The Naish Nalu 10 x28 1/2 loks pretty cool.  I just get the sense that the bat-tail is a little gimmicky but you never know.
As a lot of you know, with the "Performer" range of longer boards the designs are basically a hybrid of a long and short board. They're not going to turn like a short board, but you can still make a carving bottom turn. They won't glide like a longboard, but glide and hold speed better than a short board. You can hang 5.... Maybe.. No real nose riding, but you'll survive most late drops. They always have side bites and sometimes quad set-ups.

The 10' x 28.5 is almost exactly like my 10' x 29.5 Coreban Icon. The little Bat-Tail is gimmicky, but it's a fun board. This thread got me thinking about making a trade with my little brother to get my hands on that 11'4 Nalu that he almost never uses???? I know he wants a 14' race board???? Nothing like a lopsided trade with your little brother ;D

Good point TD, I had an Icon for 4-5 years, and the swallow tail worked really well.  I rode it mostly as a quad.
