    A few small wave boards

    Summer is coming and you need a small wave board.

    The "Standard Deviation" - small wave shreader



    This one is 5'7" x 19 3/4" x 2 3/8"

    Here is Billy Papenberg surfing his in Puerto Rico this winter:

    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.

    The first person who says they have shaped a board that is "super fun in knee high onshore slop" gets a virus straight to the hard drive.

    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.
