This customer wanted a “step down” board from he is currently riding and decided on a more performance shortboard shape. I shaped a slightly wider nose outline and moved the wide point up a bit and added more curve in the tail area. The bottom has a med single concave and flat off the tail. Relaxed entry rocker and tail rocker with a flat area under the chest will help him get into waves easy. Although it looks like a standard shortboard, it is a lot easier to paddle and more forgiving to ride. I took out as much unnecessary “bulk” but kept it where it is needed for this customer. I glassed it with 4x4oz deck with a kevlar tail patch and 4oz bottom epoxy resin on PU foam. I shape and glass all of my boards so I have better control over the final product.
