Hello first i realy want to thanks both you for great influence to my own boards - and also for real inovative aproach to board design. Especialy by Hein. But i really apreciate Dereck "arty and feel" aproach too.
i make boards just for myself for fun and also because they are imo better than production ones - if anything i like them more
Here is my problem - recently i have big problem with my right knee /artro surgery
So i need board which is very light to back leg - idealy 50/50 - back/front
While this isnt big problem with small area medium rocker high wind board - for me it is real challenge as efficient flat rocker light wind board. /something like hein flywood - ss glide or spleene session/
Just for clarification chop bumping isnt problem - but constant loading back foot by edging upwind is.
So in your opinion it is some way to make something like:
ultralight wind machine
not heavy on back foot?
Some my ideas
IMO key is move board centre of efford /where most water is pushed/- more forward - i mean changing pressure condition under board.
Maybe by changing place where water will be relased - by rail shape or bottom shape.
I even thinking about all good swallow tail.
More flex on tail is just cheating - there must be some fundamental solution which will be work on rigid platform too.
But it is out of my league - This is why i asking you.
Only production board which ride like this is Ocean rodeo mako - but it is definitely not light wind board. And also other than this feature i dindt like it
I also think that every body will like this feature on every twintip - not just sickknees
Thank you very much and sorry for my bad english
i make my board for riding - not for jumping - so drive in jibes, speed and acceleration are my goals
Thanks one more time
