It feels to me like the template is off. The nose should stop somewhere at the top of the big black T.

Maybe. Could also be the spray or the widest point being back from centre? For $150 I was happy to take a punt. Pretty refined and light on volume. Gonna need some grunty waves to get it going. Will suit voodoo well I reckon.

That's definitely what it is. I'm not saying it won't work (what would I know) but it looks to me that I want the wide point pushed forward.

Well that’d make more sense, unless you’re talking to Geoff McCoy I guess. *sigh*

Though as long as it goes ok in some overhead grunt I’ll be happy. Not expecting a lot from the board or myself on it to be honest, as it a HPS (type of boards I tend to surf the least and the worst).

I think all fears about wonky outlines will disappear when you hook it off the bottom on your backhand and belt the lip to kingdom come. But you won't be able to perform a tacky air flip rodeo stale fish so the kids won't like it :-D-:

been surfing this to death lately. such a good, basic board. deep single into a medium double. foiled out to the rails and a classic almost 80's outline. i think i've done some of my biggest backhand turns i've ever done, even though i don't think i'm half the surfer i was in my 20's.

it's at the point where i wouldn't know what board to get if/ when i break this one. does that happen? do we get to a point in our surfing where we just get the same board over and over again because nothing else will feel this good or be this good under our feet?

and the fins are too far back.

all the foam in this board is just wrong. all the curve at the back foot is only good for turns; wide point between the feet ='s not paddling, not getting into waves; but the rocker on the board is made for hollow, backless pits where you won't ever be turning. but without any meat under your chest, you're gonna be scratching in late.

be super interested to hear how the board goes iggs. the outline, foam distribution and rocker all look to be working against each other.

Slick little thing lil bro designed for me with Max Stewart, long DNA strand going back to 1978, renewed here as a 6'1" x187/8" x25/16", flat to single/flat concave

Normally I can't stand Tom's boards but this is a delicate yet firm fleshed little beauty.

Spray by Martin W., yep he is still working

Fcuk this site by the way.

What's that one going to be used for?
Hollow beachies?
