Ode to Shaper Steven Beattie
Thought I would keep you up to date with board #2.
The first board was really good in down the line fast waves but was a bit difficult on my backhand and when the waves got a bit of a pocket on them.
The aim was to shape a board that still had the glide of the original but could turn in the pocket a little better. Increased the rocker just a little and moved the concave towards the nose so I could get some vee out the tail, narrowed it a little and replaced the keel with close clustered split keel.
The result is a lot more squirt and control through turns, still really good glide and hold.
