Mobius in action!

Hello everyone,

I have been lucky enough to paddle all the prototypes of the Mobius over the past year watching it become one of the most unique boats I have ever paddled.  The first prototype was faster on a wave than any playboat I have ever surfed and looped huge but not so user friendly.  I wish I had some video of us surfing version 1, we went equally huge on our tricks and wipe-outs.  Totally creased.  Hans, the designer, tweaked the design over the past year with the help of…

Endless River Adventures Blog on Project X - Confessions of a Closet Playboater
