to piggyback off this question - what's up with these and why so cheap?
Info says flat bottom. Do the Surftech Barks have a hull bottom?

The quality is probably ok but I wouldnt support anyone who blatantly scans and copies someone elses board and sells it on their own. There was a huge drama where jack bark showed the commander file over layed onto this and they were exactly the same.

As to the ghost carbon any surftech dealer or paddle shop can get them. Many of the guys I paddle with bought used ones but they took 1-2 months to find them.

It's probably cheap because the design is slow and the materials suck. I know a few shapers that experiment with a little bit of concave on their hulls but not full flat bottoms like this. I cant imagine those cut through water like a good paddleboard should.

Concave is great on paddleboards. It really really helps with stability. Most Molokai boards actually have a rounded hull into a double concave

Yeah, the concaves I see from some of those shapers look really good and i imagine allows you to go narrower with more stability.
Didnt know about the double concaves, though. very interesting.

As for the ghost carbon construction, if you are lucky enough to find a used one, GET IT. It's way lighter than the normal ST construction and the board is perfect.

And Zander... do I know you? You're not Jebidiah with a Z, are you? Have you done any northern hemisphere races?

So where can I go buy one of these things? Craigslist doesnt have shit....

The Bark Commanders are great stock boards. I have one at home that I paddle and even though people always say I should be on a 14' board (I'm kinda big), I like the nimbleness of a stock board and I'm not racing, just trying to have fun and stay in shape.

If you ever get a new board either get the new commander WT or go custom. In Australia people of all weights paddle 106, 120, or 180. The volume is dependent on the paddler size. For example DEEP ocean boards makes for paddlers that go up in 5kg increments ie: 55kg 60kg etc all the way up to 90kg. And 106 clubby boards are designed for some people that are 100+ kgs

The first stock bark I had was horrible to knee paddle and not stable at all. I didnt know there was different volumes and whatnot as their are no dims on the boards. I then custom ordered a JM built for my weight the thing was super easy to knee paddle. Now Im on the wide tail commander bark and weigh in the 180s and no worries for me on a stock board
