    If by 'displacement hull' you are referring to the usual type incorrectly referred to as such, I have to disagree. The difference in the ride between the two types is vast.

    Not to go off topic about a million different ways I'd rather spend 500 000 dollars, but one could buy nearly every model m series bmw (8 in total) for the price of one of these boards.

    How much you think it will end up weighing? What is it at now?

    The well heeled surfer not faint of wallet could have all of the above.

    The finished weight is usually about the same as the board is at this stage of shaping, which is 23 pounds.

    whoops- meant tom. I live vicariously on through that blog. I can't wait to get my hands on a custom campbell bros. I bought a used 3 fin bonzer bottom step up (for me) off craigslist in Baltimore for 165 and its almost mint besides some yellowing. I would pay $500k for a Malcom's boards for SURE>

    Duncan Campbell rode our 13 footer at Haleiwa, said he was stoked. Malcolm sent me a picture of a pre bonzer fin setup which they'd come up with, it is very interesting but he asked me not to publicise it.

    Tom and I have quite bit in common regarding rails and fins, but of course he is into noseriders so the result is quite different. He said that my boards were the inspiration for him to start making wooden boards.

    No doubt you'd adjust and enjoy it.
