Wat?

BTW, I once broke the nose off of a board (Channel Islands boards had a habit of that) and just kept surfing it. There were no down sides to it and the up side was more snappy turns due to less swing weight. Thats when I realized that, in some cases much of the nose volume is superfluous in regards to paddling and catching waves.

Thats when I bought a Pod and since then have ridden pointy nosed boards only in large to very large surf.
