What a fantastic fulfilling hobby creating your own surfboards and the anticipation for the first test ride gives me goose bumps. Nobody seems to get this wing thing but when they light up down a wave face it is thrilling .This board is the longest most buoyant I have made. North Sea pleas bring waves

doing your own thing is so so cool! Its great to witness as well.

I was trying to process this and had this thought.. My Bonzer has fins set at 18 degrees in part to better engage to the angle of the wave when not going straight. In a sense you just take this one step further, I have this image of you going down the line with the fin straight into a steep face and only a sliver of the rail.

I'm thinking an X-wing fighter hooked up with an orca and this is their love child!
