Design Date: May 2017
This new design is the first real rounded pintail kneeboard design we have done and is geared towards more performance in Hawaiian style surf. Hence it is a little more pulled in the nose and tail.
There is a deck concave on this design for a lower center of gravity and more comfort.. The concave area of the deck has been reinforced with a layer of 1/8" DCELL PVC foam as well as a layer of bamboo veneer.
The bottom design features our VCTR bottom, which has a single concave through the nose area, moving into a double concave and then into a bonier-like double channel through the tail. On either side of the channel there are flat panels with a roughly 4º bevel onto which the fins are placed. These panels then provide nice flat surfaces when the board is on the rail allowing the fins and the flat to work together for increased speed and turning performance. The bottom also features a chine at the rail in order to help with transitioning and also to provide extra bite in the rails.
The fins are setup as a quad setup, and in the case of this design will use the new experiment FTP quad set. Boxes are GEARBOX for the best strength and performance.
