bonzer surfing

3 weeks ago I surfed with a bonzer that I did for a customer
this pict was shooted from a distance of 200 mts or so
I say again that these photographers are not so good..and what happened with the bottom turn, and the other stuff?
not showed in the pict, but too much crowd that day and in a pointbreak..

small wave warrior

this fella sports an MDI foam; rolled bottom to some "V" in the fin then flat to the tail; all the bulk is in the fabric inlay area tapered to both sides and extremities; 50/50 s egg rails more accentuated to the bottom; fairly low entry rocker, good tail rocker; fin positioned forward (I have been got very good results with that and not so big not so raked fins);

3 x 4oz Aerialite fiberglass on top, 1 bottom, tail volan patch (not showed so well in the pict)
gloss finish coat
FOAM/FIBER tailblock
hawaiian fabric floral inlay
1/16( white on the fabric inlay), 1/8, 1/4 pinlines
mandala draw in white between the nose and the M logotype
fin with fabric inlay

this board is intended for quick rail to rail moves and forgiveness loose

paint it Red

Sometimes is difficult to make a custom board from a standard idea
happens in this one
the customer wants not too much changes in regard to the old board
only tiny changes here and there. And the most complicated part the same board for all type of surf and all the normal sizes..

He wants: a bit more maneuverability; early take off, a bit of projection
I made these changes: rounded a bit the tail outline curve; "V" bottom between side fins; more cant in the sidefins; large back fin; tucked edged rail; start the hard rail in the back rear edge of the side fins; extend the deck bulk more forward (not tapered); the guy stand up forward, to take advantage of this, I thinned out the last inches of foam (to compensate) (the pod is more forward); more chest area; nose pulled a bit; the outline in the middle, has a more "parallel" aproach

hope that the board works for him..
