New Jimmy Lewis toys on the way!!!

I've two new Jimmy Lewis wave SUPs on the way thanks to the guys at Jimmy Lewis UK

My fellow team member Mark "The Flick" Gaul, has taken my beloved 9'2 124litre StunGun to  (see review of the Stun Gun here

I've ordered two more boards from Jimmy's 2014 wave line (lucky me). 

Both are 5 fin-box beauties all in the same super-tough and super-light construction that Jimmy Lewis is famous for.

The first board will replace the StunGun. This will become my rough water/high wind wave board.

Its called the WorldWide, and I'll get the 8'5", 125 litre version. (it comes in 110, 125, and 140 litres). 

It comes with full deck pad and a slight swallow tail. More details are available on the Jimmy Lewis UK site.

The second board, will be an 8'3", is called the SuperTech.

It will be much smaller, has a square tail, and will become my perfect day/light wind board.

At only 105 litres (and my lardy 94kg) it will be a challenge! (It comes in 80, 90, and 105 litres).

Needless to say I can't wait to get my hands on these and get them in the surf!

Once they arrive and I get to play with them I'll post full reviews.

A big thanks to Ian Phillips @ Jimmy Lewis UK for sorting me out.
