Nice looking board mrmike. Is that a piece of the nose turned up to add some nose rocker much like a nose block?

Good to see you can't help yourself again. I'm looking forward to seeing more of these beauties.

After the week-end I plan to post some photos of my new board - a similar planshape, but more stretched out.

can't tell yet surf to small to tell. I have made boards with hoop fins before work good if you get some speed going. I don't keep them long people like them just something different I guess

Lovely looking board Mike, how do the hoops feel compared to finless?
