Nice!

Not many dudes punting out mutants these days. You have some good design principles going on there with carbon uni at 0 and on the diagonal and only one front fin.

Are you going strapless with feet out of the foot straps going forward and then strapped going backwards? or strapped both ways? If strapped both ways I suggest you consider moving the rear fins forward. The closer the fins are to your rear foot the tighter you can turn the board.

Thanks man. Yeah some more carbon on an angle would have been nice I think.

I plan on riding in straps both directions and when required ride strapless switch on big tacks to get upwind and then also riding in the straps toeside when lit up enough.

Was going to be a boost machine but instead covered the deck
in sup grip instead of leaving a space
for some nice footstraps and pads. The grip might still come off and some straps which are
more impact absorbing might go on.
