There is a post about this in the Design Forum. It's surf related so it also belongs in here
Maybe I should add some politics to make an official thread worthy of the main ERBB forum?
I do not support Californias Internet Tax, There it's officially worthy of this and the Design forum.
Boberto, it is a semi full nose. If I posted this side by side with my SB1 you could probably notice the slight difference.
The next board up in my quiver with a fuller nose and more on the fishy side of the shortboard/fish hybrids they offer would be the Blowfish.
That has a slightly fuller nose than the Disco but much more full nose than their Standard shorboard like the SB1.
The fullness is not only in the width of the nose but in the thickness, so it has deceiving paddle power. I like a thicker deck up front on the board so I have paddle power combined with performance in the tail like a standard shortboard.
The Disco provides the volume in the nose, aka me saying full nose, is provided both via the width/thickness combination.
Igotyourshere took it for a ride or two and he's pushing 215lbs as well.
The nose on a 5'10 absolutely has to be full for us weight challenged surfers to be able to catch waist to chest high mushburgers like we were riding.
It's not a full nose on the fish side, but more in the shortboard side. The thing is a beach break barrel riding machine with the paddle of a fat boy board
