I like the versatility to cover a range of activities.
Looks like Axis foil, what wings did you use wind foiling and sup foiling, if different.
Guessing its the dual us boxes for foiling, I can imagine another possible 5 boxes for fin options!

Nice 4in1 board.
Helps reducing gear dramatically.
I'm already on the 3. Generation of my selfdesigned but custombuild 4in1 boards.
I'm not a pro board builder, just a passionate surfdude with some ideas, maybe it's the engineer in me

wow to both of you .

Scott - i would imagine that each different use would have a preferred rocker line.

when you are doing a board to cover all bases which rocker line do you go to or favour ?

You're right
Is a lower rocker than the previous incarnation which was the hipster twin with box's

But not so flat in that it loses it's surfing capabilities.

Not intended to be a flat water windsurf rocker though. It's for light wind wavesailing.

515. Yeah axis. 78 wing is the good al rounder

So it's getting the characteristics of the old Naish Hover 122, but with added nose rocker?

Scotty, "The Bucket" by Kings of Leon. I thought it was about teenage suicide with the whole "you kick the bucket and ill swing my legs" "always remember the pact that we made, too young to die, but old is the grave" Then I thought it is a song having lyrics for anyone who has trouble dealing with fame, anxiety and depression and the calamity that may follow. The song is apparently about the bands bassist who was reacting to their newly found fame and the lyrics are about the way the other band members saw and perceived him on tour in Japan and not really about teenage suicide or such although perhaps the lyrics tie in with the emo trends of the time of 2004. I guess the lyrics of the song could be dedicated for anyone who chose to leave this earth earlier than was intended, which in windsurfing is for example: the late Angus Chater or perhaps the very great and late Peter Volwater. May each of their memories be a blessing. I guess the reference to 18, star and balding could be someone else and have nothing to do with the above....Cheers R
