Thick Lizzy

Prototype at 7'10 from mid winter 2015

My favorite round pin template used as the nose and tail template to make an identical 50/50 outline.  glider style 70/30 down rails, triplane bottom with deep double concave through the tail.  Was going for a mini-glider kinda thing, with lots of hold and bite on the rail to handle steeper sections - have always liked more foiled out glider type boards, and this proved a good time to explore one.  Vs. the v.bowls - Thick Lizzy rides high on the water's surface and planes out faster in lower-quality surf; can also be cheater-fived for miles.  We've found it to be a good compliment to the v.bowls as a longer alternative with a different approach to rail line and foil distribution.
