I've been working on this board for the big guy for a while now, I'm just so slow. It's an evolution of a board I did back in 2010 and which I used as a test mule for several different ideas, some working out better than others. I've been following a McCoy-type design track with getting the volume to ride on top of the wave, rolled/domed vee, etc.; but with more of a hull-type entry and rocker. On this one I added a little more nose rocker, narrowed the nose a little and put a 5" flat spot in the tail block. Only when I got done with it did I realize the similarities in the template with a couple of the other designs that are en vogue right now, so I'm sure they were also of influence. The bottom is still more of a McCoy/hull mashup if that makes any sense.
