Guess you're right. I keep looking at it and trying to figure out where the magic comes from, it doesn't seem that unusual a design, though the VQC isn't that obvious unless you look at it right or run your hand along the length of the bottom spine.I firmly believe its the Vee. The flex is great too and I think that helps keep speed through turns, but the sharp directional change is definitely the VQC. Its such a sick board.
I intentionally sized it a few liters more than usual for a SB (I have a 5'6 cymatic that feels right, for instance), figuring that it might give it a slightly better range, from groveling to larger waves. It's so lively and easy to surf that I doubt the extra makes much of a difference at all in performance. Also, the bump in volume, low rocker, and maybe the parallel outline, make it an unusually strong paddler/wave catcher for a 5'8 (33L). I'm 5'11 and 160 lbs.How'd you guys size your Revos? Looks like a fun shape, but being a snub nosed Tomo makes me hesitant to use usual length/volume benchmarks.
