And just a suggestion Emass regarding more entry rocker? You don't need it. If your name was SouthPacific Spicoli? Sure. But, not for around here where we live. I'm not sure what type of boards you ride but I'm guessing primarily shortboards? Look for or ask for something that has a rolled entry in the bottom contour through the nose, like on a Hull. It will speed water down and away Very quickly and smoothly and won't interrupt your rail line like More rocker would.
Oh, and angle your take offs. 90% of the waves we surf here not only allow it, they demand it. Good luck man.

What I'm finding in my own riding is that I need entry rocker even for thicker and smaller boards. You guys here on this thread are a big help in learning more.[/QUOTE]
why "need", emass? i mean, every board in existence has some amount of entry rocker, but one w/ lower rocker generally will plane better & get into waves earlier than one w/ higher.

Here's my Campbell Bros board. 6-1 x 19 x 2.5 with foiled rails; its my winter good wave board but will work in waist high stuff as long as its a good shape
Here's one by Danny Martinez in San Diego. 3 fin bonzer setup, 5-10 x 20
Barry Snyder is currently designing me something that is going to be a 5 fin bonzer and the sickness
