The rocker is definitely what makes this thing magic.

Not the best pic, but you get the idea.



Sorta reminds me of a Cooperfish Comet....but different.

I had a 7'11 and i'm short and light - it wasn't a cheater five board for me. The nose is really thinned out. Definitely glides and trims from the middle, but liked to be turned off the tail. Excellent board.

glad yall are having fun smile
I just posted a little sizing breakdown on my website about how i generally think about v.bowls and the change in the design as it scales up or down - the shape is really sensitive to dimensional changes since the widepoint, thickest point, and apex of the rocker are lined up in conjunction with eachother. what that tends to do is as you move one of your dimensions (say you want it thicker but not wider), it affects the curve of the belly and dome of the deck (thicker will create a heavier dome and bottom roll, making the board quicker on rail, but will be harder to sink or bury, and also more sensitive the farther you move your feet off the stringer). so basically I scale the width and thickness up and down together with the length and tend not to deviate too far from the baseline numbers.. so generally when someone is asking me what size they should get, im most interested in the ride they want, and how they see themselves riding the board.
