    Friend of mine hipped me to the magic of the DT Flo Egg a couple of years ago on the West Coast. Been looking for one used for the past couple of years, and last month finally scored this one in "used but not abused" condition for a great deal on CL.
    Rode it today in NY in kind of lumpy high tide waist-shoulder wedges and had an absolute blast.

    Are those 'slots' just above the patch on the bottom? What is the concept/deal with that? No sarcasm, just want to know what the design is supposed achieve.

    Not slots, there is some subtle Spiral V in the tail that the color stuck to, not sure what it's supposed to do, but I do know that it feels good :)

    photo looks like a channel concave. Had a 7'8 board shaped for Sunset and OB with that bottom that worked really well. The concave straightens out the rocker, creating a speed box under your foot, while maintaining the rail rocker.Spiral V spitting double concave does much the same, however makes it easier to roll the board into turns thanks to the V, and does better in choppy conditions as well, my personal fav.

    Not a knowledgeable person with regard to bottom contours, so what is a spiral V (Spitting concave)? And let me know if there is someplace I might be able to look up the concept and have it explained.
    Although surfnfish, your explanation of how and under what conditions the board works is helpful.
