The new trend is pointing to that direction of the new raceboard design what Carafino is talking about.davesails7 wrote:The description of the design philosophy of this raceboard doesn't make sense to me. It jumps back and forth between catamarans, planing hulls, to displacement hulls. A lot of talk about a wave piercing bow, but the nose of the board in the picture is flat, not pointy? Also, how can it be designed to pierce through waves and also create large amounts of lift to lift the nose up over waves?
