I always just post pictures but I thought why not start including what I was TRYING to do with small tweaks in the design concept of these boards....
This board has a relaxed elliptical Rocker with a very subtle flat panel (12" wide) blended from just behind the front foot extending out the tail (a sort of triplane). Soft rails taper from the front foot to fwd and aft. The rocker apex is positioned just aft of the plan shape apex. S deck w straightened rails.
For 1st point.
I've been looking for ways to get some planing speed out of my round bottom boards by introducing a subtle triplane to the last half of the board. I hoped it might help me get some extra glide to get back into the pocket from behind the section. Also I hope it will allow me to push the board off the bottom into the high line a little more quickly. I didn't want to make it too prominent as I feared it could mess up the flow. I hope the triplane allows me to correct faster and get back into things. This board doesn't have a lot of rocker. 2 15/16" of nose rocker and 1 7/16" of tail rocker.
The triplane is not noticeable in photos but some of the contours are. I get the best results photographing hulls from a longer distance with a long lens. These were shot @ 215mm
