    Nice boards, the balsa is beautiful!

    Unicorn or Albatross?

    Indeed gives one much to ponder.

    Very cool how he wraps the fin over the tail. Awesome.

    Just recognize it is not the urban dictionary’s 2nd definition of an albatross

    I borrowed one a few years ago for my pig, not as much rake on the leading edge, and it was surprisingly loose, pretty much what you said. Almost bought a custom one from Bill Thrailkill that he build years ago, but the price was too much for me so I stuck with my "D" that Jim made for the board. Andrew had a glass on on a Phillips Pig, but I think he sold it a few years ago. If nothing else, it sure started a lot of conversations when I'd take it to the beach.

    I hear that. That was my point with this brom board. No rub out on it. The tape bead and all the gloss spikes are on it, with the wax brush strokes. Turbo branding and an extreme fin.

    I’m just psyched it functions.

    Is the leading edge of the reverse D straight or concave?

    Ouch! I'd hurt myself on that. Ride on! That's what they're made for.
