I’m shaping my wife’s first board and want it to be just right in ease and forgiveness.
what kind of bottom contours are y’all with beginner/non-agressive girls enjoying?
She’ll only be out there on mellow days. Think 2-3’. It’s Va Beach east coast beach break and Florida surf.
I was thinking ever so slight concave entry to belly to soft vee to flat. I shaped myself a similar longboard and love it, but I am a little concerned as it likes a little more juice in the wave. Was trying to think of a good way to introduce more planing surface for ease of catching waves but don't want the full spiral vee etc thing going on. Maybe flat entry to belly to soft vee to flat? Or maybe remove the soft vee and transition to flat post belly? Thoughts??
