DW,

Awesome, great job once again. How much do they weigh?

One is 23 lbs, the other 25 lbs. The 23 lb board is full carbon top and bottom, with double carbon in the stance are. The 25 lb board is full carbon top and bottom with double carbon for 90% of the deck. I had some extra carbon, so I used it. Oops! I didn't think it would add that much weight. But even at 25 lbs, it feels like a feather.

How thick are they?

5 3/4, but only 5 in the center (concave deck)

I was wondering why you went with the wide square back on the boards. How does it release in the tail when you're cruising??

Square tails add a ton of stability, allowing me to go much narrower on overall width.

For planing hulls, they make sense. Earlier planing.
