I didn't order an Atom myself (too many baords allready) but I was VERY tempted. To me it sound like a fun concept. And indeed there is a lot of Aero heritage in there, in thinner package. Just the other day I sailed light win waves with a 100kg guy who was having a blast on his original Aero 117. For a big guy like that the Aero was one of only a few really big wave boards. The Atom follows these steps and also adds the feeling of sailing strapless, which is btw something I've enjoyed with my full EVA deck Starsurfer which is also the original Aero shape. A fun and unusual feeling both in waves and on flat water.
