THE MAGIC MIX - 5’7 X 19 3/8 X 2 5/16 – 26.5L
I started working for DHD when I was 17-years old. At the time, JS was under the same roof, so they were my main influences when I first started shaping. I was also lucky enough to learn a thing or two from Simon Anderson during my time with Base. Aptly named, The Magic Mix is a blend of all the magic elements that go into some of our most popular boards. Super versatile, The Magic Mix excels in surf from knee high to overhead, and rides well in burgers and barrels. Developed in Coolangatta, Australia and tested throughout the world, the Magic Mix is sure to be your day-to-day go to surfboard.
The dimensions of the Sparrow are really suited for me and it feels really good under the arm and well balanced with the weight. All those signs make you really excited about a board. I’m excited to ride it because it was shaped by Sparrow who I rode boards for when I was little.
I rode the Magic Mix in small, 2 foot beachies and it was really lively and super quick. It was extremely whippy off the top too, to the point where it was so easy to blow it out that you could tone it down a bit and still get good release. I thought it would be such a good board for someone who wanted to start turning quicker and more freely than they have been. It releases when trying to do some fun stuff without having to try as hard. Someone that surfs well would appreciate this board and have a lot of fun in a variety of conditions. I think it’s a good four-foot and under board just because of all the release, and in smaller stuff you’d be having fun.
Wade had no dramas with the quick release of the Super.
