Sort of looks like a thin low volume firewire vanguard.

I've certainly taken some inspiration from those boards.... also the nomad boards and mako's. Smear them altogether and you have something close to this.

I think you need to make a few and sell them.

Maybe in the future. I don't have the equipment to punt out retail quality boards at an economically viable speed.

Just seeing it made me giggle. Yeah thats the one

The wingaling was probably to just draw the heat off of that beuty.

So ever think of upping the anti? Make a mutant/double board? Could even go for 4 different boards in one!

Flyboards and Nobile IIRC have done asymmetric boards for ages. Just not so...odd looking.

When are you going to build it? Summer is coming...

Speed boards have always been pretty wild looking almost like just tacking a ski onto the healside rail

I use to put a step in my toeside tail for my surfboards kinda like half square half batwing looking things cause i i hated leaning forward so much

hahaha... yeah its a long journey. I've had other projects on the go and needed to collect all the data first before I hit go for insurance claim.

Plus I've gone all high tech with full 3d cad model, laser cut template, Cnc routed press ribs, Titanium inserts. I wanted carbon spread tow which is damn hard to find in nz.

Previously I hand cut and drew everything. That's ok for a home build, but **** isn't perfect, This time I want accuracy.

Why go to those lengths?

Because I can.
