I took the alternator on a head high day. It’s the fastest thruster I’ve ever ridden. I made waves that I felt I would normally never made on my other boards.

This is a perfect board, very durable, incredible speed and great paddling. You can use it in both big and small days.

I have the 7'2" Alternator but find it a little too wide. I like the way it responds and rides but it has recently been broken by the airlines. I'm looking for something along the same sort of lines as it was. Possibly the CI Big Willy or M13? Please help me out. Thank you.

I've had this board for 3 years with only little pressure dings from where i was surfing easily overhead waves at least 6 ft board is really fast, and turns on a dime. I would recommend this board to everyone out there looking for a great ride
