new board design from down under

Post by nathan paff » Sat Dec 01, 2007 7:44 am

heres a peak at a new proto type fresh off the mold carbon deck designed by Eddy Spearing of New zealand and created by me in australia. flat bottom kicktail, rear toe wings, dogeared kicktail concave, medium stiff flex radical cambered centre section (creating power pocket void) meeting the top edge of Eddies trademark "footbowl" 360 degree front foot concave and cup holder?? feels great underfoot!!

Thanks for posting that. Amazing. I'm blown away. Are you planning any production? Please post more performance reviews

Definitely out of the box design, looks like it's got potential. Care to provide some detail as to purpose on the "Power pocket Void"?
Skate 'em if you got 'em.

Holy crap.... thats really cool. I always thought about shapes like that for slalom, nice to see something thinking out of the box.

Post up some videos of it riding, looks amazing keep it up

Now were talking! That tail is more along the lines I'm thinking. Looks like it has some of the S-Camber design thought in there.

Congrats to both of you. Keep us informed and God Luck with it, EH!
Many Happy Pumps!

I was wondering when you would notice it. I immediately thought of you when I saw that kicktail... :D

Nice work Nathan and great "outside of the box" thinking and design Eddie.

Hmmm, That certainly is an interesting idea for molded-in foot placement. Construction looks well done as well.

My 2 Cents:
Toe wings would bother me as I like to have my toes hanging off the edge, if my toes aren't hanging off an edge then I lose my footing on toe-side turns.

I'm one of those non-camber guys now and for me personally, that rising camber under my rear foot would slow me down I think. But then again, there's still the camber-contingent out there who are faster than me on a regular basis(Gary Fluitt for example).

Otherwise that's some good stuff. Good Luck - Paul
I just dig slalom!
