Yeah something cool about making your own board. 2X4 millimetre core of some light plywood like poplar would work pretty well. Don't try to laminate more than two layers at a time as it is easy to get voids.

nsi makes a neat two way top feet setup called the t90. I bought one. It has a T style one strap method in a diamond shape for both feet.

the board you want sounds like my worst nightmare. Please respect others and keep that crap out of the lineup. you want a board with no rail to rail transition ability. Flat rocker because we all know waves are flat and then you want it to be built wtintip "no float" and small so you have no volume to ride a wave with.

Anyway not up for a debate on this its just too stupid.

Is it me or couple of guys here are in the middle of nervous brake down? I still want a surfboard for waves who told you otherwise. I just want 3 strap configuration. The flat rocker mutant or crossover also with3 straps is my idea for TT replacement. Try to understand what you are reading first.

Trow quad fin surfboard? 4'8" swallowtail. Its a two strap, but you could put the NSI t90 on the front or two front straps.

i guess what threw me off is when you said you guys chase "waves" like windsurfers i figured i would help a guy out that is clueless. that's it. i immediately posted again saying ride whatever pleases you.
