Tried the new misfit 2012 136cm today 21-01-12. The misfit is a lot easier to ride than I thought it would be, being able to adjust the straps to give a good wide stance the board is easy to get off the water, easier to control and stop the rotation. The full wood core gives an impressive pop, and is pretty easy to drive up wind and then explode off the water. There is some spray that comes off the inside rail but nothing nasty. The straps and pads are good, they work well easy to adjust and do what they say on the tin. A good al-round ride, nice and friendly with good performance. Rode it with a 2011 airush vapour 10m in about 22knots.
