...here s one. These are very big for a gal but very user friendly. You can float, turn. Between 6 and 6 6 would be good but bear in mind that 6 6 is pretty big.
Others may disagree, but I wouldn't go with less than 4" of nose rocker on a shape like this of any length unless the surfer had at least an average level of skill and wave judgement. I also don't think a 135# surfer needs a 3" thick board, either. You need a certain amount of float but after that the surface area will be a factor. A round tail will be easier and smoother to turn even though a little slower under the foot of a novice.
One thing you might consider doing it looking for vids that show the conditions your surfer will actually be using the board in - because as mentioned above that's a big deal - and to find surfers surfing in the manner you expect her to surf the board. Then look and see what kinds of boards they're riding and how those are set up. Look at the various websites of shapers who build the type of board (singlefin midlengths) that you're building to see what they do.
One example that your design reminds me of is a McTavish model
Harbor does their Spherical Revolver
I'm not suggesting you copy anyone, but just watching what other shapers have done, particularly for female surfers, might give you some ideas how you want to go on this one. This article is a bt superficial but there are some observations about female surfers that I think are valid.
Yes, I have a collection of board pics and can see how parallel mine looks. That McTavish 'Rincon' looks nice....Here's a fairly normal summers day at Saunton Sands (her favourite spot).
That Real write up was worth reading, thanks.
Yeah, that's the kind of softball wave that's common where I live. We have bigger/faster conditions, too, but knee-to-waist high is real common. You're already committed to that blank so by all means, finish it, That shape and fin setup will easily handle an overhead wave so long as it's not dumping, so the board will be able to do more than your surfer for a ong time to come. If you did Board #4 as an actual small-wave longboard that would be a 2-board quiver that would work across a large range of conditions at a break like that.
Here's my second attempt at the outline. I've gone back to my original 15.5" tail and it's not quite so parallel through the middle. I've also gone down to 21-3/4 width, which isn't that noticeable but am wondering if I need to go narrower?
That actually looks pretty good. Don't know that I would tinker with it any further.
McDing is a very reputable pro, so when he says it looks pretty good and stop messing with it you should take it seriously.
Not going to comment on the current shape, looks like y'all have it covered, just providing a little "food for thought" for future projects for gals. I had some scrap foam and stringer wood laying about and I decided it could be used to make an 86% sized longboard for girlies. It's 8' x 19", and will ride for a 5' 2" 114# girlie the same as a standard issue 6' 180# guy on a 9' 4" x 22" longboard. Yep, that's all extruded styrene. Other projects keep jumping in front of me finishing it.
Looks great. What sort of rocker dims are you going for?
