hi dwight (and everyone else),
do you have some info about the rocker line and outline of the wavetrays?
would be great if you could share the info with us (:-)
ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s very hard to compare rocker on boards. What I have done on all the different boards IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve owned, is place a 2m long ruler on the bottom and compare how each board differs. My Cabrinha Spoiler, Jimmy Lewis Vulcan, Roberts TT, and Dinner Tray, all appeared to be identical, or so close I couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t see a difference. The wave tray appears to be straighter until you get near the tips. The outline on the wave tray is very parallel. So parallel that if you press too hard with the front foot, it can throw a lot of water in your face. Boards with a lot curve in the outline donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t throw as much water in your face. However, the wave tray does go upwind better than any of the other boards IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve ridden with more curved outlines. There may be a connection.
