Do your channels run parallel to the stringer?Made this 6 channel with its custom sized fins for Royce 12 years ago.
I got a call from the beach just before his first go out , Royce was concerned about it being windy - I laughed
He learned something new

How many not "Quite right " Thrusters have you had since 1981 ?
Tail has 3 layers with the tail patch + fin boxes or Glassed on finsI asked you a question earlier about channels regarding flex and surface area.
Care to discuss?
Glassers and Sanders hate 'em.
Most shapers love how they look, but I doubt they get paid enough when they shape them,
so they usually cringe inside when someone orders them.
Most surfers love how they look, but have no idea how or what type of board their use is for,
what kind of surf they work best in, conditions, etc.
So, What type of channels are best for what types of boards and what types of conditions?
Shallow-4 under both feet? Deep 6 out the back? Placement around fins? or thru fins?
Better combo with concaves or vee? More rocker or less?
GG makes some nice looking ones, deep 6 out the back, 2 up front on logs.
Byning Spears/Hamish too, along with other skilled craftman.
IMO, the deep 6 can be tracky, and would work better on a fast lined up type wave,(just looking at it speaks speed).
While the shallow type under feet are more of an all around/ gimmicky/ don't do much of anything
type of shape that just looks cool with no real inherent use.
