A good comment could for a good start, what is too simple and what is better to go more in detail (I was also thinking that the aspect ratio is really important and it is missing).zob wrote:I think you simplyfied this alitle too much, to give you any serious comment.
shapes with sharp edges can spray you in the faceShoe wrote:I am curious about this. I have never built a board, but these upstate NY winters do get long, and I am toying with the idea of giving it a shot. I have worked on yachts for years and toured many boat building plants and am comfortable with the process. But I don't know where to start with shaping. I am about as average size as you can get and thinking about building a light wind board. Realistically, I can see shapes: 1,2,3,7 and possibly 9 as options. As for a Roc and Con, I am really at a loss. I know in the snowboard world some manufacturers are releasing reverse rocker boards, but I am not sure how that would handle in the water. I am sure many of these shapes have been tried, and I am curious about the pro's and con's of each. I know the line drawings are crude, but for the new guy like myself, I think it's good place to start.
