Haha !. Also, surf blanks have a machine shaped egg, designed by midget. 7'0" is 20 1/2 by 3, down to 6'0" X 20. Longer they get, the narrower the nose and tail dims. Be probably 400 to finish sand and glass one yourself. At least you know the shape has been designed by midget.

Haha.

I rode my Takayama Egg this morning in good head and a half. I've come to the conclusion that the wider nose (not near as wide as a mal) is just getting in the way too often and is not doing anything useful.

So it won't be taken to Indo again and all that roll and vee make it a bit slow in Perth so it'll probably get traded for something else.

I don't think that this will cause me any eggistential angst though

Not here Cranked, my memory is a little scrambled but I'm sure I have an egg photo or two to lay down.

Sounds like you're about to give the quiver a bit of a scramble.

Is it an egg? A minimal? A mid-length? Who gives a fcuk. Bought this yesterday off Gumtree.
Firstly let me say I have never owned or ridden anything except conventional short boards, albeit longer than most of you are used to, but not where I come from. I do have a Grant Miller 6' 7" F-Skate which is a fishy shape and it goes great in the kind of surf it was meant for, so it gets me out on days I probably wouldn't have gotten wet otherwise.
So anyway this should be interesting.
7' 6" x 21 1/2 x 2 1/2 way thinner than anything else I own, most of my boards are around 2 7/8. Double concave at back, slight roll up front, quite a lot of lift in the tail, knifey rails up front.
PU foam, solid glass job, futures boxes, made by a guy in Adelaide who makes a lot of boards and glasses a lot of boards for shapers on the west coast.

I finally got around to giving this board a go yesterday :~ well hey it was stashed in an awkward spot to get at.
Not bad, nice glide and feels right for the sloping faced waves I bought it for.
Could not duck dive the thing though. Very frustrating, try as hard as I might, just could not sink the nose to any great degree. Work in progress.
