"The Huch" - Designed with Chris Huch as more high performance version of the Standard Deviation

Shredding some smaller waves
New prototype in development: The Function
My interpretation of the writings on design by Dan (Tomo) Thomson such as drag reduction, lift, and hydrofoil.

I'm surprised you can tell that the foil ,bottom contours, fin placement, rocker and rail shape are the same all from just a picture of the outline. Especially since my outline is different than his in the front 1/3 of the board.
It was influenced by the WD. Just about every shaper now has a model influenced by that board with some minor "deviations" to tweak the design to their own liking. The name of the board is a play on that fact.
My outline, bottom, and rocker are different, however I did steal the way he shapes his diamond tail and the way he transitions his rail in the nose.
