Hey everyone! Hows it going?
I'm currently drawing a shortboard for small waves, something in between what would be a CI Sampler and a CI Neckbeard.
It has a wide tail, but a performance shortboard outline.
I'm not sure what rocker dimensions i should use to make it work in small/mid wave conditions (mostly small). I usually like to ride boards with low rocker in these types of conditions, last board i shaped was a twin fin fish, with 1 1/2" tail rocker, and 3 13/16" nose rocker. Worked very well! But since its a twinny and has more volume and a retro shape to it, i pulled the rocker down quite a bit to these dimensions.
What i'm not sure of, is which dims i should use on this next project. Since it has this performance spring to it, i was thinking of putting some more in. Im currently at a 1 5/8" tail rocker, and a 4 1/8" nose rocker. What do you guys think? should i lower it even more, is it fine or should i pull it up a bit?
Just so you guys know, im aiming for something like the neckbeard in terms of functionallity (if you guys have the rocker dimensions on this one it would help alot!).
I'm 5'10", and weight about 140lbs, My normal performance shortboard has 23.8L of volume and rides insane.
Dimensions on my project: 5'5" x 18 3/4" x 2 3/16" (around 24.3L). Here is a picture:
Thanks! Stoked to hear what you guys think about it!
