I'm looking to get into shaping my own sticks via CNC cutting and wanted to ask opinions on a few aspects before diving in.
I have come up with a template for a smaller wave groverler roughly based on the CI Rocket Wide. I understand CI uses some non-stock rocker and channeling but I was hoping this shape would be a good place to start iterating from.
With this cut I'm just going with a vanilla single concave through the board with a flat exit.
Dims: 6'2" x 21 1/16" x 2 13/16" | 1' Nose: 13 3/8 | 1' Tail: 15 7/8
Surfer: 6'1" at 205 lbs
- Rocker Profile: I tried not to deviate too much from the stock, but can anyone expand on red flags when it comes to nose rocker profile and width? If the width to rocker depth ratio is too high it'll plow, correct?
- Concave: Is it worth it to try and blend concaves with CNC cuts or should I just focus on cleaning that up in the bay? Are there any good resources that discuss concave at CNC level precision or should I just go out and start collecting data? I'm curious what an ideal single to double concave would look like from an X/Y axis. i.e:
1' Nose: Flat
2' Nose: -1/16" to rail single concave
Wide Point: -1/8" single concave (start double blend)
2' Tail: -1/4" single concave (+1/8th double at middle point between rail and stringer)
1' Tail: Double concave exits
Any advice would be greatly appreciated,
