    It was influenced by the WD. Just about every shaper now has a model influenced by that board.


    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.
    Funny, you didn't mention all those specs on here....I was clearly referring to the shape of the board, not the other variables which are to difficult to determine from simply looking at a picture. There are variations on every board out there, not every one is exactly identical unless it is machined and even then there can be subtle variations in the boards. All I was saying was your outline, while slightly wider (it looks like) from the white diamond looks similar. That being said they work great in small surf from what I hear.

    Gotcha. When you say "copy", it implies that all the aspects of design are the same. I don't want to give the impression that I am in the business of copying another shapers work. We all steal ideas, concepts and influence from each other and that's accepted within the industry, but completely ripping off a design someone else spent time and money developing is not.

    Thanks for the compliments. Sorry if my reply sounded a bit harsh, but I really wanted to prevent the idea of me copying a design from spreading.

    Gallery,
    Were you at the first AB3 east a few years ago? I think I met you there, or at least saw your boards.

    Yeah that was probably me. I help organize the AB3. Jon and I are hoping to hold another one in the fall.
