I am very unfamiliar with the dimensional spectrum regarding said boards. I’ve spent years refining my gunny 7-9 foot tri-fins - I really have a good feel and understanding of rocker template foil rails fins bottoms etc. when it comes to my ‘boards for good surf’
Now I embark into a brave new world: that era of surfing ‘maturity’ when one makes the move to a flat/wide/thick shortboard as an alternative to the longboard for those days when a ‘traditional’ shortboard simply won’t do.
I’m talking about your wave catching slop milking super-paddle machine thats under 7 foot.
So here’s the question:
what kind of designs are you all making for the over 40 crowd?
templates? rocker? Yes fish are making a comeback but what about single/bonzer eggs? seems like a lot of the trends re: dimensions for your older bigger short-boarder would be similar regardless of number of fins…12345?
I would’ve scoffed at anyone who suggested I’d ever order a 21" board or be assessing nose rockers of +/- 3"
now I am THERE and feel a bit lost.
The fist step is admitting it.
