I S 4 skim moss vs Keenan flegel board
 
Been riding my 4 skim moss for about a year now and still really enjoy the board. But i have been really interested in upgrading to the inland surfer Keenan flegel skim board. Has anyone ridden both (or just the Keenan model) that could give me a review and some insight on this board and possible there differences disadvantages etc?
Thx

The Keenan and the moss are the same shape. The 2012 Keenan has a different core that makes it lighter, stiffer, and livelier than the Moss. Also the Keenan has sharper rails which makes it faster and more responsive.

The new Keenan is larger than the one which previously was the Moss. It has only been out a short time. Keenan is also working on a twin fin prototype.

Yeah the 2013 Keenan will be a totally new shape.
The 2011 and 2012 Keenan is the same outline as the Moss

I have the Moss 4 skim and have ridden the 2012 Keenen. As stated above, the Keenen is the same shape as the Moss, but lighter with sharper rails. Overall this makes the board feel faster and more lively. It also seems to spin fast possibly due to the slicker carbon fiber.

You could always grind down the rails on the moss to your liking a la - Jeff Walker. (http://flyboywakesurf.com/hot-rodn-the-ooze)

I really enjoy the skim style boards, I'm currently on a Phase 5 Drew from 3 years ago. The size fits my body profile 6'1" and 190lbs better.

Demo!

New shape for 2013? Hmmm maybe i should wait a bit longer and see what the new model will be like...

DC, the new shape is larger. So if you want a 51" shape then you would want the 2012 Keenan. Or next year the same board will be the 2013 Sean Cummings.
