The Axis looks very much like the T60....but from what I can see, quite expensive! What is the price in USD?

I have a Canadian custom builder that makes beautiful stuff if anyone is interested. American bucks go even further up here. PM me if interested.

I appreciate all the comments. To address some of them:

Delta is only making race boards right now.

A lot of the others mentioned don't have enough displacement. I want minimum 30-35 L.

The Moses T60 doesn't have tracks

The Camet looks nice but is surprisingly not that very light.

I am in communication with Temavento and a local custom builder.

If anyone has a 30 L plus Temavento, would love to see the dimensions including weight.

Beautiful. If you are giving her that, soon she will be more than your girlfriend!

Ha ha! She is very good to me :-)

He will build totally custom dimensions (we collaborated on this one starting from rough T60 dimensions and added concave and a bit more volume etc)
turned it around in about 3 weeks start to finish. Very very reasonable price for custom. 3.9 kg which is .3kg more than the T60 glass but we made it bomb proof because we boost a LOT. The mast tracks are in carbon boxes bonded to the top skin, deck is domed for structural integrity.

Thanks, I wanted it to be a tiny bit girlie but not too much :-) Figured the pad colors would do it.

Very nice looking board. What do you think the volume is? I believe the T60 is around 30 L ??
