@ SouthCounty

I'm going to make a suggestion.

Since you like a surfing sup, you might want to look at a Blue Planet "Easy" model. It's specs are 10'2" x 32" x 4.5" @ 181 liters. The link to it is below.

https://www.blueplanetsurf.com/102-x-32-easy-2019.html

It comes in different colors, has a hybrid nose and as a bonus, it has 5 Futures fin boxes. A hybrid nose is not as pointy as a pulled in nose and not as wide as a nose rider.

A video of the Easy surfing the waves is below.



Below is another video which shows the Easy model in more detail. The video is about 3 years old and at that time, it was in the Ala Moana series, but it is now in the Cruiser series.



BTW, all of my sups have 5 fin boxes and having a sup with 5 fin boxes has "spoiled me". Having 5 fin boxes will, in my opinion, cover just about any wave you will encounter from tiny to head high, slow to fast speed wise.
Blue Planet Duke: 10'5" x 32" x 4.5" @ 190 Liters
Sup Sports Hammer: 8'11" x 31" x 4" @ 140 Liters
SUP Sports One World: 11'1" x 30" x 4.5" @ 173 Liters

This is what I've been looking at, haven't had a chance to demo it yet but its the Infinity wide aquatic 10'4 x 32 its classified as a utility board built with a true surf rocker. Im just not sure yet?
Haven't seen that before anywhere else on a production board? ? ? ? 
Is that more like a SIC handle or is it more like the one that Robert at Blue Planet has?
.about time.....I just don't see how this isn't standard issue but I might be missing something.

I've seen a couple of boards this shape now.

Hypr Nalu have the gun and other similar shapes.
Nah Skwell have the Fluid which I was looking very closely at.
Infinity now.
