   9'6" x 32".  V1 was a little wider and weighed 31 lbs.  I wanted V2 to weigh 26 lbs, but the shaper says it came in around 20 lbs.  I'll give it a ride, but I like heavier boards and might have to add another layer of glass to add some weight.  we'll see ...

Linter,

You got a rocker pic?

(I do own a 10'2" Swizzle.  Now that my balanced is so improved from SUP surfing, I gotta get it out and see if I can
hang 5, maybe 10 on it!)

   Steve Brom, in San Diego.  He shaped Con Uglys back in the day and is best known for his fish, the Brom Fish.  Anybody who's thinking of maybe checking him out should PM me first  ;).

   Don't have the board yet, so no rocker pic.  but i can tell you this: it's got a kicked tail and a very flat nose, which is the way I like em.  I was considering one of the new Laird's but, once again, his boards have lots of rocker up front, which most SUPs have but I always find that flatter is better, at least for how i ride.

I've surfed it. And I don't really agree with Linter.
When I first had a look at the board, it didn't really convince me, but I had to try it.

The one I rode was an 8'5 prototype, basically a scaled down version of the production ones. I was told it would be introduced in the market during this year.

It looks like it had a nose very similar to the pocket rocket, with a tail section of either the 7'1 or the 7'4 Pro's.

Quite stable, fast paddling and really nice on a wave. An high performance allrounder with some impressive performance for such an awkward board.

I'm pretty sure that the same philosophy will apply to bigger boards.
