hot thruster








the customer s got a 6 2 * 18 1/2 * 2 1/4 flat bottom to slight double concave between fins with a not so "curved" outline; squash tail; soft rails to hard on tail

wanted not too many changes...but more maneuverability...

well, I made a 6 * 18 5/8 * 2 3/8 all flat bottom; similar rocker; similar fin shape but reduced the tip in the sidefins; more cant same toe in; curved the outline between the WP and the sweet spot; put a swallow tail with less area than the squash ; thinned the very tail to the pod (2.5´´up); same rails onto the deck but tucked edged to the bottom

foam 10 % lighter; 2 4 oz Aerialite fiberglass on top and 1 bottom; speed finish coat

...well Rob, like the title...custom boards

also in this board Id put knee patches to "prevent" the glass fatigue in that area (this guy is rude with his boards..)

-my shop right now is like the Kokua s

...te diré que yo te veo bien "pegado" a la ola (con respecto a la otra tabla)
además, la tabla responde muy bien a los impulsos de los pies (estuve mirando todos esos detalles)

-checkear la manera que dobla con respecto al plano del cuerpo y la ola,
ver por donde sale y de que manera, la estela de agua;
ver la posición de los pies y de que manera la tabla se "apoya" en la ola, etc

así es que se ve si la tabla está respondiendo o es un muerto...

y eso es lo que hice en el parque...

gracias
