Nice one, Adam. Looks floaty. What are the specs on this? Same as listed for the 170 earlier in this thread?

Taylor
The specs are the same but we changed the radius :thumpsup:
The guys have just come back from testing some large radius boards in Japan and they sucked!
Great in the deep POW but no good on the harder stuff
We went back down to about 9M

So only difference will be Radius and waist width.

On the plane to test tomorrow so fingers crossed.

I'll measure it up tonight as we made a new mold for it and made camber with heat differential not the mold.
Long nose rocker to camber with long tail rocker.

the board is 4.3 KG with all hardware and splitpin, about 0.7 kg lighter than the same size 170.
Will weight with just nose and tail clips and hooks after base grind tomorrow

Definitely a float machine. :rock:

Hope we get some steep and deep!

Cheers
