Some New v.Bowls Thang

Troy Mothershead + Pintail variation on the 8' v.Bowls.

I always love watching how the board reacts to different people's styles and the lines they like to draw with the design.  

Versatility in different conditions as well as a very distinct performance when pushed is what I was after when I designed the style of board and this video does a good job of highlighting that when compared to other v.Bowls videos.  Troy's approach is a bit more aggressive off the bottom and projects higher into the wave, showing how an understanding of the board's volume placement and balance can be used to juuust about anyone's advantage.
