pics of the fins or it didn't happen...really nice board BTW, makes me want to stand upPersonally I think it was a mistake to trade the carvefor the snap
When I made a 6' 1" thruster in '81 I was subconsciously resisting the snap. I shaped a vee in the nose (hullish) and kept moving the fins forward, eventually going to Bobby Owens "Boomerang" fins. (More hullishness) Now I realize that I was trying to find the "carve" sensation and use the length of the rail to drive the turns. When I bought a VHS tape of "Innermost Limits" a number of years later, I was puzzled by a sense of familiarity with the surfing. I finally figured out what the familiar sense was about. Those Aussies were surfing off of their front foot, engaging the rail line!I can't wait to ride this shape! George aka SpeedshaperOnce you carve, the snap pales to insignificance.
