I came from Original Alien Air, I ride a Nobile Zen Splitboard foil when travelling , have ridden the two Crazy Fly pocket boards but have been riding a Groove Skate for a couple of months. I'm a big guy, 225lbs, riding strapless on a Moses 590/330 101cm. Board is awesome, freakishly light, the scoop helps you on marginal wind starts or if you touch down. I didn't really care for the CF's they have no displacement. The new small Dwarfcraft will certainly be cheaper and easier to get, and the F-One small board looks nice if you have a local dealer.
this rockerline is unmatched by any other pocket board currently available
I dont understand what you mean?
The Groove Skate 120 cm I assume.
Any shaper will postulate they got the "perfect" rockerline that NOONE else uses - bull, there are so many equal rockerlines, and on a foilboard the details in the rockerline means a lot less than on a surfboard, BUT really important with the right nose rockerline for given size and use and conditions on a foilboard, true.
I love this type of rockerline too, for pocket boards.
The Skate on your picture above is a tad more flat than the classic Ketos Pocket boards many of us ride.
But it has more "nose scoop" than the Zeeko Pocket board which is more flat yes.
My 118 cm Ketos Pocket board, more curve/rocker than the picture you show:
And there is a 107 cm Pocket board too, also lots of nose kick in this one:
The 107 is used by many, but not me.
I use the Pocket 130, when medium or unstable wind, and the 118 when windier or loads of waves:
Must say I dont understand what you mean by "this rockerline is unmatched by any other pocket board currently available"
Ketos Pocket boards has been available for years
What I am saying is, that there are pocket boards available with both more and less nosekick/scoop/rockerline than your picture of the Groove Skate
It looks like an awesome board, true, but I dont get the rockerline claim?
