Can't wait to see what the Black Run looks like.

Agree with A10's volume comments. I like low riders.

So... how's the feel? I imagine the long parallel outline makes it stable. Look's like it turn nicely.

feels good definitely faster than my mk1 that has a lot more rocker so better on the flatter stuff, still super stable very rarely get wet paddling this or mk1. It turns great but all ready planning a new one with a few more subtle tweaks.

That's a beautiful board. I've never ridden a downwind board, but would absolutely love to. Catching the glide looks like a blast. Time to look into it, I guess.

So I sold this board at the end of last year I think so I could do the few tweaks to the design. This board is right on the limit of my cnc with the amount of roof hight I have and the rocker in the board. The blank is 9.75" thick to start with so I worked a bit with Thomas from shape 3D to change the program parameters which has finally allowed me to cut it out! Super excited to have this board ready for the summer sea breez season !

Really like the thinned out nose with a touch of vee for heavy cross wind and chop - kinda reminds me of a narrower faster carbon M-14 with an easy grab SIC handle.  Your last board was a beautiful clean shape that looked like to perform like a champ in a bit of breeze.

While stability is important to us as well - a board must be fast to be fun.  We DW primarily because of the fun factor - and it really comes down to getting our boards to release and jump up on plane for a bit of a thrill.  The feeling of being on ball bearings and a bit out of control is what always brings us back for more.  We have a stable M-14 and Bullet 14V2 so we also rarely get wet - but each one has a very distinct wind speed before they will consistently pop up on plane.

Coming off such a beautiful shape - what sort of tweaks have you incorporated in your latest iteration?   :)

The mk1 and mk2 feels quite similar to ride as a bullet v1 and the m14 however more stable and it copes with cross chop and the messy conditions a lot better. It is actually still a lot of fun in the small stuff as it is super surfy you can go left and right really easy and will go as fast as you can read and react to the little bumps.

This one has had a tiny tweak to the rocker, the bottom of the rail has gone back to the same as mk1 and i have changed the volume of the first 12" of the nose closer to mk1 which was a fraction more than mk2

I have already got a 12'6 and a 16' drawn up and in the weighting along with a narrow 24.5"  14'

You do some awesome work and to share it with others is just neat.  I am amazed at how strong the layups are with the laminates you specified.  How cool!  2 or 3 hours and I will be putting another layer of glass on my molds.  Starting to warm up here, gotta get to work on mine!!!!
