That board looks so rad...I see that this would be a major difference from how my board is setup. Dango...
It's just one possibility. He's got a couple other designs that suit his style. You might check out his website for some of his other designs.
Or, perhaps a different direction entirely, like a MyCoy type design. He does a fat assed board with a flat tail rocker and he puts the volume underfoot, except you surf those more off the tail. But it's a comparable situation as far as riding them goes - you pop up and surf the board from one position and without moving around. He does these as singlefins or thrusters, but they'll also work as a 2+1 or quad (I liked the quad setup best myself).

I sorta see these as a Simonsish high perfomance 1958 surfboard with a few twists..This is a 6'6" HULLYGULLY I ride a 7-6 and a 8'8". Not really a flat rockered hull did not want that. I really like how they ride. But I am old what do I know..
ACE - mucho bueno. Love to ride that thing!

Geeze those boards are nice ace. Don't you have a twingle board similar to the last one in your pics? How's that first board ride with that fin? I'm guessing there's not much rail turning on that one.
Send me your dinged, damaged, and yellowed.
You guessed wrong on no rail turns. That was something I wanted to keep in the boards. One reason for moving the fin back was to be able to set a good turn. Rail shape in the last part of outline contributes to that as well. I did not want a top turn only board. The KEEL fin works really good in the board. I have tried several other "normal" fins and it does what I want. When it is in the right spot you can feel the fin entering a turn following through the turn than exiting the turn. Plus it does some nice functional speed pumps. Pretty sure the pictures are same board with a couple different fins. I have a couple more upright fins that work too for people the KEEL scares off. But after trying lots of em I like the KEEL best and have designed the board around that fin..Here are some pictures of a recent fresh shape that hopefully shows all the contours..https://flic.kr/s/aHsmDSHvBi... Hope that works.
