Morning all..........i just shaped a new stick which was fun, however I feel i should have put more flip in the tail. I want something that gets in to the waves fast but will still turn in a critical spot.... I surf average beach breaks that can be mushy or sucky.I was thinking 90 mm in the nose and 50mm in the tail ?

What was the nose and tail rocker measurements off the last "good" board you had?

Worth also measuring a 1 foot off the nose and tail ... or if ya like me, every 3 inches along the stringer.

Then, it becomes a question of the rocker at the rail. So, bottom contours need to be taken into consideration.

90mm and 50mm ... how much is that in inches? ;)

Numbers are meaningless without board length info
