Here's the rocket fish I've been riding on and off for the last year, now my other fish rebuild is ready to glass and I'm locked down, I thought it would be a good time to do this.
This one is 6x21x2.75. Belly nose to single to double and flat out the tail. 60:40 rails, and pretty low rocker. The fins are bamboo and a smaller template than the rasta keels.
Ive found this board to be great in a range of conditions from 2 foot to head and a half. Not guna lie, on the couple of bihger days I I took it out, I knew it wasn't the right board but it worked. Paddles in really well, probably better wave catcher than my egg. It does in the pocket snaps off the top, you can pump away for speed, and take the board where you like.
However I do have a big issue, when I come off the top to do a cutback and I'm turning through the apex of the turn to begin facing back towards the wave, the nose has a pretty consistent spot where it just washes out on me. This is the same front side and back side, but perhaps happens even more on the front side.
I have a 6'4MB, and was planning to use the template from this, but pull the tail in about half an inch, thus pulling the nose in a little and the mid point. If I do this and thin the foil through the. Nose and tail, will it allow a little more penetration in the tail and more bite through the nose rail?
Or am I looking at this from the wrong angle?
