I've been reading this thread and really enjoying it. B Snyder I like your designs they are very cool. The concept about biometrics and the shape of the board is very unique. Your air brush Einstein is also very clean and looks awesome.
Since some of you guys got onto finless talk. I'm keen to hear more as I've always admired Derek Hynd and his performance with the finless stuff. I think he's blended finless with asymmetric design. http://youtu.be/7C6TxR3aUKc
I too respect Derek. I've met him. Super cool guy.
Fin-less is OK to me. To each his own.
To me, fin-less is more squatting & sliding than surfing.
Watch someone surf one of those old Hot-curl boards from the 30's & 40's.
Much of the same style.
They called it "sliding ass" back then.
Nothing feels better than taking all that speed and just laying it on rail.
