there may be a certain degree of difficulty getting Frank Latta to shape you another board.

Really thin nose - hence no nose riding at all...But incredible speed in anything from ankle to chest high. It's stringerless, so i don't go any bigger than that. I've often contemplated selling or swapping for a dedicated nose-rider...

I've got an 8'4 Lovelace Sherbert - very fast and very foiled. It's a slightly oversized vbowls with a square nose. I love it and have a new appreciation for rails since getting it. For a board with no rocker those rails are a face saver. I'm no shredder but it's a joy to ride, and I've made some super sucky take offs and cover ups on it.

check out Ron Goddards range.

I have a 9'2" modern log with massive double concaves to spiral vee and chined rails. Noserides well and turns on a dime on the tail.
And an 8''6" foiled out, heavily rockered beachbreak quad.

very good boards

Goddard boards are good. I've got a "free range egg", stumpy little 5'6 quad, goes really good in half foot - 3 foot, super fast, heaps of volume and catches anything.

I was more just flowing on from tootr's post that referred to Goddard boards, rather than strictly adhering to the title of the thread, but I'm really glad I amused you so much MrMilk, happy to have made your day.

Love my Outer Island Supermals with the V2 ( yellow one )

without the flex tail single to double concave with a unique tweak around the fins ride them a single or with the smaller set of FC Bonzer Quad fins as side bites. Ride them as big as double over head Rote ( Tland ) or down as small as is rideable at the Bar but then as single. The green Outer Island I ride with the BLEF

Jaffa, I'm opinionated, and I'm sometimes right. So?

Nice That one, thinking of a Balsa one to celebrate the endurance of surfing in my life. Just Cashing up for it, Outer Island leading so far , any thoughts for a 100kg veteran around the 9'3 mark Kayu?

Nice thanks , in the mix, strangely enough knew John vaguely when I lived at Tumbi Umbi my shapers then were mainly Wiz with an occasional Glen Winton, Mr X Board or a Jack Knight.
Will probably ring John on Monday. :-D-:
