I like it.... Just a little too low in volume for me ::) Might see you at Doho if we get that swell later this week.

This shape scales very well and makes for a great SUP board due to the increased volume up front.  The pulled in tail and high tail rocker really make it really lively.   I like it so much I think I am going to also build it in 6-9 and 7-0 lengths.     My old Greedy Beaver had a similar shape and tail rocker and that was also a great board.

I really like this board so I sold the orange Tic Tac (v2) and added some traction...

I saw your orange board on CL under surfboards... which is a smart thing 8) I think labeling it, stickers and logo gives it a professional finish. Which it is. Much easier to sell I that way. I saw Dave Boehne prone surfing at Old Man's on Monday, and he was riding a very similar shape. His was a little shorter and the nose and tail were pulled in just a little more. I think they call it their 'Twin Pin'?

I have had good luck selling my boards as mini-mals or big guy shortboards.   They usually sell in a couple of days.  The orange Tic Tac sold to the same guy that bought my old 7-0 x 24 Greedy Beever.

The double ender is a great shape.  Just change the rocker and length to width ratio depending on what you want to use it for.  Short and wide with low rocker for grovelling (i.e. Lost Bean Bag), narrow and long with high rocker for high performance (i.e. Firewire Hydronaut) or anything in between.
