Part of the plan, Olds, if the board and I get on.

Seems some more interest bubbling away but non committal.

No tricks MF, next time it comes out of hiding I'll see if I can measure it.

That's fantastic, p_a, very reminiscent of the Tak scorpion. Should go a treat.

How big is that puppy?

that one is 6'0 x 21 x 2 5/8 - very full rails, but foiled out a little to the nose and tail.

very flat rocker in the front, and a bit of kick in the tail, almost like the rocker is back to front, and a quite deep single concave running the full length. Guy that bought it has been riding it as a quad so far and his comments have been that it catches waves super easy and nose rides really well, and drives through turns.

tossing up between one of these or a new twin keel mini simmonsesque board for myself.

saltman - they way i was thinking is that its kind of like a mini simmons with 8-12 inches of pin tail on the end, so i'd compromise between a mini simmons and mid length shape. The guy i made this for was originally going to be on a 5'2 mini simmons, but had a change of heart. I wouldn't go too short without beefing up the tail width quite a bit, or chopping it off!

PS the tint job above was to match the guys vintage style motorcycle.

p_a, if it goes anything like a Scorpion I can tell you they are very versatile, mine is large at 7' but take it out in pretty much anything. I would go one of these over a Simmon's type board any day.

Still think the short version of these, say like pirate's, would be a very different kettle o' fish compared to a mid-length.

This is my little one, not quite so teardrop shaped but a great small wave board none the less. 5'9"x20.5"x2.5"
When it gets to this level of self important stupidity I lose interest.

Literally four years on… it did get finished, but how it changed! Got somewhat changed pre glassing etc. Thanks to Tomo-inspired design no longer a pintail, etc, etc, and this is the same board I mislaid recently at Dee Why.

The fifth plug knubster is the most recent inclusion and ridden only once since. Did it need it? Who knows, I had fun prior, but what the heck!

Dims only really changed in length. Now 5'11", ride is fast, feels like the fastest I've ridden. Slices through cutbacks with the really fine rails that I thought may be a problem.
