    This one should be pretty interesting. 7’7” x almost 24” wide stringerless v bottom stubbie. Super solid glassjob. Very thinned turned up rails. Not much rocker at all.

    You know, that's actually a really good point...push it to the extreme either way and dial it back to where it works...happens in most fields...

    intended as humor, which is sometime lacking on these threads... have a dozen boards from 7'8 to 9'8 split between my home in Oregon and son's in HMB, and whereas every one of them has a lotta V bi-secting double concave tails, a V bottom they are not...

    BTW, fun session with Lee L yesterday, the new pop not getting as much water time as he used to...than our swell banged up to 10@20 today, and that was that...

    This board has some pretty substantial v out the tail. 8’, skinny nose, wide point way back, really flat and bellied. Pretty full pinched 50/50 all the way.Kind of shapes it on a weird whim, had a blank kicking around for too long threw some numbers down and dropped one of my pig templates on it...fit perfect. This was a week before a two week trip from Oregon to Southern California. Kind of had the trestles hike in mind...needless to say paddles close to my big boards, and surfs almost the same but everything is faster and smaller. Thinking about another but might throw a box in it... 3413DBEE-DCFF-41C1-B4BA-8A6702683FD4.jpeg 2190E942-AE71-4ED2-82E0-90AEC1F6B2F5.jpeg

    This will get you 5-10 on Riker's Island if the Leash cops see this. ie. probable cause offense
