got the Free Wave for Gorge conditions and the Rodeo Fish for lighter winds. At least that was my plan, but I tend to ride the Fish most of the time. It's a smooth ride, a snappy turner with a very nice balance under foot. These are great boards and the construction is second to none. John really focuses on the details.
