hello, you can add a curved piece to the nose like the old f-one "Style" twintips ,make it as curved as you like to prevent getting caught in waves.
it can be bolted down with the fin screws

Cool looking board. The uni in the Z pattern is a nice touch. What weight of cloth did you use? Final weight?

200grm spread town and unit. Havent go a final weight yet. Need to find some scales.

Your logic makes sense Peter as far as wave arc angle is concerned. My thought process is that i care less if i bury the nose in smaller stuff. So I can give away some wave performance for better upwinding and boosting performance. But on big waves i do not want to bury the nose in any circumstance. So i would prefer more nose rocker to ensure that doesn't happen.

But i've only had one 40 min session in pitchy shitty shore break. Now i need to get out there for some real testing.

It does, but it is experience in waves that has lead to these choices, not the logic as such.

Should emphasize that when I say rocker I dont mean nose-rocker, or scoop as it is called.
How much lift in the nose is mostly a personal thing.

It is the main rockerline, and the tail or tailkick that is most important to select for the waves (combined with width and V or not of course).

So using a flatter line/tailkick for bigger waves, to get more speed so able to surf in control on big monsters, and also able to carve around closing sections to get to the clean lip.

And in medium but steeper waves, more rocker or tailkick works fine for hooking into the waveface, and you dont need the same board speed.

For small waves or low wind it is personal as said, a wider tail of course, but whether a more flat rockerline so you can glide a lot easier but need to control your cutback, or you prefer more rocker so you need more power but a he.. of a lot better and smoother cutback, is just a choice.

I assume these characteristics for waveboards should fit the very same on a wave mutant board :thumb:

Well I have less rocker in the tail, but more width and less tail V. So lets see what happens when I hit bigger waves.
