Not sold on the profile. Haven't surfed it yet. However. I'm amped to get to ride it soon.

Not sold either. It's the pointy nose on a retro style. It's all about function though, so you won't know till it's wet.

Good job regardless. Every board is a learning experience, and knowledge gained.

This is going to sound extremely biast... but...

I've been surfing for a long time. This by far is one of my favorite boards I've ever surfed. I've let a shaper buddy of mine ride it a few times, and he just said "Either you got extremely lucky, or you know what your doing".

Just shaped another one for my first paying customer!!! :)
