After reading the OP, I cried a little.

OP: For a gnome apologist, as you are, just buy your one-way air to gnome farm NZ & stop with the goofy posts.

I'm one of the few on this site that actually spoke to the gnome's design flaws and could point out why they were unappealing to me and my style of surfing (I won't say they were bad or performed worse.... He made a board that floats and performs how he wants it to on his wave. I disagree with him when he says they're better than modern shapes.) I really don't see where you can call me a RS apologist though. I've stuck up for other nonstandard shapers on the forum but I've never defended the gnome, he always beats me to it.
I would really love to go to nz but I think I'm ingrained too much in this America thing to jump ship yet. Plus I heard that at this point in my life they wouldn't take me if I immigrated there.
Hey could someone explain the "Francine," thing. I'm lost on that. Why youse guys keep calling people, "Francine?"
Yankee and Clemson don't get along? Wow. You guys should dig each other because you guys are top-notch swellinfo-ites. Semi-hippies, like John Lennon, used to call for peace, but even surf predictin' sites are such hostile environments. There's no hope. No hope.......

I don't claim to understand it but it hasn't been trademarked yet so I'll keep playing.
Back to the main question. I'm planning on riding the board with minimal sanding/finishing. I don't forsee any major problems other than cosmetic stuff. Someone tell me if I'm wrong.

I like the shape. I dont think its weird at all. Did you make the fins? They seem like they are pretty big.
By the way, thank you for saying this:

Thanks! I made everything on it. I was gonna put a quad on but I didn't like the look of it so I did this instead. The idea for the fins was based on this guy.IMG_4092.jpg
Kind of a "match the hatch" type thing. The board is short and wide so I tried to mimic fish that are short and wide.
