The Cali Square I rode is a 9'2 x 22.625 x 2.875
It was great! We didn't score the best waves, but longboards made it fun.
A couple more inches of length would have been nice. 9'6" always feels good to me, but overall the waves were a bit small and dumpy that day so I wouldn't change anything about having a 9'4" out there that day.
I've ridden the Cali Square in Hawaii, California and Iceland. The best session I've ever had on it was a Sano-Esque beach break near the airport in Iceland one frosty morning. The waves were a little fat, but the board felt like a dream that day. One of those sessions I'll remember forever.
I think the Cali Square would work for a surfer with less experience to someone very experienced. It feels stable and trusty under the feet, and my favorite part about it is the speed it carries into any section.
I have the Cali Square and the Silver Spoon. I keep going back and forth on which is my favorite. The Cali Square seems a little faster and more fluid, but there's nothing like the long noserides on the Silver Spoon.
I'm with a lot of people in loving boards in the 7' range at the moment. A 7'1" Sling Shot was my ride or die for the last 7 months in Hawaii, and I love my 6'4" Bing Dart. I'm now eyeing the Sunfish as well as a new model called the Slalom. With a longboard background I definitely tend to go for boards with more volume. Eggs and fishes are heaps of fun when the waves are broken up or a little bigger.
I'm itching for some warm water at the moment. Hopefully Costa Rica or Mexico with a couple friends, then hoping to get back up to Alaska the next chance I get!
