The board on the left is an 8’0 for me, packing in the bulk I got out of my 9’1 without the fear factor of not being able to duckdive. Nothing worse than being caught inside at Aileen’s, except maybe that last thought running through your head being, ‘if I could’ve buried my board into this heaving face, I could have avoided getting waxed… arrggghhh’.

8’0 x 19 1/4″ x 3 1/4″

With that all in mind, the cut out blank on the right is aiming at the same thing, with a little more length and thickness – all the blank has – combined with a slightly straighter outline, wide point marginally forward of mid and increased width forward to really optimise paddle for Mark Killeen.

Autumn looms…
