A few months ago we made a new experimental board model, that drew influences from a board we had built for our friend Rich several years ago (now in the hands of Alex Swanson). That one was 7'0 with a subtle S-deck, and a wide stumpy tail. After trying it out in several conditions, we became increasingly curious about making a smaller one, with even more foam in the middle, and a more defined S-Deck.
After seeing this 6'4 take shape, it's starting to resemble a board that would be the offspring of the Kookumber and the Pleasant Pheasant.
Thankful we have some waves this week, to get this thing in the water! We will keep you posted with feedback.
