" with a revolutionary rail to rocker to bottom contour combination" - Must be a Flat bottom with Foiled Tucked edge nose to tail ;-)

Actually the "NEW - LATEST " rearset fin placements are whats really making the difference ;-)

There's definitely concave to double to vee going on. But flat through the whole entry until under the front foot. Tucked edge nose to tail.
The fins placements are definitely rearward. Makes for a very positive feeling twin.

Damn, he makes those tiny twins look like he's skating a park. So tempting. I wonder if they have worked as well for any mere mortal surfers. Did you ever surf yours or end up getting a refund/re-make?

Are you talking specifically about the plasmic? Im curious as well.
I'm gonna start annoying people repeating this but my Lightbender is absolute magic. Never had a board as balanced.

The board was returned to the glasser and things were promptly made right.

Surfed mine in dumpy waist/chest beachbreak. Board was very zippy and loose. Could be surfed frontside and backside no problem. First wave I spun a reverse in the whitewater and I really didn't expect the board to allow for it so naturally. The board gave me a feeling of a considerable amount of freedom that it would allow for some very creative surfing if someone wanted to get it dialed in.

At the same time though (and this feels weird to say) it felt very bland and I didn't connect at all emotionally with it. My curiosity was satisfied and I sold it the next day.
