    That's not the case,although it has to be pointed out that lower speeds ( which one sees on flatter sections) always move the stagnation line back behind the leading edge of the wetted surface area more than at higher speeds. This is true of all surfboards.

    The longer designs have superb gliding ability and frequently I can ride unbroken swells when the Malibu and SUp crew cannot. Once in steeper sections the boards do very well also.

    I have many different longboard designs so it would help if you referred to the specific board rather than 'the board'


    Please provide more factual, design based input on why and/or how you can claim that your "postmodern" surfboards are better than other surfboards that are being produced today.
    I'm happy to get into the specific design features of my boards and what they do but have to point out that I have never said that that my boards are "better than other surfboards that are being produced today"

    So you'll have to re frame your question.

    .

    When you make broad statements that say your creations are better than anything out there I ask you to prove it.
    The problem there is that I have never said that.

    It's a 'straw man' argument.

    Sweet... Please post some more pathetic surfing as soon as you have video evidence... The only thing I find more annoying than watching the helmet guy surf with zero style is your ridiculously obnoxious responses.

    The Makaha is 12'9" by 27" ( I've been making boards that wide for many years before the SUP revival) by only 2 inches thick... she's a flexible blade, weight 24 pounds ( from memory).

    Quite so, and remember the old adage "no pain no gain".

    Thank you for the 'zero style' observation... style is a handicap which I have striven to eliminate.

    Regarding 'obnoxious' responses: I have been subject to abuse on this thread but have responded politely and calmly... any perceived obnoxious behaviour is simply due to the pain of receiving ideas which your mindset tries to reject rather than due to the content itself... in other words look to yourself.
