rockin' ron - i agree with you about the tail rocker, the flatter the tail the faster it will go. this is a design principle that Stuart Darcy implemeted when shaping POTTZ boards. but i unfortunately do not agree with the thickness in the tail. the larger off the shelf boards will have thickness ca...
