Since my midlength adaption of the CJ Nelson’s Colapintail, my Corkopintail, was a complete success, I’m thinking about a new HWS, based on the “Haven” longboard.
Anybody there, who can pass me some info on the bottom contours?
Obviously a great front concave, but how is the tail?
I would guess flat, or a slight vee, some double concaves?, or more belly bottom like, sharp rails in the tail???
Some info would be nice, a ride report is highly appreciated too.
Pics show my “Corkopintail” 8’0
The cork works well, no need to wax anymore. I vaccuumed it onto the balsa HWS. Two spots did not bond well, maybe a lack of epoxy, but it will be repaired easily, in the leash area I will reinforce the cork with epoxy too.
Primarily a double to what some call a “triple” due to the tucked under and harderen S rail in the last 10” of the tail.
Thank you very much! Looks that this is more or less the same I expected. Harder Rails, Double Concave (I will design it as a slight vee too; which will be difficult enough to realize as a hollow balsa board)
I will set the tail rocker to almost 3 inches, the front to 4. This is what I guess out of the sideviews and the description.
By now, it is only a project and I’m right in the beginning, if I’m going to build it, it will be summer until its ready. Thinking about a cork deck too, but it will not be wrapped around the entire rail like the “Corkopintail”.
The most interesting question is, whether I will ever be able at least to hang a cheater five. A nice hang ten is more a phantasy, but at least the board should be able to, not necessrily me…
Regarding Rocker, after studying some other noserider shapes and the Haven’s Pics, 3’’ for Tail and 4’’ Front are under discussion; would you more or less reverse the numbers?
4’’ Tail Rocker would radically increase turning capacities and since it should “turn on a dime”, it may be appropriate. 3’’ Front is a common measure for noseriders and the it looks to me, that the flatter, the better, maybe even go for less,… ?
