From the guy who brought you shortboard foiling in 2008.
A New Surfcraft Concept that creates a 'flexible' design.

Grab your popcorn, what you see is going to challenge your beliefs.
Haha thats how I felt when I first saw an alaia, and my first view of a foil board. Got my popcorn, looking forward to this...
Thanks Huck, I'm guessing some will be stunned at first.
But it brings design elements from body boards, foils, short and longboards, peanut boards and multi-hulls.
I've got a tame test rider lined up.
Looking forward to seeing the final physical form of your prototype concept.

Oh man, this is gonna be good. But why the wait?
It's not your 'body foil', is it?
I can't wait.
Send me your dinged, damaged, and yellowed.
Not the bodyfoil.
This is for shortboard surfing.
You'll love it.
But in your first post you said it was for longboard and shortboard surfing? Is it some sort of mini-foil fin replacement? A surfboard in multiple pieces? (no, already done)?
Can I keep guessing or should I shut up?
When's the due date???
I looked at the modern surfboard as the pinnacle of design evolution, every square inch has been refined to an amazing level where shapers and riders can make it do amazing things. So I thought what are the Essentials of a surfboard, short or long, what are the design points, areas and dims that you cant ride a standard surfboard without ?
Sure a hydrofoil replaces a surfboard completely but staying with the planing hull style of surfcraft, what are the Essentials ?
Do you need a Wide Point ? Not really because Peanut boards have 2 .
Do you need a finely foiled and tapered nose ? Well no because Tommo can do it with a cutoff diamond point.
How about rocker ? Do you need all that nose rocker or just under your feet ? Because rockers gone from flat to Genie Boot and maybe a continuous rocker is just a product of a shaping a single form ?
And yes my board is more than one piece but not connected like Lego.
Tease, show us some pics, drawings or something.
