Here's a board I made for myself as a 'Car Board' ie the one you leave in your car that can ride a bit of everything. This is the first one I have done all of the work on (except for help from Dan DMS on the super tricky bits! Also some guidance from the good crew at DMS Surfboards) But 99% of it is my own work..... I love boards like this as they fit perfectly between riding SUP and getting right back onto your standard shortboards, I try to keep something like this in the quiver as a converter between the two. It's a 6'8 x 21 x 2 3/4 Single with Concave -> Double -> to vee out the tail. I rode it this morning in terrible waves and it does what I wanted it to, goes like the clappers in crap. I think I found a new best friend! Given I'm posting it here I guess you could say I'm stoked with how it turned out........ P.S, Not advertising my boards as I do not sell them, i'm just stoked to be able to with the help of professional manufacturers make things like this.

Yeah, great crossover board. I ride a flat, wide fish as a crossover. A standard shortboard just seems to thin and narrow these days.

You need to ride this one. You can have a go once my initial froth has subsided.

Great looking board think there is a real market for these kind of boards.I mainly surf Sups bit of longboarding but all my old shortboards have that sinking feeling. A cross over like this looks the way to go.

I have a similar board in my colection(yours looks better though)the guy I bought it off called it a POD apparently they,re realy big in the states at places like Rincon,Trestles and so on.They,re great for sitting right in the pocketand manouvering in the steep part of the wave next to the foam.
