DHD DX1 Review

What the DHD site says about the DX1:

‘The Jack Freestone DX1 is my refined ultimate performance design, this rocker has stood the test of time. The DX1 is a great example of all the elements coming together for that perfect balance. It runs a single concave all the way through that gets quiet deep through the belly into the tail. Smooth plan shape combined with a smooth rocker and a tight super squash tail.’

What people are saying about it:

“I took this board away on a trip through Central America with me and only ended up riding it a few times. I usually ride a bit flatter and stubbier board and so in the softer beach breaks I felt a lot more comfortable on my usual boards. However, on a bigger wave with a bit more face to work with this was really fun. I ordered this with a round tail and it felt really good off the bottom and would go on rail really easily. It had enough foam under the chest that it would paddle real well but not so much that it felt too foamy. I liked this board in good waves but for smaller fatter beachies I’d farther ride something stubbier.” – Nick on Board Cave

“Hi, had a Monsta last year, and although it wasn’t bad, I just got a DX1 JF and its such a great board. So easy to ride, and goes in waist hi to head and a half. Im tall and thin build, and it felt like you had to be a stocky/powerful kinda surfer to get the most out of the Monsta. I usually prefer single to double concave as well, but it doesn’t seem to matter that the DX1 is single, it still rips in everything. I think DHD will sell a heap of these. Hope this helps.” – Username Southcoast on Compare Surfboards

“I’ve got a DX1 JF 6’1 19 1/8 2 1/2. I’m 6’1 195. I like it but not sure if I’m in love with it. Does most everything well but occasionally when I’m trying to do a deep bottom turn or lay the board on rail the wider tail doesn’t want to sink that well.” – User Tedshred on Surfermag Forum
