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!
