BUT, I am nobody. Certainly Roberts knows what he's doing... I'd love to pick his brain about fin placement.
Sweet looking board either way


I had similar thoughts re the fin placement, however, the feedback from team riders on this particular placement has so far been overwhelmingly positive. I thought the rear fins were too far back, but apparently I was wrong.

Yeah, but that guy would probably look better riding a thruster poke


I'm completely joking. That guy is tearing the snot out of those sub-par conditions. jam_on

Looks fun. Are the larger fins not parallel with the outer channels? Esplain? I'm just learning this stuff.

too much static here...wtf are you doing to us GWS?

Has GG finally sunk in to you all?...designing a board with a complementary fin theory.

Going the Switzerland route not ruffle too many feathers...FCS and Futures..

Plus a nod to the Campbells with the use of the Bonzer fin.

Another nod to Jobsons Twinzer... Fish Tails...Bat Tails...skulls.

Channels..!!!!!!!!! please someone make the Hitler bunker meme parody with this board.

We have just crossed over into...The Twonzer Zone.

I Love it.....

And my claim to Twonzer Fame...I used to surf with Sean when we were maybe 13 yrs old or so in Carlsbad...at Surf Camp...:) He was better than us, he was the best at the camp, but we all used to charge for being that young and pushed each other. I still remember his William Dennis board. I was a better skater though smile fun memories and good years for waves.

That thing looks really good. What's the word on backside?
Is anyone using that rear fin option?

Ok, presently I'm past talking design specifics on the "Design Forum." It always gets ugly. I just don't have the patience for it anymore. I've got enough drama in my personal life, I don't need to create more over surfboards of all things.

The charge for the channels was reasonable IMHO. We will see if that holds. If tons of these things were ordered, I could see the glasser reassessing their rates. Robert has actually worked out a fairly easy way of shaping them in. And no, I'm not going to tell you all how.

Looks like an up dated Zinger, a board that was designed by Ace in San Diego when he was working for Mike Eaton. Ace builds some interesting boards.

But all the ones I've seen have been funboards.

I would like to give it a try. Seems like with boxes in all positions you could sub in either of the Bonzer 5 fins. Which would you leave you screwed if you felt like you needed that Bonzer3 size lead fins, but like I said, that seems like a lot of fin.

shrug


stoked to see Roberts messing around w/ this and his team riders diggin them

and thanks for sharing GWS jam_on
