After few days of paddling and racing it on Saturday at long distance national champs, it is clear that board has too much rocker for flat water. I talked to a guy and he said that vacuum has damaged the rocker and bend the bard. Nose has too much rocker resulting standing more to the front, resulting standing area tilted to the front which stopped water to be drained at the tail and also tail end not touching the water (also due added volume trough whole length of a board). We decided to add drain holes and flatten the tail.

well, the tail was cut off (last 60cm) and tilted so the tail is flattened, but the tail rocker is not nice curved. Also, the water is still stuck (trapped) at the standing area. we just decided to make new board this fall and therefore did not add drain holes.
