I reckon Stone was first. In the beginning of last year o i saw Mr Stone in the water with his. By memory i think he said "thought i'd chop of what doesn't get used"

Our local guys rock. I spoke to a guy from Belgium in Lancelin about a month ago and he was sailing a Stone board and Servene sails. He said the board is tough...can't kill it. And he actually told me he had broken too many JP's so sticking with Stone.

I cut the nose off my JP after seeing all the team guys doin it... They had proto freestye boards with all the tail cut off too.. back in 2003.. this is the only photo I could find but there was some more radical efforts..

Sweet, I had a feeling that this was about to happen, why not? Surfboards are doing it, Kiting boards are doing it, and SUP boards are doing it, it only makes sense.
The nose rarely is in the water anyway, adding zero to flotation or performance, it's just something to poke a hole in your sail, or something to get smashed by the mast.
I've cut the noses off two of my boards and never felt like something is missing, other than a threat to my sail.
Old "flip-tip" ws boards are great for this modification, you'll never miss the tip, and look more current in the mean time.

So one person made it work and they all race to copy it.
So next year there will be one or two stubbies that work, the rest will be crap.
2017 they will all work well.

A $3K gamble for the punter. Go for it. I'll pass for the moment.

i remember seeing the tabou one over a year back, not saying it's the very first produced, but it might be before the fanatic and jp ones. i think these are different graphics than the pics i saw. i know people have been cutting the noses off the stone boards for a while (like the frog boards) but aren't these different again? i like the idea, hope it's a step forward
