    Cool! Very interesting.

    Reasoning behind having the spine centered as opposed to front of center? Looks like leading edge foil and trailing edge foil are symmetrical. Reasoning behind that as well?

    Experimentation mi amigo
    Fins are simply wings turned vertical/ doubt it hit your local library - yes books check out the Aeronáuticas volumes and you’ll see the same lift drag release designs now take pelagic fish check their anatomy - you’ll discover wonderful things
    Why chine a fail? Why put channels in boards? Why use hook rails? All explained in both mediums - should the Peterson rocket fish have worked in 10’ surf- as surfers we should ponder as our forefathers did
    Look at free thinkers like Grahme Attney MP Ekstrom Hammish and reflect on that
    Learning is an on going process not a standard
    Check out Tommy’s Christmas tree board his brother won a world title on I did and it left me baffled yet inspired- without out inspiration why bother? Pushing the limits and exiting the cage of mediocrity is the key
    The mirror of design reflects back on the past which leads to our future
    Like Johnny Kelly with his banana tail rocker in the 60 s

    Remember Bunker Spreckles and what he rode and ripped on
    Open minds bring the un attainable to reality-its a magical thing
    No one person has the answer it’s a collective- one tribe one world
