Hideoscillous

ie. Hideous Oscillations
from the Latin root hideous to the eye, yet one possessing beautiful oscillating motions in the water. 
The old adage ‘looks can be deceiving’ & ‘true beauty lies within’ are the driving forces of this unassuming possessor of great character. I have been pondering a new paradigm for rockers & hull contours for over three years now. The days pass & I’ve continued to grind out & refine existing concepts … all the while knowing something new was coming. A groaning of enlightened concept awaiting a bursting forth. Why did I wait this long? Well, things must germinate … and I didn’t think I could draw in CAD what my mind saw … I would need to hand shape the prototype. A new balanced/centered rocker, moderate entry, low tail rocker, with heavy heavy tow board-like concaves running nose-to-tail & dynamic steep drop rocker concave running dual inset bonzer-esque caves which exhaust straight off the tail block. The outline, width & thickness determine the wave type. This one – the Hideoscillous, transforms small point surf like no other board I’ve made ’til now it feels like the board rides on air – no friction – yet corners on rails (as hard as you can push it with no slipping) & balances lip release with perfect control. I may go so far as to say that this new rocker & steep concave bottom can be placed on any outline & foil anywhere to increase the horsepower of any board five-fold. 
Ride approximately 6″ – 7″ shorter, 1 1/4″ wider & 1/8″ thicker than your good waves performance shorty. 
The ugly duckling that transforms into a swan when you step foot on it.
