6'4" X 22.50" X 3.25" EPS/EPOXY
Double Apex Rails
Double Apex Rail features fuller flat deck with tapered outer periphery rail line and deck along with thinner boxy rails on otherwise thicker boards with full rails. Maintains maximum thickness along with thinner proportioned rail especially funtional on down railed aspect of the Mush Buster.
Added benefits are maintaining extra volume or adding extra volume while maintaining the sensitivity of thinner rails.
now that is awesome!! looks great as usualReplyDelete
that shape is screaming drive and speed!ReplyDelete
Whoaw! I don't know if it's the triple stringer or those rails, but I think this is the coolest looking Mush' you've done so far. An I can't believe how many of them you've done in such a short period of time. I wish I could take a look at those rails for myself. Great Job W, as always.ReplyDelete
Wayne - how big and heavy is Nate? Just wondering about the 3.25" width and how that scales with the rider weight?ReplyDelete
Thanks Alex this is a good alternative for maintaining extra volume while maintaining some rail sensitivity on short thick shapes with modern bottom contours.ReplyDelete
Have you been getting in the water lately?
Dan, Nate is around a svelt 225 lbs. Northern climes with thick rubber all year around. At the moment recovering from elbow surgery and is getting back in the water after a few months off. Rides primarily 7'2" - 7'10" - 8'2" custom Dyna-Glydes.ReplyDelete
Whoaw! So that's a much shorter board than what he usually rides. That's really cool. I think I'd like my next board to be around 6'4" as well. But I need to get the one you made for me trough a more intensive work out first! And no unfortunately I haven't been able to get out lately and the reason for that is:ReplyDelete
1 - no so much swell i the south bay since the last big swell.
2- I got a new born @ home and the mother won't let me get away. ;) (I don't really want to anyway)
But this summer I'm gonna KILL your board! :D
Alex, Oh yeah the new addition to the family, congrats! I hope you are enjoying parenthood! ;-)ReplyDelete
The emphasis of Nates design was to be able to get up to planning speed quickly on smaller weaker waves. This will allow Nate to get early entry speed and the lower rocker will help maintain forward drive with out too much “flapping” to maintain speed. Not a pretty sight watching 220lbs guys killing Corbina’s on the inside reforms. Lol.
At +3.25” thick at only 6’4” in length leaves an extremely full rail with modern bottom contours. The Double Apex Rails essentially has a thinner rail on a shape that is relatively thick in proportion to length. I had to shape the rail twice, once at the full contour, then the second rail/deck contour to remove the bulk and still have a full boxy rail with out losing the volume at the height of contour. Full tucked edges through the entire bottom.
hay are you indicating that I am fat... haha I also need the volume because of 2 neck surgery's I broke it in 2001 and c2-c4 are fused and c1-c7 the spinal cord area has been widened lamentatomyReplyDelete
I believe its called any way I have to paddle a bit forward that how I used to because I cant lift my head up very well. Also I just had my elbow fixed I am falling apart in my old age... Wayne I have been paddling around in the afternoon when the south wind blows at peaks not that good but good therapy!!
don't forget I also have a 6'6 dg fish that I ride also!!ReplyDelete
Nate, you are an inspiration to me, I have many of the same chronic injuries. Now that I've put on some mileage with these injuries it amazes me how you recover so quickly. You rock!ReplyDelete
