First of all a big thank you to everyone who contributes to this amazing repository of board building knowledge.
This is #9, and I was pretty happy with how it was going until I surfed it. it is 5'9 x 20 1/2" x 2 3/8". Mckee quad setup and I put a wing on as a bit of a challenge. First time pigment.
Whenever I try to put it through a turn it seemed to suck water and want to sink, causing me to nurse every turn heavily.
It seems to be the rocker, or lack of (lesson learned). I have tried with smaller fins in the back, which seemed slightly better, but not a major improvement. I am think now either just two fins, some tiny nubs in the back, or maybe building a hard edge right up the length of the board...unfortunately I don't have a bunch of small fins for testing.
I would be gutted to have to get rid of this, but at the moment it is no fun to surf.
I am open to ideas anyone may have to improve the performance of the board, or perhaps a better trained eye can see there is something else causing this to be a dog.
