Joel Fitzgerald makes an impressive board. After my first surf this morning in beautiful shoulder to head high ESE swell, I can already tell this Joel Fitzgerald Wanderer is just right. I wanted a high quality user friendly board for clean normal size waves 3-5 feet that I can control turns well. I love everything about this board – the shape, colour, build quality, logo, nose, concave, rocker, channel bottom, and the tail. It’s just perfect.

I’d say this board most closely matches my expectations from order to how it rides.
