It looks okay, but they need to give me one so I can be certain. A 5'-10" should suffice.

The surf ranch looks amazing. You could have more tubes in a day than you would have in decade.

I wonder how it works in the ocean? smack my head. Support your local shaper. Eat organic.

A guy in the comments section has got it right "Would like to see this in gutless 1-2ft not 4ft perfect, vs a Baked Potato to get a true comparison"

Looks interesting. I've been leaning towards a performance orientated step down for my next board.

not exactly reinventing the wheel with this shape .... but I like it.
Great Centro America shape.

Yep. Many of us have been riding Florida specific boards crafted by Florida shapers for our whole surfing lives.

It would be too squirty for me in epoxy, but would be fun in a poly.

Yeah No Brainer for of course Kelly Slater can make a board look good at perfect surf ranch. I bet I could make a board for him, we could call it the No Floater Epoxy Disaster Project (NFEDP) and he could rip on it at surf ranch.
Here's the real shaper challenge - make a board that makes ME look good on perfect 1-2 gutless blown out Florida surf chop....
