Twin Arc Tail Quad Part xxxx

Ive been working on this board for a couple of months now and Im finally getting to where I really want it!!

5'10 x 19 x 2 3/8
4.5oz bottom / 4.5oz + 1/4 patch top
Channel bottom Quad.

Lots of influence from my original HP fish, Mitten's kiteboard and Tomo's Tail designs.

I used this board for the sacred craft show last weekend and I finally convinced myself to take her out. Padded and waxed up, first sesh would be at local spot. shoulder high + with the funky section just where the creek has been flowing.

I had to shake off the foam and sanding dust on the first 2 waves, As soon as my feet started putting some grooves. It started to feel at home.

As I moved to the inside and started picking off the swing wides I was damn stoked! The added tail rocker + experimental fin placements just loosened up the board perfectly without sacrificing drive and trim.

Gonna try different fins tomorrow. The plastic fins starts to wash out a bit.

Stoked!
