that looks awesome greg.

So with your fin placements, you could do a thruster/twin/twinzer combo on something like this?

I have a Raynor Nugget. I prefer its overall balanced outline. It works well in mush and the round tail gives it a lot of planing area in a small package. Mine is 5'10" x 21 x 2 5/8 and 37L. I'm 6'2" and 215 lbs. Board works in everything from waist high up. Biggest I've surfed it is 8-9 foot faces. Board is good in all conditions and feels controlled. I love the board. Some of the other small wave boards I've had tended to get a bit uncontrollable in bigger surf. The nugget doesn't. If the surf is super small then I prefer a bit more volume and length. It's a small wave shape but not an ultra groveler (If that makes sense).

I like a straighter rail line, plan-shape wise, for North Florida "small", because everyone who knows more about design than I do says it aids drive/speed which is the quest for me in our typically soft, flat-faced surf. Lower rocker is what I tend to obsess over, and the rare times it's felt sticky/tracky, it's because I didn't have my back foot nice and far back, or head/shoulders weren't opened down the line ahead of waist/legs at lip address.

Can/do you do the hoover craft as a twinzer?

I like normal wide point placement - a little aft of centre. Normal tail width. Shorter than my go to HPSB and a tad wider. That's all. Shorter and wider helps execute that ugly, but effective small wave tactic the fish killer aka Huntington Hop.

Those personal preferences still leaves room for a lot of variation - my two favourite small wave boards are the CI New Flyer and the Chilli Mini Bird (small version of the Rare Bird). Their outlines look very different - NF narrow hose and squash tail. Mini Bird widish nose and rounded pin.

For small waves there will be more than plan shape involved. Definitely no panel V or roll/rounded V - they are lift killers. Double concave in V is different. The important thing is that all those things need to be put together in a complementary design.
