Finally got some pictures of the new board to post. I've ridden this board for the last 2 weeks in surf from 2 feet to about 5 feet and I'm learning how to really enjoy it. I've learned to stay on the tail so I can use my weight to drive off the bottom and really how to pump across the wave face. Trim in only a short step forward and really it can be ridden is juicy surf without moving the feet at all...something new to my longboard style. I have found it to be very fast, super loose and turny and easy to paddle. The low rocker is not a problem on late drops. I can now make sections that before would have taken me out. I think the extra rake on the fin gives the board a little extra drive out of the bottom turn, because when done smoothly, I can really feel the board accelerate back up the face. So I'm pretty stoked with the performance of it. Eddie of Island Influence told me his old-school shaper's forumla for placement of a fixed fin. Definitely works Eddie!
