New Board is finished! L41 S5 2015 tomo inspired model
« on: February 16, 2015, 02:07:44 PM »
So.....this looks finished and I can't wait to ride it!
Me 5'8" 190lbs give or take. 

Reg "short board" style sup waters edge black tip 8'6" x 29 x 4 111Lt.

Performance Long board style KingsSS 9'2"x 29.5x 4.1x 119lt

This yellow thing 7'4"x4 3/8x 27 3/4x 107lt

Curious about the performance and the stability, should be enough foam, the 8'6" floats me very well and is pretty darn stable considering the performance I'm can get out of it.  One way to find out....

You may not even need fins!  Wow, those channels are so interesting.  Plenty of release of that tail.  Can't wait to hear what it surfs like.

It'll be quadzilla with optional nubster! Possibly try thruster as well.  Yeeeewwww!

Dave that's a sweet looking board, very much looking forward to your review.

Just for some context....Are you an East Coast or West Coast surfer? I'm very interested in this style board but have questions on how suitable it would be for the Northeast.

Pretty good things come out of L41 land.....Great Job! Kirk.

Ake G,
  I am an east coast surfer, in the Jacksonville beach area. I had been living on the west coast of FL in Tampa.  Needless to say I'm pretty happy!  I missed the east coast!

So sick. So jealous. Stop rubbing it in brah.....

Why not go thruster? Daniel Tomo Thompson rides his as a thruster.

Regardless, that thing looks like it will rip, hard..

Thruster will be explored for sure!

Do you prefer quad over tri?

I just think that thruster draws tighter arc and turns easier.

Usually a thruster type, but it really depends on the board. I think the nubster will be interesting too!

Or if you get really bored one day, and waves are tiny, just take the rear out and leave the nubster in.

Can you take one pic sideways? So we all can see the rocker?
