Latest board from Chris Garrett

Here is my latest board by Chris Garrett AKA Phantom northern NSW.

It is a little thicker than the previous board and the concaves are deeper. It is 54" x 21' A bit over 1 7/8 at it's thickest.

It rides a bit different to the previous board, but I need to surf it more to see it's full range. The previous board is the best I'd ridden, especially in barrels. The fin slots were meant to be at a different angle. I'd only ridden the previous board, twice with fins and they seemed too close to the wings.

That looks nice, Bob. Looks like it ought to go like a bat even without fins.

That looks like some fun.
Paipo surfer in repose,
Nose on the nose,
No grunting he-man pose.
See how fast he goes!
What is it he knows?

interesting...I like the bottom contours and the foil :D I like to use FCS Fusion plugs which come with a choice of fin cants, 0, 5 & 9 which allow me to counter the impact of the tail concaves on fin cant.
