Looks strong as fcuk, foils. Any flex to it or is it stiff as Braithwaite's todger in cadaver class?

Hi Offshore1, the rest of the board is standard foam and fibreglass so it still has that surfboard flex.

Very slick looking with the orange stripes.

I made 12 of these handplanes and gave 11 away. Should’ve made more, everyone liked the Star Wars shape.

Gees Surffoils you're a design and build resource, wish I had something weird for you to work on.

I’ve weighed the bridge and front foil and theyre 100g heavier (700g) than the original nose (600g).So the weights not going to be an issue and I think I can make a better lighter bridge next time around.

Here's a few lazy flat water testing pics at about 2 metres per second, you can see the front section has already planed and the shoulders of the body arent pushing water. 
 I've got a few videos and a longboard version to show.

It's a unique take on board design SF, never seen the likes of it. Best of luck.

The longboard version is next, taking an 8 footer and deconstructing the design so it fits into a bodyboard bag and is lighter than the original longboard by about a kilo.
