I live in San Diego county and I’ve been lucky enough to meet several Swaylock’s people. My current project is a EPS 7’10" egg. I got the blank and rocker profile from Surf4fins.
MarkSSD (never posts) helped me glue in the stringer.
I’m inspired by Shipman, Resinhead, Keith Melville, and LeeV.
The board is 85% shaped and I want to do a double concave to Vee type of bottom. Lots of rocker nose and tail. At least 5" nose rocker. I don’t have the numbers…Surf4fins do you know???
Board will be aprox 21 1/2 wide and 2 3/4 thick…
Where would you put the fins…Probox for sure…maybe a two plus one set up…
Where would you put the concave.
I’m not a big wave charger like Kieth and Jay. More of a cruiser, waist to head high waves
Share the stoke
that was an 8’ Brewer-Holly template I got at Keith’s. A Resinhead recommendation. I’ll measure the rocker tonight and post it.
Anyone dawn patrolling Sun. and Mon?
Just a suggestion - in my experience concaves into vee cause water flow problems. The channeled water seems to hit the vee and hold up. I’d suggest transition to spiral vee (concaves within the vee, with the rails higher than the stringer) to limit this issue. Spiral vee will loosen up the tail a bit but cut down speed a tad.

I was under the imnpresson that Joe Bark is running double concave to vee in all his paddleboards (atleast where stability is concerned, i.e. kneepaddlers, long range SUP’s…). I wonder if the difference is in the use?
Im told theyre crap your pants fast, but this is just hearsay (not heresey, we still burn people for that)
Ok Ray I’m still try to post the pictures of the glue up.
Just can’t get them to post, picture illiterate.
Will try again.
