Well there you go.

Re: Midlengths

An Astron Zot story - maybe not quite a midlength for this thread, but close in volume. I bought two Zots, a 6'8 and a 6'1, just before I left for Bali. I've been riding them and yeah, they drop in nicely and are solid and reliable, but there was certainly no high performance stuff going on. Very pe...

Re: Quiver thread

I would think the width and curve of the tail would be more important than whether it was a swallow or round.

You could take any round tail and, more or less, cut a swallow into the last few inches.

Re: Midlengths

I have a 7'10 Takayama Egg. As a hull the amount of roll is incredible, but it does mean you can ride and turn from anywhere on the board, and its just so smooth.

I'm just tossing up whether to take it to Bali along with the Zots and go full retro. Should be good in knee high to double overhead

Re: Where did you surf today ?

You see, Thommo, the turbotunnel's actions extend far beyond simple physics. That little tunnel is actually a connection to an alternate universe from which it draws and harnesses unlimited power. Its also a connection to a universe where Bernoulli's Principle does not apply and some of that leaks ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Oh god I don't know if I rally wanna get into this too far but whatever Look cranked, you started out here by quoting the effect of water being pushed from a wider pipe into a smaller one and saying this was the Bernoulli effect and this was what was happening with channels or Bonzers etc. It's jus...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Where to start? The bottom of the board is a number of foils determined longitudinally by the rocker and transversely by V, roll, concaves, etc. with water moving across it in many different directions as the attitude of the board and its relationship to the wave continually changes. The rails and f...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

so the Bernoulli effect is going to be happening on every curved surface of the board that is in contact with the moving water incorrect. There are a number of things happening as an airplane wing slices through the air. First, the angle of the wing (the “angle of attack”, as it’s called) means tha...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I just threw in drag. Its definitely a result of movement of any fluid over a surface, it is not the result of the Bernoulli effect The Bernoulli effect is what enables an an aeroplane to fly for god's sake. The movement of the air over the curved surface of the wing is what produces the lift, so th...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

tbh, I really laid that out as a bait for someone a lot smarter than Loof I'm not that smart guy, but the channels or concaves serve to constrain the water flow under the board, which is analogous to the large diameter pipe flowing to a smaller diameter pipe of the BERNOULLI'S PRINCIPLE examples.
