anyone know anything about these boards? how do they ride for a intermediate rider?

I think that Matt makes a great board. The construction is excellent and have never heard any complaints from those that do ride them. I got to ride one of his Wombat last year during a quick surf sesh with Matt and I liked it. I can't remember what fin setup it had on it, but it had nice speed to it when it you needed it. <BR> <BR>Google for his website and you can find some more info there. Matt is a stand up guy and I'm sure he'd more than willing to talk with you about what would work best you

i bought a wombat sight unseen, the board is awesome. Mine has a quad fin design, makes it very easy to pump a couple of times and come back to wake from very far away. The board is "twitchy" but after a couple of rides its one of the funnest boards i have rode. I have ridden:hl broadcast, coex, swell, lf custom thruster, and a few is boards.

If you go to our site, or watch any of our videos, you will see plenty of pictures of RJ on his blue quad SMED. Its a great intermediate board. RJ is now riding on the walker project JWSM which is more of a performance/advanced board. The SMED is great to rip on and get air, but the quad design is stiffer/stabler so harder for spin and real tight tricks like 360s. <BR> <BR>One thing I LOVE about the 2 smed wombats I have, is that they were both PU and NOT EPS boards, yet VERY tough and durable. This is definitely a board that will last a long time.

I have a SMED Wombat. I've ridden well over 20 different types of boards... Walker Project, Inland Surfer, Shred Stixx, etc... The Wombat is by far my favorite. A very solid board that would absolutely fit an intermediate rider due to great tracking and the ability to have dual or quad fins. Definitely recommended.
