okay , so a friend had a 7’er [from the '70s] I liked the look of …
[ And at present , I have an 8’ blank .]
He did this asp3000 thingy for me , when I gave him some measurements , just to be able to see what it would look like ! [thank you “anonymous friend”…you can ‘chip’ in [hahaha] here if you want to reveal your identity !]
So, I was just wondering what people thought of the outline ?
I’ll never charge macking 10-15’ North Point or Margarets or Bells on it …it’s just for 6’ and a bit more [overhead by a foot or two perhaps] waves. [ I know …I know…say what you will , whatever !!]
The wave faces here are pretty choppy when winter comes …either howling offshores , or sideshore [mostly sou-sou’westers in winter] …and often backwashy to boot ! […sounds fun eh ?!] Beachbreak stuff , mainly , but it gets hollow and thick in winter . [I have videos]
I was thinking a fairly flat bottom , maybe a LITTLE double concave… or, vee maybe ?
Again , I will put in a 12" finbox , and possibly a couple of side plugs at a later date …
Rocker , rails , width, fin[s] placement suggestions much appreciated . Thanks !
[This will be the longest narrow board I have ever ridden , by about a foot . At the moment , I fluctuate between mainly the 6’5 bonzer bottom , and the 5’7 “stubbie”. ]
In winters past , I have ridden my 7’ single fin .
I am around 5'10 and 145 lbs ... think , Rob Machado's size . [but not a goofyfooter ] any input much appreciated ! [ And , any other aps sketches in this 8' x 19"-20" range WELCOMED, also ...] ....thanks ! ben
p.s. - if I didn’t want it to be such a ‘double ender’ , I’d definately put a wing in it , and perhaps round the nose [and / or tail] a tad …
So, where do you guys with winged pintail guns place your wings, mainly ? how far up from the tail tip ? … does between 4 - about (max) 10" sound a reasonable sort of range ? [I’m not thinking “moonrocket” , or ‘stinger’ …yet ! ]
