I was under the impression the extra kick on the nose would be for exactly those times you do crash into the wave.tomtom wrote: ↑Mon Oct 07, 2019 7:13 pmextra kick on nose is super extra resistance. Even if this look contra intuitive - nose scoop have HUGE influence on board resistance. Kick on nose mean every time you crash into wave board start pushing water. And every turn you dig whole length board in water you push water.

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.
