GDaddy. A small keel is a good idea. I was also thinking of a keel with a cutaway base. Maybe a little more cut then Normal.

ACE was recommending low aspect fins for their bonzer and Zinger designs on those midlengths. I think in part because of the prevailing conditions at Sunset Cliffs where they were centered. He has previously commented about thinking that there's considerable overlay between channels and fins, enough so that he favored his 6-shooter (quad + canards) on flat bottoms over doing channels.

So now we've been seeing the NPjr twin single, and we know that the use of channels allows for the use of smaller fins and that channels add hold as well as adding drive, so this design has taken that track further by skipping altogether the twin single + channels combo that would have been an intermediary step between the two. The other thing is that Roberts has the main fins way further back when compared to the NPjr design, which engages them even more.

Definitely interesting. I wasn't too keen on how they looked at first but they've grown on me. My buddy just got a WD3 twonzer.

Very interesting you brought this up and youre spot on.

I was recently talking to GG about an 8 channel quad speed egg he made me, which is insane, and I mentioned how it absolutly flys, loves the pocket, but its very different when going hard on the rail for a roundhouse. It projects differently on rail with fast speed but wants to flatten a tad. Sorta like a fish squirting through the hands. I just throw more weight into it, but GG immediately said the trailers should be reduced to correct it. Lightbulb finally went off in my head...of course...the channels are creating a bigger fin .

BTW...who ever said channels dont work in chop... hah good job at keeping a speedy production line all these years.

Although that fin placement looks so odd, the boards (and concept) look
fun and I'd love to feel what they provide. Would be really cool to see video
footage of those rippers on that fin setup/board.
Thanks for sharing something interesting, GWS.
