Burchas, I get it and it is really close Maliko. The thing I've found is as you stretch these boards longer the volume placement needs to be adjusted. The area with the largest amount of volume in the nose I've heard other shapers call it 'Recovery Volume'. If it is too far forward, it feels like you either need to stand more forward or back on the board. Like you can't find that middle spot to just stand. Once you move that Recovery volume back away from the nose, the board sort of balances out. There is a similar effect at the tail, but it's less noticeable due to the smaller volume inherently at the tail. As you extend into the unlimited lengths, this becomes even more pronounced.
It's not overhead to me!
8'8" L-41 ST and a whole pile of boards I don't use.

TD, now that you mentioned that, it make sense. Stretching the board
by 2 feet while keeping the same profile means that I'm now standing
one foot further from the nose bulk which will make the board harder to
control and like you said, behave differently.

I've make the correction and it looks much more balanced which also led
me to streamline the nose even further and I like much more now.

As for contours, double concave to a V with sharp rail line seems to be
the trend these days.

I was thinking a V to a single concave to a V for this board. have the concave
release at the back 1/3 of the board to a deep V. Riding few more board
the next few days. Maui is a good place to test shapes in various conditions.

Is that rocker measured of a naish or just  I guess of what it is?

Starting point was a replica of the Naish 3D rendering. I've increased
both nose and tail rocker since I have more board to work with.

This is some nose you got on that board. I like it.

Surfski nose, DW SUP tail  :)

I actually keep the nose of my flatwater 18' with a little more rocker
