    First, not New. I'd hate for you to be disappointed and have to pay for freight back. plus no refunds.

    I wouldn't say a Roy board is a Tom Blake at all. Roy's olo trumps Blake's olo easily. Even Blake would admit that. Just look at brad Tucker's footage of the Blake olo replica and compare to Roy's olo. Hmmmmmmmm

    Does the gnome, aka dad-da, pay you to post this drivel, chucka boo boo?

    Seriously, wtf do you know about Blake's boards? You're up there in your Maine woodshop, beating on latex dummies, while your dog rips the ass out of same. Then you post that idiocy in the Internet.

    The only thing you know about is where to get cheap latex sex dolls to replenish your barn supply.

    Well spotted she has a single nose to tail concave, approximately 9mm deep at the rocker apex.

    Most wooden boards have profile taper or 'foil' similar to what foam boards have. mine differ in that they have a parallel profile i.e. no profile taper.

    The tunnel fin provides a huge increase in drive, and more planing area in the tail without having to widen the tail, it does this with completely neutral handling, so the single fin feel is maintained.

    Not difficult to claim a "...huge increase in drive" when there is almost none to begin with.

    Come on yank...from Roy's perspective he's not riding the board in the sweet spot...addressed before in this thread...talk about beating a dead horse.

    The better question would be about the angle of the attack of the bottom (?) of the fin (bottom curve of the tunnel fin...wondering if it would create unnecessary drag...why not just create a square tunnel fin...what's the word Roy?...and why the addition of the center fin...more drag..maybe some overkill? Just wondering not trolling ya...
