This is an easy product test for Slim because I’ve been riding Diverse surfboards for around the last 10 years here in Bali.
Once you’ve ordered a new custom made Diverse surfboard Dave will have it shaped and finished within 7-10 days maybe quicker if it’s an emergency. These boards are quality surfboards and I do mean high quality. I’ve rode just about everything Dave can dish out from a 6’0″ Fish, to 5 fin Quad set up, your standard 3 fin Thrusters (my favorites), Dave also made me big wave guns for Outside Corner / Uluwatu and I even have a 8’0″ fun board for when it’s 1ft on the beach breaks.
I’ve rode Diverse surfboards in 1 to 12ft+ (5-6 times overhead)waves here in Bali and I’ve never snapped one. Even the standard glass jobs are solid and your not going to end up with the deck full of depressions (golf balled) after your first couple of surfs.
All in all I’ve gotta give Diverse surfboards an all round 2 thumbs up on design, finish and performance, Diverse surfboards are a complete package and with David the owner / shaper being very approachable and helpful you can’t go wrong.
