Re: Asymm

Well... Lots of interesting comments although i'd have to err/agree on the those thoughts about a "favoured" rail type and length. As I said, it's got a lot going on as I was interested to see what would work and what would not....all the weirdness going on in the design. Some of it may work, some m...

Re: T-Belly Gen 4x

I love this thread...really interesting to see the evolution and thought behind it all...I just finished shaping a "rabbits foot" style finless and had similar thoughts about rails and concaves which gave me a real headache thinking about "correctness".... ended up with pinched chines in areas and s...

Re: My lates Wing board

Dunno,

I really like your work....is really innovative in my view......I reckon u could sell a few. Problem is people are always afraid of change regardless of whether something works. Send one to the UK for a test ride... :D

Re: My lates Wing board

As I say...really nice....if I had less projects already underway I'd love to build something like that for myself. My kid was drooling over it....likes the grey F16 style paint scheme !!

Keep it coming !!

Re: Sea Sled

the board in the background is my sons first effort...he wants to make a mini simmons but I wanted him to learn the basics of shaping first before he farts up a proper US Blank ....its pretty wide but he's six foot two and gangly so it suits his length....ive made some speed keels for it off Rastovi...
