Condition 1 - A trashed surfboard, looks like poo. Not ridable or usable in any way. Not worth dumpster diving for, leave it in there.

Condition 2 - This board too, is trashed. Fins broken out, broke in half or bucked/delaminated. Not usable for surfing but could be used as decoration (best side out) the board may still has some value here. Fence posts in the back yard?

Condition 3 - The board could be ridden but has serious issues. It may still be buckled or could have hidden major delamination. There are likely open dings. Be very careful when buying a used board with this low of a rating.

Condition 4 - A usable surfboard but not in good shape. Some dings repaired but not very well. Or it may be an old surfboard that has not much life left.

Condition 5 - This surfboard is ridable and functional, but is quite worn. It's best years are behind it. Repaired dings may not be repaired very well.

Condition 6 - Although this board is worn or old, there is still some life left in this surfboard. Repaired dings are satisfactorily repaired buy some surfers standards.

Condition 7 - A used surfboard but overall in fair to good condition. Still plenty of life left in this used surfboard. Any open dings are quite minor, or already repaired.

Condition 8 - A repaired ding or three but professionally done so the board is in overall in very good condition.

Condition 9 - A new surfboard or like new. In great condition. A few possible minor surface scratches, minor off coloring, or imperfections, so this surfboard cannot be called a 10.

Condition 10 - Brand new. In perfect shape.

The Rocket9 is suited to your average waves like we find around California. It works great in beach breaks because it can be skatey when you want to generate that speed, but then you step back on that tail and you can absolutely hammer some vert wall. I also think that with the shorter nature of it, it fits really well in the tighter transitions of beach breaks. I have ridden it on big open walls of some point breaks in Morocco and it went well too, kind of like a little scalpel or snowboard, but I think the optimal range for this board would be 2 to 6 foot beach breaks. The Rocket9 outline has the wide point forward a bit and the tail is pulled in making it super snappy and maneuverable. The swallow gives a great fast release as well. One of the major desires for this board was I wanted was to go fast and then turn hard when I wanted in waves ranging from super average California beach breaks all the way to grinding little tubes. It’s one of the most versatile boards I have ever ridden. I like to ride my Rocket9 two inches shorter than my normal shortboard length. With the wider outline up front its able to hide a bit of volume under the chest to make the paddling still super easy even though you are on a shorter board. “ - Dane Gudauskas
