Looks like you're have to be pretty careful to keep the front corner out the water if burying the rail in a long bottom turn!
Doesn't seem to be a problem for him though.* -Scourge of the Seven Seas-*

Great to see radical designs but I must say that Stone's earlier shapes (from his dad) were a lot prettier.
This one may be so far ahead of its time you wonder where the market for it is, and how long it would take for the rest of us to catch up.
I just remember Kauli's maggot-tail JP wave board – and that never made it into production, did it?
If others can''t sail it, or if something just looks wrong, then we won't see many of them.
Great to hear they Jaeger Stone is back on the PWA tour next year though – and that he may do this year's Chile event.Off games with bad back. And a bit crabby.

Killerfish has been trying something similar - http://www.killerfishcustom.blogspot...fvanguard.html
Great to see him back, and I like his top turns with that board. Quite sure he can mix it up, he just goes for the style of top turn that he wants to do at the moment. Great sailor.Rig - Simmer Black Tips 3.7 - 5.3, HSM FL 5.7

I quite like what's going on in that one as well, taking the rail almost right up level with the nose, we're definitely going to see more of this, in fact it's given me another idea...What is an epigram?
A dwarfish whole, its body brevity, and wit its soul.

TJ i disagree with you whole heartedly.
I was there at gnaraloo that day. The wave has some very fast sections and Jaeger was killing it out there. Earlier that morning he was riding the bumble bee diamond tail quad while I was out there and riding style was much the same.
The bottom shape differs from the tomo vanguard. the nose has the EEV but not the double concave out side the EEV.
No channels in the tail either. Stoney used his tried and tested double concave bottom he uses on the keel and bumble bee shapes.
The board looks very much like a bumble bee with a swallow cut into the diamond tail and the nose hacked off but with a shade more thickness infront of the mast track.
It also looks like the wide point is quite far forward.
The package looked good and I'm sure the boards will improve rapidly too with the next iteration.
