PROTOtype #1

...well, finally get the pictures of this board that I made last year. I did it to send to the 2008 Sacred Craft show but unforeseen events let it outside..
anyway, this board is roughly based on the air induction concept of 1 of the 3 Morey s early 70s prototypes and after some mails with B Mckee and 1 with G Loehr, I decided to made it.
sports: HYDROSLOTS; flat and S deck; normal entry rocker for a fish but heavy rockered in the last 2´, kick tail too; 60/40s rails extremely tapered out to tail; concave bottom channel fading out in the same line of the front fins; "2 in 4" speed d fins, well, i do these rear modificated fins to half of the fishes and work better backhand than the cqc normal ones.
2 4oz Aerialite fiberglass on top and 1 on the bottom; gloss coat deck, speed finish/bit of gloss on the bottom.
this is the most modern contemporary fish that I did and like may be some of you just saw, follow the concept of my tail area design
