I had in mind more sweep, more base, less height, and mounting them in reverse from what's shown there, come to think of it
BUMPED UP, FOR DAVID IN SPAIN. PM to forum member OLLIE, to see if he will re-post some photo's of his board.
SHAPER SINCE 1958
Thank you, Bill!
Didnt know this thread existef, I will study it for a while, thank you all too
Check this out. The first shot is Emmerick, a lifeguard on Oahu. He makes these boards that can be ridden from either end. This black board is under 6' and maybe 18" wide. He has a 7'6" single fin that is set up to be ridden with the wide point forward or reverse for the wide point behind center. Very low rockered boards.
Another video with Emerick Ishikawa surfing one of his double ender boards. This board is 7-6 and the design is a wide tail back or wide tail forward single fin. Unfortunately, OTW snapped it in half.
6'10" x 23"x 2.75". assist build with a newbie to building boards. Started with 8'0"arctic PU blank, hand shaped, balsa top and bottom with paulownia rails. going to pop with glassing. Confusing tail and nose every step of the build.

Another nice one Charlie. Is that you in the surf shot? Outer reef outside your house.
Hi Harry, hasn't been that big behind my house since 1995. jan 12th or 13th at Himalayas, more towards John brown's than Lani's, too much north in swell. Photo taken by tow partner. Prone paddlers having all the fun.
Never surfed Himalayas, Lanis was always good enough and back in my time (late 70s), and it didn't get too crowded. Back then only the serious watermen surfed Himalayas and Avalanche. Long paddle out and long swim if you get nailed. I never wore a leash in big waves, preferred swimming.
One of my childhood friends passed away, and the service was last weekend. Her little brother had a boat and used to surf the reef passes at Hickham Harbor. Only good when town is maxed out, but that's when the outer reefs start pumping. 2013 was an epic year for the outer reefs at Shark Country, but it was even better in the regular break.
