First Shortboard, input appreciated

Okay, so before I start cutting away…

I have a clark blank that is 7’3", lots of rocker. I’ve only done twin fish boards and want to take a stab at a shortboard, with the intention of putting it for sale in the surf shop locally.

So here’s the dims that I came up with:

Length 6’6"

Width 19 1/2"

Nose 12"

Tail 14 1/2"

Squash tail… and I’d like to do a five box setup so it can go quad or thruster.

Would appreciate feedback… will have some pics posted soon. Thanks


that seems really wide, i have never had a thruster over sometihng like 18 3/4 btw what thickness are you going for, maybe something like 2 3/8?
