a rail shot?
still going ultra bade?
Where is the SHE?
Maybe when you have it you can come down to my area at a certain time...
i'd love to try it again on a few more waves.
and fyi; my 7'2" wafer is now at an extreme test track in the hollows of Big Rock and Simmons. (with a bigger fin)
and what waves is Kyle planning on for this one?

Ryan said...

Kyle wants to surf larger waves with more power and be able to muscle the board around more; a bit more aggressive and powerful than the super widepoint forward hulls.
the rails are less bladed, but still very thin; more liddle-esque, but turned down a tiny bit more...where i usually pull moth sides of the rails together to make a perfect 50/50, i pulled the top down a tad more than the bottom.
She is being transferred from Tyler to RT shortly, i was going to take her to Baja this weekend but plans fell through...

kyle..going charger?
ha.
KIDDING!!!

Lightgnar said...

steve i really think youre going to like this board, like ryan said in the write up- it did take on its own life and its a pretty energetic piece. charger? of course man, expect to see me hulling some shipsterns bluff and cortez bank here once we get the boats up and running. but seriously, i told ryan i wanted a board that i could ride in shoulder-a couple overhead, and the spots i envisioned in my head were head high+ malibu, peaky barreling RJs, and 2-3ft overhead rincon...(just to give you an idea.)

(THE SIDEBITES LOOK SO F-ING RAD in the second to last photo!!!)

No leash? Ok, and thank you.

warm jet said...

thanks kyle.
i'd love to see it.
i sent ryan an email about juanita going extreme. (for a hull)
my nutty friend brad has her in dredging reef break.
(not a welcome visitor in the land of the twin, she held her own and blew some southern minds)

warm jet said...

oh and sorry..leash necessary there.

Lightgnar said...

so about the leash... ryan cored the foam, but glassed over it so its still a solid deck. just in case, we could just drill the glass and throw a plug in for that 'one day'...

Lightgnar said...

and steve- thats real neat to hear about brad. do you happen to have any photos (please, please, PLEEEAAASSEEEEE!) of brad charging those dredgers??? if so, i know i for one would L O V E to see that. should be buzin' this week/end, hope to see hippy johnny and you as well sir...maybe a moonlight session...

Great friggin' template. Kyle and
Ryan- think hard and feel hard on fin placement- it becomes way more critical with the tail-drivey template. Ryan-how's yer head? obviously still functional-BJ

Lightgnar said...

brian- funny you brought that up, as ryan and i were just talking about that exact thing while we were choosing fins. we agreed on an 8" flex, and figured we would try it around the center in the box for the first run... and then take it from there wave, after wave..

Ryan said...

heyo!
my head is doing well, trying to get in the water today for the first time since then; just need to find some waves!!

Hull at the lobster lounge. I need pics. Otherwise it didn't happen;)

Hilbatron 3000 said...

8" sounds like a good starter. My
fave on a narrower tail is an 8.5
widebase- gives back some drive
you might have lost with the
surface area. At last! the wind dropped, but so did the H2O temp!
