These lightweight hybrid kneeboard designs are both stable and fast.   The boxed skegs make tracking a dream; and during shaping, the box(es) can be placed further aft for increased tracking or pushed forward for increased maneuverability.   They can be installed as a tri or twin fin setup.   The standard flared nose makes catching waves a breeze and aids forward planing; the pintail template lessens tail drag for speed.   The twin carbon fiber tube stringers are core embedded and make the boards *real* stiff, for down-the-line speed, yet still allow enough flex for bottom turn projection.   These are super FUN *real* kneeboards!
