I know this has been discussed in depth and I have done a lot of archiving, but I want to throw my board dimensions out for the expertise to weigh in - thanks
I've always been in love with the retro lis fish boards even though having never surfed one, but decided to make one to surf. At first I thought the fins would be the easy part, but after archiving on here for hours I realized that it seems pretty technical on the fish so looking for help. I really want to do glass on in keeping with the retro look so want to get it right best I can.
I'll start with the board. Like I said it is a retro inspired fish. I am 6'2" @ 210lbs. The board is 6'2" x 22 1/4 x 2 3/4. Tail and Nose at 12" measure 17" and tip to tip on the tail measures right around 12". I've included a pic of the outlone best I can and rocker. It is completely flat across the bottom from tail to about 4' then transitions to a slight concave in the forward section.
I am on the east coast surfing the outer banks 90% of the time.
I've read of the pavels, gepharts, KGs... asymmetrical vs symetrical foils etc... and just really not sure given size, profile, shape, surfing conditions etc... Again first fish and want to get it close at least. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!
Back to archives... I'll come up for air soon. ha
