    would it work better than what? looks like a round tail weirdo ripper or #4 to me...nothing really bizarre or different going on there. people have been putting wings on round tails since the 1970's.

    Yeah well compared to the normal weirdo it just looks a little funky between the fish and the rounded i was wonderin which would work better in smaller surf

    i actually think this would help extend the design's range in bigger surf, not smaller. the weirdo has a lot more rocker, both nose & tail, than you'd think...i think it's more of a medium-good wave board than a small-medium wave board.

    also, it's not a "fish" tail, it's a swallow tail. like the bird. all fish have swallow tails, but not all boards w/ swallow tails are fish.
