Tail volume will be added later with 'horizontal tail drainage'

drainage test:



It works well- the deck is inclined enough to drain water fast enough. Now, tail volume will be added.

Why would you add that big block? The only way it will add buoyancy is if it's under water.

Since the board dynamically pitches from nose to tail when you’re paddling hard, that block would help resist the tail being pulled down and creating drag or creating a poor release.

well, for my level of paddling... i will go with more simple answer: Because I want that block as it was planned. Once its finished, I will post a video hows paddling- let say at 10,5km/h to see how it paddles&reacts at bit faster speed.
