Surfboards by Donald Takayama Flo Egg Review

What the Surfboards by Donald Takayama site says about the Flo Egg:

‘The Flo Egg is nothing like the traditional Egg Donald makes, this board is a low rail, single fin wonder. This one is for those who like the long drawn out, full rail turns of the single fin shortboard days. A throwback to a time when shortboarders still had a log or two in their regular quiver, but who wanted to experience tighter, more in the pocket turns than their longboards allowed them.’

What people are saying about it:

Single fin wonder. When you want to get off the long board and make tighter turns and hang in the pocket.” – reviewsurfboards.com

I could not personally surf this board well, I kept cavitating on my bottom backside turn and wiping out on a big day, I had to finesse my turns to keep from wiping out. On the other hand, my friend rips on this board!” – user Kava on reviewsurfboards.com

My magic board. If I were able to choose my favorite conditions and choose the board for it, The Flo Egg would be it. I’ve ridden my 7’0″ in waist high to 2′ overhead. As a longboarder I appreciate a nice single fin with round pin and its flow in and out of turns. If you are looking to step down off of a traditional log when the conditions start getting good, this would be the board. Only problems I have had is it has a hard time paddling into wave on mushy days. The belly tends to push water not channel it, but when you make the drop the belly to slight double vee really turns on. If you dig the ’70′s shortboard single fin style of flow. I think you will love this board.” – user Philip on reviewsurfboards.com

I just got a 7’2″ flo egg. Still dialing it in. I’m 185 lbs and I can get in ok just not as soon as I wanted to. But I love the board and with winter here, I needed something more than a 5’10” fish or longboard. Turns fine, put the new helo fins on.” – user on oldguysrip.blogspot.com

This board is siiiiick… lots of drive, nice flex feeling in the finger fin, & paddles into anything. I rode it at 2-3 foot Rincon to 8-10 foot Church.” – user parkiteric on Surfer Mag
