    By "tapered profile" do you mean nose-to-tail "foil" or "thickness flow?" I don't know if I'd call that an industry myth. I've played with foil and changing foil does change performance characteristics. So I'd argue that the foils you see on boards today, made with foam and fiberglass, serve a purpose. Again... it's what you're after. Some surfboards DO need a certain type of foil in order to perform in a certain way, just like your boards need a certain profile to perform a certain way.

    I listen to the guys that ride finless boards very closely when they talk about rails.

    I've been using the profile since '94 and have had countless industry types and their clones telling me that it can't be done, shouldn't be done etc, it still goes on.

    In short they claim that a tapered profile is vital for the best performance for any surfboard type... laughable I know but that's what they actually think.

    Thanks man, I'm really happy with this one, the concave, weight, and shape came out just right.

    "I need some bog shoes for wade fishing in the marsh and this looks like it would work great. Plus, "Hot Karl" is an apt name seeing as how they will be covered with mud and smelly detritus after a good day of fishing"

    Lol anyway she's a great design, I built and rode one in the year 2000 ( built at a remote beach where we were freedom camping) and it was epic... this one has been tweaked slightly.
