2017 Puma... really liking this shape
« on: September 21, 2016, 06:45:24 AM »
Just go a glimpse at the new 2017 NSP Puma 14x24. It looks exactly like the shape I was thinking about
for a custom board...

Looks like a good balance for the volume distribution, nose volume not exaggerated and nose kick seem to be perfect as well for my needs.

To seal the deal,  a rounded bottom.

Fin forward placement seems to sway from the common practices as well.

Anyone has insight about the rail shape, volume and weight for this new boards? couldn't find official data on that.

I have what i believe is the same shape board, or very close to it in the 2016 model. But mine is 14x28". It was called the Open Ocean downwind for this year. It has honestly become my "go to" board for all all but the biggest conditions. I LOVE the volume. And it seems to surf pretty well, even though i stink at surfing. :)

I'm 6'4" tall and 217 pounds.

So what's the volume and weight on your board, can you describe the rail shape from tail to nose, or even better, few pics?
