My New Toy

Any discussion on shaping, designing, repairing and riding surfcraft of any type or shape. Also a good place to ask the 'what board should I buy?' question.

That looks super FUNktional. Ride report would be awsome please. Is that wide point all the way back or just photo trickery? The outline, tail and fin set up just look perfectly balanced.

What's the width, rocker/bottom and rails like?

If there is one word that would describe shapes done the way Forstall likes them it would be balance. If he put the wide point back it is because he knows my taste in boards and how I surf as we have been friends for over 30 years. I even let him choose the fin placement on this one. I usually choose my own with Quads, but he has been doing them for awhile lately and I haven't been on them since the mid nineties. I'll definitely post a ride report since it's so different than what I normally ride. It also has Steve's new rails he calls Lazor Rails. So far everyone that has ridden them has loved them. A couple of the surfers riding them are pro class talent and they love it. We will see how us mortals like it once I ride it. :-)

Also thank you for the compliment...here are dims.6'6'' x 23.15, nose and tail, 18.75'', 3.35

Damn Rev- that's 3 really nice boards in a row posted- Good work! Between this and the Frankenmini I'd think you'll have a really good range of conditions covered and be having some really good days!
