I ve been designing this type of shapes for heavy guys (92 Kg) up to 1.80m tall, who want to rides steeper or hollow waves that the longboards (classic, cruisers, tankers) dont perform so well and is very difficult to pass the waves to reach the line up.
so, in the first eyeballing is more for a beach than a pointbreak
even for guys who are not so good paddlers
somewhat a mix between retro and contemporary shape
designed to take the wave earlier than contemporary board (due to the position of the paddler in a) longboard, so have lot of volume (for a 6 6 ) between nose and WP
and to project after a good bottom turn to toob riding or describe slalom down to top faster lines
not intended for a heaviest guy (only if the guy have more than an average surf skills)
not intended also for small or fat wave conditions
specifications: shape- basic measurements are 6´6´´x 21 1/4 (WP) x 3 1/4´´(4"up) the others are very customer specifics.
Retro stuff-First 20" have down rails, slightly rolled bottom big nose, flat deck. Contemporary stuff- single concave all the way, 60/40s full rails to pinched, slightly dome deck near tail
-the outline have a more parallel aproach between the WP and the sweet spot, due to the toob riding
-medium to low rocker overall
-box fin with 1/8" pinline
glass- 3 Aerialite fiberglass 4oz on the deck, 1 4oz bottom. Gloss finish coat
paint and foam resin stain; 1/16", 1/8", 1/4" pinlines
built to blast!
