“The double diamond is a small wave board with range that paddles well, drives over the dead sections, and can also fit into the pocket.
It’s slightly curved planshape and diamond tail negates that overly stiff feel that wide straight swallow tails can get. These lines allow the board to be pumped for speed and snapped hard in the pocket. The 5 fin configuration extends on it’s versatility.
The double concave in the tail adds the bite that is needed to give grip when the waves get a little bigger.”
This model is the shortest and fullest of the four small wave boards that have been based on the high performance shortboard. It’s stumpy planshape is combined with rails, deck shape and concave as you’d find on any current shortboard, so that it still feels alive and responsive. The tail area is wide enough to not only give great small wave planing ability, but also to give the freedom to break the fins out in top turns.
This small wave pocket rocket is a total rip off of Matt Bilos’s Rocket fish thing, which I really like. No actually I designed it well before I even saw that model of his, but no wonder I like his design because it has a deckline like the sonic. This board has a bit more concave than usual at 3/8″ of depth and has a slightly flatter deck. As a result you get chunks of lift and speed from the deep concave but forgiveness from the stability that comes from the flatter deck. This model sits in between the CD and the Mini CD in terms of function. ie looser than the CD but more controllable and all-rounder-ish than the Mini CD.
