This Alaia board thing is very appealing. I have already rearranged my building plans for this winter
Alaia will come in first
However, I intend to do it as a composite board (2,5 mm Paulownia or Okoume ply-sheets, fiberglass, epoxy,...).
So basically I will have to start with a new rocker table with implemented concave, angled rails and other shape features.
I wanted to ask you all, what kind of tail shape would you chose?
1. straight tail with no transition to the straight rail (90 angle) -like Naish seems to have
2. rounded transition between tail and rail, with some cut-outs on the tail- like in waterlust page
3. no transition, with some tail cut-outs
4. any other combinations
How do these shapes influence the ride characteristics?
