Bottom Feeder

Bottom Feeder

Our latest board design for riding the smallest waves possible. A board that feeds and thrives off the bottom end of the wave spectrum. I was feeling held back a bit by the wide noses on the Plank and Uber-Plank, and wanted to make a board with more outline curve and no wings, something more elliptical. This board has a lower entry rocker than I have ever done and uses rolled belly to keep it from catching. The belly continues through the center but features a double concave sitting inside it. Which creates a tri-plane hull featuring a soft chine in the rail. This feeds water through the hull and gives it a feeling closer to a concave bottom board. The tail features enough rail rocker and hip to allow aggressive direction changes in tiny surf without losing speed. A am feeling outlines that are more and more clean, with less wings and fancy, trendy tail shapes. This board showcases that concept. It’s designed as a quad, but it can be made a 5 fin as well. I prefer it with Future Fin boxes and fiberglass “controller” fins.
