7'10 Surfing Tonight at the House

 The surf is crap, but I'm putting my time in learning the new board. Jacky thinks I look better surfing it. To me, I just feel weird. Such a different feel after being on a fish template the last 11 months.

Terrific! now you have to add that board to your long list of boards you had. Do you remember what year you started? I remember starting a little after you
Do you have plans for a 2nd board?

We started in May 2008.

I have plans for a few more. As soon as decide what to shape, I'll shape more.

u started May 2007. you started one month earlier than me, and I know for a fact that I just finished summer #5.

to truly understand it, you have to do incremental designs. change only one thing at a time. thats long process, but the only possible scientific approach, I would think?
My bet your next step will be to make it an inch or two wider...

Alap,

Next step won't be more width. I'm stable regardless of length on anything in the 29.5-30.0 range.

The new board is stable as a house boat. Now that I've got my rough water safety blanket, the next step is likely to push my limits again.

Maybe 7'6 x 29.5 x 4.38
