I've had a few good flyers. They all went on rail just fine.

Gregs latest crusade has inspired me to order a bump tail for my quiver.

I asked Todd to discuss the dynamics of the template .

So lets do that instead of secret sauce type conversations . smile2

"everyone has one in their line up "

Almost everyone gives out crappy fins with the boards too - for a Very long time .

This does not make those fins good .

Talk specifics in what this template does .

And here we go again .

Personal attacks to avoid actual design discussion .

Talk about the design .

I've always liked the looks of round and swallow tails much better and it would be hard for me to order a bump squash because of aesthetics.

However, I got this thing used and it is the ticket for the waves around here. The outline and low rocker make it work in super small waves all the way up to nearly OH.



My entire existence is a failed gotcha

Well Geerg , you know it was an example of "everyone has them" not necessarily being good .

You still have not educated anything on the dynamics of the High wing design .

To correct things that have been spun , I am saying this design rides flatter than no wing designs , not flat .

In around 2006 many shapers learned this when the Thumb tail design emerged from Oz .

It was the Merrick High wing board with the wing removed .

Made by Jason and Darren .

My bump squash morphed into one without one as the boards progressed. Not really so much out of feedback, but the particular board ended being preferred in the upper end of the wave range since I have true grovelers. The original bump squash did better on the lower end than the newer ones but they suffered a bit on the upper range.

As far as turning flat, I don't think so but I really don't know. I haven't had two identical boards, one with, one without, to compare.

Is riding flatter necessarily a bad thing when combined with other design elements?

Greg, I dont have the knowledge to add but would enjoy learning and hearing about the topic.

Look forward to hearing more about "Wings/Bumps"

Flatter is either a verb or a noun. It is not an adverb.


Grammar police OUT!


I’m just here to drink some beer and ride high volume boards.

Waiting for some "bump squash education "

Andy Irons is one pro that learned the difference as well as his shapers .

It appears Kelly and JJF have too .

The man who brought you the High Wing Thruster design :


http://simonandersonsurfboards.com/au/surfboards/

Using curve instead of wings on most models .


http://simonandersonsurfboards.com/au/three-peat/





"Blended with 80′s and 90′s style rails, flatter deck and original Thruster plan-shape featuring a single flyer moved back to 8″ up from the tail."
