New board

Unread postby bgreen » Sun Feb 11, 2018 7:08 am

Here is a refinement of board Number5 in the Goddard inspired boards. More volume overall, more volume up front and less deck scoop. The rails are harder than the other board.

So far it's only been ridden finless, but tube rides well. I haven't ridden it in bigger waves but so far it's done what I wanted of it.

What are the dimensions? What is your height and weight?

Board dimensions are approximate as it was cut from the same AKU template as the last 2 boards and then hand shaped.
53.75" x 21" x 1.9" . My dimensions 5'10" x 83 kg (which I think is about 183lbs).

It has more thickness throughout and hence volume than my previous 2 boards.

How do like the deep channels? I have been afraid to go too deep with the single concaves on my boards.

JBW,

I haven't fully tested this board, however, the last two boards on the initial posting of thread (light green board and the orange board)

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=746#p7053

have been ridden in Indonesian tubes and decent sized waves in Ireland. The concaves are part of an overall design. I've only ridden the new board finless, the others I mix it up.

From my perspective these are functional designs. Krusher has seen the orange board in action and Global Ernie, the new board.

I'd love to be able to test it in those North Atlantic gems. Any progress with the move?

As your the guy who seems to be using both finned and non-finned the most. What are you finding from these explorations.

On the same board:

Whats are you finding are the pros and cons of riding them fin and finless?

And if you developed a new iteration of the board do you think the design would have to develop in two different directions to help finned and to help finless? :?
