The New 7'8 Wide Ripper

I've been playing with new ideas on how to improve my original 7'8 (Dumpster Diver inspired) shape from 2 years ago. 

 

This new 7'8 wide ripper, follows the trend toward thinner overall shapes with more width replacing the lost volume.  

 

The result, was quite a surprise. It's actually faster! Who would have thought wider is faster. Well maybe I should have. After all, windsurfers have all gone wider in recent years, and they got faster! 

 

 

Here is Surf Machine (Brian) with the new shape. 

It takes serious SPEED to do this on tiny waves!

Pump that sucker

Ready set........

Go!
