I'm thinking about my next board and I recently came across a series of photos I've never seen before. They are of an Aviso Dick Van hydro hull that Rasta made popular. I had an idea for a while about of channel bottom contours that were inline with the fins, but more like flat planes and then having the chines in the rails. Kind of taking what Tomo is doing, and what Yorky is doing, and blending that into a more traditional hydro plane like bottom like what Jeff Alexander did with his Gemini. Then I see these pics and I'm thinking this is pretty close to what I had in my head.
I'd like to put this bottom on board with a reversed Omni outline. Slightly pulled in nose and wider rounded tail, or a rounded diamond/square. I don't want the wider nose. My last couple of boards have wide rounder noses, and I want to get back to less width up front. Looking at something about 6' x 20" x 2.5", probably have to make it a quad because I'm not fond of twins, maybe a 3 fins across like the Griffin hovercraft. I'm having fun with that.
Does anyone have experience riding one of these, have any comments?
