"that is the most fun SUP I have ever surfed" - Brad Jones

My opinions so far, a short board bottom (no V) requires more toe pressure to lean into a turn, but the reward is crazy amounts of explosive power and speed. With a V bottom you can roll into a turn without much effort, but then the speed is gone on exit, with pumping your ass off to recover the lost speed. We just don't have many days with power in our wind driven waves. This short board bottom changes everything. Not only do you explode off the bottom, but you rip the inside wave remnants most boards just coast and cruise on.

Brad said the board rewards those who know how to surf. Translation "surf the tail" and you shall terrorize the waves.

Jacky did surf her board today! I just didn't get any great photos.
