4'10

Unread postby Pes78 » Tue Nov 07, 2017 12:22 am

Have a board in the works being shaped by Tony Caramagna of TC Surfboards. Tony grew up in the Point Loma and Sunset Cliffs area here in San Diego and has made kneeboards before. He is very easy to work with and I feel I was able to tell him what I have trying to do in my shaping. He was very open to trying out something like this. The concave isn't very deep 3/4" of an inch in the center. The thickness out at the rails is 2.5" and the width is 22" wide. Length is 4'10" and he put his channel fish bottom on it. It has about a .25" concave running the length of the board going into a double through the fins, have it set up as a quad. Will ride this prone as well, just not feeling the shaping anymore. Trying to have a one board quiver which I know is impossible but with what I have planned for the future I may not have the space for multiple boards.

Photo angles can be so deceiving... looks like a round bottom to me!

Looks to me as if it is on the racks w/ deck down so round deck and complex concave within a concave bottom

Actually it has a concave deck and that is in the pic in my first post. Will post another pic of the deck and the bottom tonight

Looks good Paul. But if you knee ride it, you will be banned from this forum.

Running it as a quad but wouldn't be opposed to going finless. Getting a set of the Lovelace Piggyback quads.
