Thanks Warren that thing is sweet looks pretty eggy to me, the Forstalls are real nice boards! Always drooling over those that Revolution posts. I'm the same age and weight, that seems like it has a ton of foam. Thanks for the pics, looks pretty high perf with the outline and rocker. Any idea on the side bite placement on your board, I've got the thruster thing down just no idea where to start with the 2-1 other than the single box.
yes, I guess its a lot of foam but I seem to prefer more foam in the smaller surf, thing paddles nuts and I can duck dive it real easy, the lighter eps is good too imo, its the only eps/epoxy board I own, I tend to prefer standard poly boards, but this board really turned out nice; I am not a shaper, kind of just a sideliner that enjoys reading, talking, seeing the boards being built here etc, so I am not real sure about fin measurements, sorry, be happy to try to take some measurements, but you'll have to pm with directions on how to measure it properly....yes, pretty silly, but i need help screwing in a light bulb. I'm sure if you ask revolution he'd follow up with you on the fin placements
I could have gone thinner, narrower, shorter, but I got this board for the real low end, and it is hp although it may not look it, I throw it around and it's real fast, very pleased with this board for its intended purpose..I can choke up on the nose and pretty much do cheater fives on this thing as well
most of my boards are what most would call tanks or overfoamed or whatever, but my local surf is waist to shoulder high on average; I generally ride 22-23 wide, 3 inches thick or thicker; I am plenty capable of riding much less, but when i show up at the beach I know I'm having fun and zipping around no matter the size of surf locally
I mind my manners and follow the rules, but I'm not 22 yrs old and 155 pounds, so I'm happy to compete with them in the lineup and jockey for waves on shapes that allow me more horsepower
this is about fun right?
