first board is almost exactly a copy of the roberts white diamond shape.
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.
