Wow, I didn't think people like weird stuff so much. The deck of this thing is every bit as odd. The model it's based off of is much thicker in the tail so I had to adjust the thickness with the outline changed. At first I started a step tail, after e-mailing a in the works pic to Jeramiah, he reminded me that he wanted a concave deck. This worked out perfect with the tail design. The concave deck's are cool for a couple reasons. 1) They feel good to paddle due to matching the curve of your chest. 2) Your feet stick to the board especially when going vertical into the lip.
