    Is there a convention on what the bottom contour of an egg should be?

    On my GH 2+1 egg, it's a bit of rolled entry, flat through midboard until tail, then very slight vee out the tail (picture doesn't capture the vee, gotta measure it to notice)

    However, looking at this thread https://jamboards.com/threads/tell-me-all-about-magic-models.606/page-9#post-122039 the above may not be the conventional design.

    The nose of the board has a 50/50 rail & displacement entry. Mid-board has an uprail & single concave, great for laying it on rail, as was said above. Hard edge down rail in tail w a double concave into the fin cluster & then flat out the back to create better release, tighter turns & acceleration.
    Each of the models: Eggs, Eagle, Magic , & Gypsy have these features.​

    the latter...and if you surf where channels are MIA, for a winter egg pinch the nose a tad so less nose rebound punching back out..

    conversely, for summer, + on the nose width...

    I liked my egg shapes with Avery slight roll into a flat with soft egg rail with a buried edge from just a little bit up from center the more hard from just around the fins and slight v into a tiny lift behind the fin. I should make a disclaimer here been a long time since I rode a true egg shape under 8’6”
