    To me thats a good level of thinking. Its only one design aspect (and might even be a desirable design aspect depending on how you want the board to perform) but at least its criticism that's based on some functional characteristic of the board. I'm no expert on rails...is that a bad assessment? I've thought it made some sense...round rails drawing water up instead of releasing it might slow a board down and affect turns.

    To me it's better level of thinking than worrying about wetsuit color, cost, lack of sales, broken boards, etc.

    By the way, and I think i said it before, fantastic job on the board. I really hope you find some good waves for it.
