An interesting looking new 14' DW board from Dave Kalama/Imagine I hadn't even heard about until I saw it. Didn't get to paddle it in the ocean, only in flat but looks like could be some fun in the right conditions...

It looks like three different boards welded together - at least in these photos. The nose may be inspired by the original Naish 17 downwind board. I'd love to try this board, and I'm pleased he wasn't tempted to make it super-narrow. Nice to see a new board with plenty of rocker too, contrasting with the latest trend for flatter DW boards. I'm sorry that I'll never have the opportunity to buy one here in Europe, I think.

I wouldnt mind a go, but im firmly in the broader nose dw camp.


the rocker looks nice. reckon with his background it would dw very nicely

Some more pics of the bottom, you can see where it goes from the rounded, nicely rockered nose into flatter middle backwards from the red logo, then into a moderate tail rocker. Wednesday's looking like a good day for a board like this on the Goldy...
