    Here are a few dim pics from the Rich Price. Man that thing had more rocker that I thought. Rocker pics are 12' from tail and nose. The small concave is the nose, the large cocave is before the channels start. Sorry forgot to put a tape on those

    Also check out how much foam there is forward both in thickness and width. My last step up was so thin in these areas, I always thought it would snap off. Should be an interesting ride.

    thanks for that, stuck! do you know if rich price learned how to do channel bottoms from someone else or if this is his own take on the concept? i ask b/c i didn't think concaves were used on channel bottoms like that. i was always under the impression that those boards were flat other than the channels.

    edit: it definitely is fuller forward than most hpsb/step up designs. looks similar to my 6'4" campbell bros.what are the full dims on that (length, nose width, wide point, tail width, thickness)?

    It looks sic. My friend, who is old but in good shape ( he is PBC lifeguard ) just got one similar and took it down to Soupbowls in Barbados and loved it. Is the widepoint front of center?

    Yes... and they work good, IMO, but you gotta stick to the smaller fins/more rocker concept. I shaped one as a stock board for Greenlight... model is the Havoc... that was designed as a quad. Sold last year. Maybe if that guy posts here he could put up a review.
