Meet Murray





Okay...heres a mindfuck that I finally got to put into foam after a few weeks of brainstorming.

5'10 x secret x 2 1/2" hull for beachbreaks/reefs...essentially.  the basics are; pulled in nose (16.5"), hip on the back foot, a bit flatter deck but still domed, foiled down rails with a lot of bite in the back end.
The bottom is a hull to triplane that fades off at the hip/fins, a single concave starts just ahead of the fins and accelerates out the tail; providing a good squirt off of the back foot for quick direction changes.  What i'm trying to accomplish is an accelerated tail rocker when you want it, and a hull rail line with release and pivot off of the tail plus an easy entry.

The fins are going to be tall flex fins, like chubby L-flex fins, with a tiny bit more base...or kinda stretched out MR style twins.  

I named him Murray.
