I have never in my life heard of any surfboard company use “sink the rail” as a marketing term.

No, Greg. You don’t get it and it and it doesn’t matter what words I use. You won’t get it.

IMO there isn’t enough appreciation for dialing in rail shape and volume.

I liked what Jordy said in SITD about how the DHD rode vs what he wanted to feel during a cutback.

Jordy rode too small boards for too long. Same reasons many others do. He resisted being dialed. He wrote off the benefits for familiarity.

How about "engaging" the rail instead then?

Everyone here knows exactly the feeling sd_101 was describing.

For too long bogging has been equated as burying by the rank and file riding hpsbs. But hey they threw lots of spray on that hack, just before all their speed was gone and they flailed and fell off. Ripping.

"Sinking" the rail has been a concept since the early 80's

A well designed rail sets automatically during almost any manuever

Many popular boards today have really bad rail design - ones that resist naturally setting in .

sd_101 is your guy , he used this term sink the rail .

Learn from him .

I bought a used Gary Mcneill CV2 7'2" made for an old longboarder that was shipped to me from interstate. When it arrived I was shocked about how much foam was in the rails of the board. Normally Gary foils them pretty thin. Needn't have been concerned...as Greg said the rails were well designed and the board turned beautifully. My mates were always joking about how it had SUP rails.
