That is a short board with a wide width in that photo.

Just curious. Wonder if there is a video on the internet where I can see this make and model of this board "in action"?

It doesn't look it in that pic but the Frank is one fat little board.

I'd like to demo the 7'6 X 29.5 Frank Lean @ 100 liters.

It actually looks pretty neat. It has a lot of width and volume up front to provide stability when paddling but as soon as you get on a plane the rapid narrowing at the tail will make it much more maneuverable. Move forward when the wave peters out and you have a big planing surface again. Swing weight would be my major concern, but that's pretty much most SUP's.

Looks like a handful--perfect for the folks that want to slash up the waves. I wouldn't expect it to be fast, but it should turn and rip, and still have some stability.
