i've received a number of tickets in the mail from the surfboard-length police but i just ignore 'em and have fun riding the board.

ya, the board is pretty slick. I was pretty surprised at how deep the single concave is when I first looked at it. Board is only going to come out of the racks when the winter surf is good.

I just don't like thick boards or short boards wider than 20". I've ridden and owned plenty at this point in my life shrug

Shouldn't surfers ride what they feel works best for them?

Design 101

Notice how those Yuge boards templates reduce area from the wide point vs the narrow board keeping width till the "Hip"

This rate of narrowing from wide point makes them ride shorter and quicker at that width , while keeping width makes a narrower board ride longer and resist going into the turn " on rail"

Wade is enjoying this on his wider Lemonade design .
