So, how will it affect....
« on: January 25, 2020, 01:14:45 PM »
So, if my thickest point on a board is forward of center, how will it affect it? Would it be detrimental, beneficial, or really do very much? This would be on a flatter rockered board for weak, mushy waves. Say the thickest point is 16Ē+ inches forward of center on a 7í10Ē
board. I just donít really have a clue. I thick I could maybe see benefit, but what the hell do I know?
Anyone?

I put my thickest part forward center deliberately because I know I'm heavy on the nose when I ride it.
saved me many nose dives and also helpful when I was not timing the wave well and stepped hard on the nose to help it roll off the the wave last minute save kinda move, but what the hell do I know, I just throw some shit on the wall and see what sticks ;D
Bunch of sh*t that doesn't mean much to most

My imagine board has that extra heft up front and I really like it.

Really helps to paddle as well - at 84 litres itís way easier to manage than a couple of other 100 litre boards that Iíve owned.

Thanks burchas, that was one of the benefits I was thinking of. And, shit rolls downhill....so they say! 8) Just today we had some good offshores and I would step forward and really drive the nose of the board down on the wave. But this board was 9í2Ē. I could see the extra foam on the shorter board being handy for that.

Yeah, supmmm, the board is probably going to be around 90 liters for my 84kg. Thanks! Good to hear. Iíll be anxious to feel the difference.

Ha! No Surfside. He gets the slasher boards. This will be my Geezer Pleaser. ;D
Flatter rocker, carries its width, low tail rocker. Gonna put in channels. Been reading of the benefits of channels in low tail rockers. And Iíve liked channels in boards Iíve done before.....just hate glassing them!
