Cause he get his back foot knee wrecks many years ago, shortening his shortboarding lifetime. Made this board with stiff tail ( no much lift tail and straight rear outlines cause of that bad knee. If this knee accident wasn't happen, he would probably one of best long boarder competitor of his time.

Yes Chrisrum, From his long boarding experience he use to enter early into the wave so his mono and strong stance of both legs from the rear of the board coming from both legs so make his strong and fast bottom turn own style . He has been watching and sharing with Martin Potter by the 80' , Martin has a strong back foot stance too; knee wound and influence from the "Potz" style of surfing make up his own style , strong bottom and power maneuver too ,Yes Nick got a definitive strong bottom turn , you are right Chrisrum

Thanks Tardy, I better like Quatro or Twinzer ...if I get thruster would be this one I'm calling the Booster . It's a Thruster with 6 channels combo:

If any one want to make it build, I can send file customized to individual weight.
